Is there anything being caught by the bridge between Wahp and Breck? Last I heard it was slow. Anything is appreciated.

I have not been down that way and I have not received any reports lately.

Generally this time of year look in a differing location then you mentioned, try farther South or North of #210 a ways.

Be VERY careful near bridges, the ice is poor in necked down areas!

thanks for the reply BE, are you saying a few miles north or south of 210 or what? i noticed there are a lot of shacks right in town by the dakota ave. bridge. would you recommend the main channel or deep bends on the river for walleyes, thanks for the help

I would get away from the herd, that bite tends to be early ice then slow from then on. You may see a bite again there at late ice?

Looks for deeper sharp bends and then work the inside turns at the head and tail-out of the deeper holes. Active feeding fish tend to hunt these areas, deep fish tend to look and not bite much, lookers not hookers. Low light periods tend to produce best on average for walleye.

Don't get hung up on "deep". Deep is relative to the area you fish. Most active fish may be in as shallow as 3', seen that often in that region. Odds are still good they will relate to deeper pools, but feed shallow, very near structure such as snag piles.

Try 1/2 oz. KastMasters or a 1/2 oz. blade bait like a Gold/metal fleck ZIP lure tipped with a minnow head.

For pike try a smaller Rattle Trap style lure (3/8 to 1/2) and RIP-IT...then Pause...RIP-IT...then Pause. On less active fish pound the Trap so it wobbles from side to side and produces a more subtle chatter sound. I recommend a light wire 7-strand steel leader or the pike will snatch your trap and be gone. Pike go nuts on this, a good choice in the day. You often get bigger active walleye on this at dusk too. Try silver/black or a bluegill colored trap, they imitate small Sheephead/drum and bass well, a common forage in that region. The Millennium Shad traps sold here on FM.com are awesome for ice fishing, I use them a lot!

      I remember the picture you are talking about, but I think it was last year some time and I just don't think I could wad through all of Duff's politic fall out to find it!  😵   One of my buddies put up those adhesive backed thin cork-board squires on two of his cabin walls. Pretty fun idea of his family growing up at the cabin.  With fishing, hunting pictures mixed in.

      Looks like their still running the small motel. Hope they rebuild it was a pretty nice place when they remodeled a few years ago.

      Head-O-Lakes and Wakemup were pretty much ice free this past weekend.  Spring Bay has ice as it's really protected.  Some ice in Richie but the west wind on Monday pushed it all to the east end.

      Sounds like cost/benefit analysis is underway...

      I tried finding the pic @Duffman posted of the board he put together for his basement/bar I think it was but no dice.  Too much for me sift through.  It was pretty cool though and maybe in line with the OP’s idea.   @leech~~, got some time and mad search skills to dig that one up?

      How is the ice build-up coming along? I can't wait until Head-O-Lakes and Wakemup freeze so that I can get to my place across the ice. I'm hoping for another low-slush year.

      Jim Zupancich, who works out of the flagship store in Ely, said the Zup’s in Cook has been in business for more than 20 years. He added: “We do OK there. It’s a living. We’ll get back on our feet.”   Jim didn't give much of an endorsement but I understand the economics. One of the early articles had the store manager saying that they would rebuild. A later article quoted one of the Zupancich's saying that they would assess the possibility of rebuilding. I think that we all hope that they will rebuild, and hopefully they had good insurance to make it an easy choice.

      As of mid July nothing was going on there. I drove in there, think I parked in the bar!

      Picked up a new supply of pretreated cleaning patches and some Blackhorn loading tubes tonight at Shooting Sports.   I’m just dabbling with getting things ready but the more I do, the more motivated I get to go.  Too bad you’re so wrapped up in hockey this time of year that you can’t really get into it now!  Good to spend time with the kids but ignoring the call is tough.

      Drove by there this morning.  Definitely a sad deal for owners, employees and people in the community.  I also feel for the deer hunters who lost the deer there being processed.  We are hopeful that they will rebuild.
