Does anybody have a report for the ice on Cross Lake in Pine City?? I'm wondering how the ice is coming along over there.

Guessing the ice conditions are similar to Pokegama's, I would wait until next weekend. You could try calling the bait shop in Pine City. I believe it's called Cedar Creek Outfitters. Sorry, I don't have the number handy right now.

Thanks for the tip. Not planning on heading over there in the near future, I just had success with some nice crappies there last year and was wondering how things were coming along.

Was shoppin around at cedar creek outfitters in pine city and the man workin there told me someone pulled their shack out onto crosslake with a car.
A lot of people out there on the ice fishin.
Also, I counted 15 portables on the ice straight out from the public access on west Rush. Too windy for me.
Drove thru Muffie's parkin lot on Pokegama, seen one small homemade portable but nothing else.
Mabey someone can give us a report ??

My Dad said the north end of Cross was wide open as of a week ago. Haven't heard anything lately though.

Cross lake had around 10-20 people on it last Saturday. Don't know how much ice there was then, but I saw ATV's and I'm sure the ice will be plenty good by this weekend!!

Been out on Pokegama quite a bit lately about 9.5 to 10 inches of ice. Been takin the wheler out lately and the fish are biting. Key is to find 17 feet on the south side of the island. They were a little finacy today but stilll managed some slabs.

Cross has a good 8 to 10 inches of ice on Friday. There were some cowboys testing the strength of it with their full size trucks. OK, probably will get away with it, just not for me. But, driving 50 miles an hour across it doesn't seem like a real smart idea.

Caught about 50 crappies ranging from 2 ounces to 11 ounces (most were about 6 ounces). Everyone else I talked to caught zippo. This kind of puzzled me because every hole I punched produced at least a couple fish. Oh well, I guess I had a hot hand or something.

And, there were a ton of people out there. So, if you don't mind a crowd, give it a whirl.

Thanks for the reply. Had some success out there last year with the crappies and I hope I can get into some nice ones again this year.

Ray, which part of the lake were you fishing? I only fished around 2 hours and caught a bunch of crappies and 2 eyes. Heard fishing was slow, which would explain all the houses but no one fishing in them.

      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. 😀
