If the wind is out of the north, we did real well just going out of that public access east of garrison "wealth-something-or-other" we went out just past the first drop into 20-25' and caught fish everywhere drifting with 6 foot snells and leaches right off the bottom. After 8 at night we did better in shallower water 8-12' off the rocks closer to garrison. We had a 16' bass boat with a 35 merc and had no problems... any size boat would have been fine... but that was sunday evening and the wind was relatively light.

Thanks for the info.i've been out about 5 times and have done really good every time but i was fishing shallow when most of the other boats were fishing deep 20'-25'.Most of the fish that we hav gotten have been in between 18'-11' of water and we have even picked up a few 28" fish but most of them seem to be between 19"-25" rang which to me is fine because i relase 85-95% of my fish.

The spot analyzer mentioned is as good of spot as any for a small boat. It is fairly protected from all sides, except the South. You will get fish there are and there will be other boats in the area.

That is good you release 85-95% of your fish because on Mille Lacs you have to!! grin.gif

      Update on driving on Bald Eagle anybody

      I recently met up with my buddy Al to check out a small lake that I had never fished before (Al had only open water fished it). We didn't get to the lake until after sundown and we immediately started drilling holes looking for fish. It didn't take us too long to find an area that the fish were frequenting. We caught a couple fish and set up the flipover. We wound up getting into some nice Crappies and to our surprise some really nice Sunfish. I would really like to get back to this lake soon to explore some new areas and learn it a bit more as it definitely has quality fish!

      Thanks for the report.  I live close so I like to see how things are doing on Medicine.  Only time out was with the little one, so dad didn't get much fishing done.  Will be looking to drive out there now that we have this cold snap coming to make some more ice.

      I searched the forum for anything new regarding flotation suits and I didn't see anything since about 2015.  So.... If a guy were to buy a suit with flotation, which one and why?  Let's assume that the company and their lawyers all did their homework and they will save a life just the same.  I'm talking about comfort / mobility / sizing, etc.  I went to the Big C tonight to try some on and they were really picked over.  The only thing I found in my size was the Icearmor Rise jacket, but no bibs and they were not on any kind of sale.  Icearmor has a promo to get a free pair of boots if you buy a whole suit, which I plan to resell and cover some of my cost so that is of interest to me, but I can't mix and match between stores to get the best deal.   So - fire away.  What do you have and why do you like or dislike it?

      Normally I could give you a good report by this time but unfortunately, have not been out there yet. I plan to be in that area this weekend. If I do get that far I will check it out and report.

      Thx for the report. Things were pretty bad when we were there two weeks ago. Wondering what to expect for this weekend. Sounds like it’s a little better, but not much.

      I have been sledding Pike Bay morning and night most every single day since Thanksgiving. Things have improved a little bit. There is still areas that are pretty bad though. Some of the slush has consumed all the snow and worked it's way to the top and that stuff is setting up nicely now. I think with a good week of this weather pattern that's settling in conditions will only improve. Maybe not perfect but better than 2 weeks ago. I've got -10.6°F right now on the thermometer so we aren't losing any snow or ice here on Big V!
