Halad,
If you aren't using your dog this weekend, I would be happy to take it off your hands. It would be a nice "guide dog" out on the ice. The dog and I would have the lake to ourselves. By the way, how many lines in the water is the dog allowed? Has it mastered the use of a hand auger yet?

Good luck out in the woods this weekend.

So if I am planning a trip up there on the 21st of Nov I should be ok? Also, I have never been able to get up there on early ice, it has always been late in the season when we drive miles out there so do I need to bring the 4 wheeler or can I walk a short distance to find fish?

Thanks for all the info guys and gals!

You better call up here before you come up you may or may not be able to walk out. It takes a lot of cold weather to make good ice and the wind is constantly moving it around. After Dec. 1st. is probably a better bet. Hey Cody the dog isnt that dumb lots of open water out there see you after xmas.

I will be in Backus the first week of the year again. If the ice is drivable, I'll be hitting Winnie again a couple of days. If your schedule is open then, maybe you can make it this time. I'll keep in touch as the time draws nearer.

      We drive by the stripping station on Cutfoot weekly & try to keep people up on that too. I think it may be a bit later here, will check it out tomorrow

      Have a couple spots that are 10' open, I live on north side of Pike Bay, large rocks along shoreline helps heat water. Hard to see the ice condition on the Bay as there is a lot of slush on top, once that melts and the warm sun hits the ice it will go quick. Our new Chesapeake pup discovered she lives on a lake yesterday.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff
    • Bigfatbert
      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..
