I fish South Center alot in the summer, but I've only fished it a couple times during the hard water season.

Is the ice drivable yet?

Where is a good spot to access the lake if your on foot?

Thanks, any info would be great.

Hey Joe--its sport... or was sport.. now Exudedude... somebody already had Sport on this board.

Anyway, I talked to the sherrifs office and Conservation officer on the subject. They say there is 12" in most spots, however the ice is goofy this year.. they are still finding spots that have only 4" and are very much warning people against vehicle travel.

I wouldn't do it man! just not worth it!

I haven't been up your way to much this year. How's the fishing been?.

I haven't even been out to Chisago yet. Have you been out on the south end?

It's a long walk to some of my favorite spots. I guess I'm going to have to move ATV up further on the priority list.

My brother wants to fish South Center but I think he was planning on driving out. I'm not sure what we'll end up doing.

Caught plenty of nice sized pan fish over the weekend, but really had to weed through alot of small ones. Lot of fun though. I'll have to take the kids out there they'll have a blast.

We ended up at South Center. we fished near all the houses between the points. I know there are some piggy sunfish in there, I just don't know where to find them in the winter.

Fished South Center again this morning. Had ice forming over my hole even with the latern and heater going.
Didn't know if I was going to get the feeling back in the old fingers after setting up my tip-up.(took awhile)
Had some good action, caught about 30+ crappies, but only got 9 that were in the 9 inch range.
heading downstairs in a bit to fry them up for dinner. mmm-mmm

I was fishing the hole in Wispering Bay. I got there about 6:30ish and left at 10:30.

I was still marking(and catching) fish when I left, but the bite had slowed down a bit. I would have stayed if I could.

The vex was lit up like a christmas tree. It was showing fish from about 8'(bait fish?) to about 20'.

I caught quite a few between 12' and 16' down, even snagged a few right off the bottom.

      My second year owning a cabin on Pine Island and this lake is humbling. We did ok Memorial weekend catching many small ones. I did catch my best walleye on the lake with a 24” off the dock. Didn’t do well this last weekend as it sounds I shouldn’t have forgot the leeches in the fridge. I hope to have better luck this weekend. It is still tough to have to come home and go back to work.

      I have got to find out how to do this photo shop stuff. It would be fun pranking the relatives on FB. No really I did catch those walleyes Machu Picchu!  😂

      Got the boat upgraded with  different depth finders and trolling motor so I could chase walter and had to test it today. Hit a local lake with a friend and we got 7.  Pulled spinners and slow death with 1 oz bouncers. First time after eyes with this boat.

      How did the pizza taste? I'm thinking that might not be too bad!

      Bowkill78, Most everything is going some place on the Clearwater lake. Bass, pike and walleyes. It all depends on your choice of equipment and what you hope to try for.  Panfish and bass are on beds, trolling can also hookup with a pike or walleye.

      Give them all a shot you will be there for 5 days.  Get a lake map before you go and look it over. It makes it easier for the resort folks to point out spots instead of just saying over there. 😀
