Shagman I drove off the access landing last sunday county 35, it was good going. I would think the west one by Northern Acres would be to.

I was out on Bowstring on Friday night and saturday night out from one of the north accesses in about 17 feet one night and 23 the other. All together we caught a grand total of 4 perch, all really small. One swallowed it so we kept him, way small though. Hey who was that out there saturday night that I talked to real late? Well sorry I dont have more info. Later guys, brian

I got stuck out there yesterday with my Dodge 4x4, while trying to make it to a favorite fishing spot. Two hours later, I was on my way home. The snow's getting pretty deep. Think I'll take the snowmobile next time.

Fished Bowstring yesterday thinking this will probably be my last time here before the end of Walleye season we targetted Perch and Walleye only. It is getting hard to get around with all the snow I fished the shore lines and by dark was able to find four Walleyes and nine Perch over 9 inches. We released many small Northern and Perch I did see a couple Crappie caught but sounded like it was slow fishing fo them.

Hey, Bill. Just curious if that was you who talked to us when we were asked why three of us were fishing by one hole? My buddy had two crappies on the ice. If so did you fish the same area only closer to shore later? Just curious!! Anyway the crappie fishing was really S-L-O-W. Three of us fished two days and ended up with 21 and also 9 perch. Lots of hours for those critters though. The only reason we came back Sunday was it was about the only lake where we could still drive on and that was very marginal especially after the wind Sunday. Anyone fishing the area now I would suggest bringing other means of transportation on the area lakes!! At least all the snowmobilers are happier this year.

      Fished the SW corner today about 2 miles out. Lowest amount of ice I found was 10" and a few spots well over 20". Before anyone gets too excited I'm pretty sure these spots were where the ice push up on itself or below itself. Rough ice in general. Marked a lot of fish, tried everything and eventually got a few at dusk on a dead stick and a spoon. No big cracks but a few about half a foot and completely open. Nice to get out but was a long walk out and back.

      Well I wish you guys would do it after walleye closes. The last few years you guys have done it on the final weekend of walleye  so some people won't do it . Cats don't close so you can do it whenever you want.

      Dakota lithium has a cool little box like that.  Comes with a lithium battery thats half the weight but a bit pricey at around $200

      Didn't get to swing the sledge on Saturday. Had a bum ankle that has kept me sidelined and was feeling pretty good on Friday so I got out and about shopping. May have over did it and suffered a little bit of a set back but it's pretty good today. Should be able to swing the hammer tomorrow.

      Open water right in front of launch on linwood. 2 guys went through this morning. Up to their waists in water. Just be careful walking out. Had 9 inches everywhere I drilled on the lake.
