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.

      Thanks @knoppers.   I’m about to head over to that general area.  Makes me wonder if I should load the wheeler.

      What length of the HT BLUES are you looking for? I've seen some 24" @ Walmart stores. Some in the rod/reel combos n some just the rod itself. I got my 30" frm Frankie's bait in Chisago so if you're in that area you can check it out or give them a call. I remember seeing some @ Blue Ribbon baits in Maplewood also. You can also give them a call. I hope this helps.

      Fish went deeper durring the day today. Not easy cracking the code this year

      I shoot through the bottom..  Use plumbers putty to make a ring and use some to keep the diversity in place.   I just add enough water to make a good conductor.  Works great.  No worries about snagging the ducer outside the boat.  As for finders I have an old fish eagle, buddy just picked up a battery operated color unit from amazon says it worked good.
