Has anyone seen the lake recently enough to give an ice report? Was hoping to at least get a 4wheeler out there next week.

Good to hear. When you are filled early enough there is no need to skip class! These fish have had it much easier than the birds did this fall though. If I dont end up workin all week we could go find some slabs.

walleyewacker,

when you refer to "filling early enough" so as not having to skip class, do you mean filling out I.E. got your limit?? please check out the Ice Fishing Main Forum and the thread regarding protecting panfish. i'm not condemning keeping a limit of crappies, but if they are big ones, think twice about keeping them. i know it's hard to break old habits, but we need to start to think about the panfish too. keeping a limit of smaller ones is not the norm, but is usually more beneficial to the fishery that taking 10 10+" crappies. just my thoughts, and a few others. good luck fishing . later...

Whoa easy fellas....as in class he meant here...at SDSU... in SD. And filling up I meant greenheads and geese from this fall. Kind of a joke hope no one took it that serious. Especially with diamond, I treat that lake like my own kid. Glad to see more people care like I do.

Good to hear from you Juneau4. You let me know when the swamp heats up. My father-in-law makes it sound like it's always hot, I think he just wants me to get home and fish with him more!

How will our Warriors be this coming year? I don't think I could name a player anymore. I sure miss the good ole days!

I finally get to talk some smack with your son again, he just joined one of Houtie's fantasy leagues again. Good to hear from him.

Talk to you later

      I live on the north side of Cass on the Pughole. We had 30 inches of ice out in front of my dock yesterday. Pughole is the flowage between Kitchie and Cass. I'm 200 yards off Cass and the current is pretty strong there. Top few inches was pretty mushy. Nothing happening as far as fish yet. But they are coming. Jumbos move in soon. Also seen a truck out off of Star Island on Monday evening. I imagine they have more ice out on the main lake than I have. I'm for sure going to be out ice fishing through next week at my place. Ice hasn't even begun to pull from shore at my place.

      Hey there DUCKHTR . No need for a guide to hunt divers on Leech or Big Winnie . Your spots that you hunted early season on Leech will also be good spots for later season . I don't duck hunt anymore , but I used to hunt a lot on Winnie , mostly all my hunting there was on the north end Third River Flowage . Travel north from Deer River up Hwy 46 to the sign that directs you to turn left , then travel west on that gravel road for about 10-12 miles to the 3rd river boat landing . You should have no problem launching your boat there . From the landing outward is a lot of tall reeds on both sides of you  , this flowage widens out as you go farther out ,and depending on your wind direction on the day of your hunt , you can just pick and choose a spot  , all the way out , and down to Mallard Point where it really opens up to big water on Winnie . You will need to buy up 3-4 dozen Bluebill decoys , and also use your Mallard decoys you must already have . We used to have great shoots in that area of the lake . In the dark of the morning when your heading out you may have other hunters shine a flashlight your way , they are just letting you know that they are already set up in that spot , don't worry , there is plenty of room for many different hunting groups in the flowage . Once you get a few hunts below your belt , you will then have a better understanding of some of your favorite spots to set up ..  I had one particular spot we used to call the "Meat Market" because we used to kill so many ducks there in that spot . Just put out your decoys in the spot you choose , and then  pull your boat into the reeds parallel to the water , wait for legal shooting hrs , and have at it . From my recollection the Bills would start to trickle down from the north around the 20th or so of Oct .. I I hope this helps you out somewhat .

      Well played.  Wish more people had that attitude.  Even a reduced statewide limit and/or a minimum keeper size would be fine by me.

      I crossed paths with the person that works over there yesterday & got to ask if they would be netting on the Opener? Their reply was it might be July.  We'll see, may run into them again in the near future.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      Tom, good thoughts now we need good weather!

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.

      I heard back from Michael Schwanke a guide working out of Crane Lake that I have known for several years. I told him we are heading up on May 17th. He said it will be close real close. I depends on the night temps need to remain over freezing.....we will keep fingers crossed for a week or two and then decide what to do.
