I highly doubt that! Since we just came off the ice last sunday with a 3/4 ton chevy with a duramax. My other buddy has been up there all week driving around with a snowmobile trailer and a suburban. Ice is never safe but you can make your own call. As far as the fishing picking up well its slow but if you stick to it you will catch quality fish.

I called long point and they said the ice was good,they said it was the river that was iffy, I will have to tell the guys I'm going to fish at long point the rummors are not true!! they said the ice was 17 to 18 inches thats good enough for me !! good luck to everyone!!!

I think they had single digit low temps at LOW the last couple of days too... so if anything, they're probably making ice...

We were fishing west and in 24' of water. We fished for 2 1/2 days and kept about 35 fish ranging from 14 to 19 inches. We released about 5-6 small ones. The lucky lures were a dark red northland forage minnow and anything blue. The deadstick provided almost all the fish. Very fustrating on the marcum to pull fish up and they just would not hit it. It is nothing like years past but "shut-up and fish" method was put into place for us and it paid off.

This ice thing is a huge rummor and Joyce and the boys do not need another strike against them. It is tough anuff with the whole "cloudy water thing" going on. There is about half the amount of houses out there and according to Dan the creel man we were doing as good or better than his whole trip east of long point on Saturday.

any questions

      Going up to visit family at Mille lacs 4th of July weekend. Given the current fishing restrictions and the fact that I don’t have a boat, does anyone know any good shore/kayak fishing lakes in the Mille lacs area?

      Spent yesterday afternoon wading the upper croix. Water actually seemed a little low. There was lots of floating grass, so my traditional approach of using a fire tiger jointed rapala was unusable. Tried a whopper plopper for a bit, which avoided floating grass better, but I just didn’t have confidence in using it. So since it seemed like the crayfish outnumbered the rocks, I decided to use a weightless Texas rigged plastic craw. Caught 3 smallies, and a pike.

      Here's the actual water level as of Saturday, 6-25. It has dropped some but still is 4 feet above the rule curve. This is updated daily; it's just too early in the day for Sunday's data to be posted. You can check it yourself here: http://www.lwcb.ca/waterflowdata.html

      @chaffmj, never mind.  I decided to take a cruise on up there today.  Had a couple popple tops in the driveway but nothing I couldn’t clear.  Nice to see the area again.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?

      Drove through Annandale last Tuesday and was really bummed to still only see the old cement slab at Little Jim's. Hope they can get it built-back-better! 🙂

      I heard recently the water level had gone down some. Sound like folks are re really dealing with a mess.    Fishing pictures look like a good year in that regard.   Hope the property loss isn't terrible but seems bad.   Bill

      Yesterday was a grind to find bigger fish but we landed a few. Only 3 fish overall but they were all nice fish, all C&R. I do believe the sunfish are out of the shallows besides small ones. Thursday I took the nephews out and didn't see any on beds.

      Glad you keep coming back, Mark. And glad you still know the way to catch a slew of walleyes. I wish i could’ve learned more while you were here. But I appreciate all the information you provide on what worked for you.  Strange year. We just got part of our dock in and our boat. I fished a couple hours this morning for the first time on a Frazer hump you know and caught ten under 12” and one keeper which I released… a nice 26+“. I’m hoping more to come soon. I hope all is well with you, Dick
