There has been an ice sighting in the area! Marion looked to be completely froze over and heard Hook and Cedar were also covered. I'm sure some others are looking promising as well, but not enough to risk it yet. Won't be long..........

Of course we need to use caution when going out on early Ice! I don't want to see any eager FM'ers on the news.

Be safe this Ice season,

Cedar will have a little help opening up with all of the duck hunters out there this weekend. Once they bust it up, won't be long before the north/west wind busts it up.

I would still like to get the boat out one more time this weekend.

Heye Friendly, are you atill around?

Ice fishing is a dangerous sport. It's great being the first one on and the last one off. However, people need to take responsibility for their own actions. We are also endowed with the right to drive, speak, and reproduce. We need to be responsible for ourselves. Know your lakes and if it's marginal, you best have a buddy with.

      Was a good winter for sure. Had a blast and learned a few things fishing with you, Chris.

      We drive by the stripping station on Cutfoot weekly & try to keep people up on that too. I think it may be a bit later here, will check it out tomorrow

      Have a couple spots that are 10' open, I live on north side of Pike Bay, large rocks along shoreline helps heat water. Hard to see the ice condition on the Bay as there is a lot of slush on top, once that melts and the warm sun hits the ice it will go quick. Our new Chesapeake pup discovered she lives on a lake yesterday.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff
