Hi, I used to live down the road from Nord when I was in High School. What kind of info are you looking for? The lake has a lot of northerns and some decent crappie fishing. There is also some great largemouth fishing out there. If you are looking for more specific info let me know and I'll try to help you out. I had a friend who grew up on the lake as well.

they need to do something with that public access. I was there on satuarday to do some bass fishing, but after looking at the ramp, I decided not to try to launch, since I have a bunk trailer. ended up at lone lake, the summer water activity was just nuts, I did land one bass and one small pike.

I don't have a ton of specific advice. I've caught nice bass almost anywhere along the shoreline and in the large bay on the east side of the lake. There are a number of weed islands in the middle of the last that hold pike. Also there is a small dug out channel to the right of the public access that sometimes holds bass and crappie. How did you weekend of fishing turn out? Drop us a report when you have the time.

we caught tons and tons of pike trolling in the weeds with spoons. didnt seem to matter what color.(although yellow and red "5 of diamonds" was hot for a while) there were a few pike in the 20 inch range, but all the fish were pretty tiny. that lake should do somethin about that. we didnt try for crappie or bass so cant say anything there. we did try dragging lindy rigs for walleye, but had no luck.

      I don't see ice going out til April. Some more 50 degree temps on the way, but still getting near or below freezing most nights and an extended forecast I saw is showing highs around 30 and even some single digit lows at night for the last couple weeks March. Little if any rain too.

      Looks like there's plenty of ice still in Spring Bay! Kids snowmobile racing.

      My wife is in total agreement with yours. I love the quiet and remoteness, my wife hates the ice travel!

      There aren't a lot of cabins in the bay to begin with, a whole other bonus! For the folks on the south side of the bay, it's an access issue as well. People in general are less likely to go in the winter when you don't have road access, because now you introduce ice conditions, snow depth, darkness, cold, and other factors into the trip. While I have always enjoyed those challenges, it is much different to drive up on a Friday night and pull up to your place versus get there at 10pm, unload machines and gear, and go across the lake at night with gear in tow. I love it. My wife hates it. My daughter is in the middle.   Enjoy it up there.

      Being we had a few hours of weather cold enough to make ice I decided to check out one of the small shallow lakes in the St Cloud area.  Ice was in surprisingly good shape this morning, had about 6-7 inches of hard ice again.   Found a pretty decent bite in 8-11 ft of water.  Crappies were riding high in the water colom while sunfish remained close to the bottom for the most part.  Best bait for me was a 3mm motoroil/chrome with a impulse mayfly. By mid afternoon we could definitely tell the ice wasn't as firm as it was in the morning. By the time we left at 4pm I had put all thoughts of returning tomorrow morning out of my mind.  At no point did I feel unsafe, we were prepared for whatever, floatation suits, ropes and ice picks at the ready😏😁.  Today was definitely my last day on the ice for the yr...next stop, spring carp/suckers😁   VID_20240229_150704553.mp4

      Just trying to make as little noise as possible once holes have been drilled.

      I take my sxs all the way down Phillips Rd. road to Cains driveway and turn around at the entrance to Laura's and her son's Brian's driveways, Brian bought Davey Crockett's old place.(I think that was his name). You see them fishing on his dock at the beginning of the narrow part of the channel heading in Black Bay. They have the only 2 driveways that are plowed during the winter down Phillips Rd. My neighbor, whom you met, used to plow his boat house road so we access the lake easier in the winter for ice fishing, but he doesn't ice fishing much anymore, so just sleds down that road. I think I know who lets you access the lake, nice of him. I'm surprised more people in Black Bay don't use their places in the winter. I'm heading up in the morning!

      I drove on I-35 over Albert Lea Lake on Jan 5. It wasn't even partially frozen, and it's like 6-8 ft average depth or something like that. Those lakes in Sourthern Minnesota didn't even get 2 months of ice this year.
