Hey fellow anglers,

I'm just looking for any information on ice thickness, northern, perch, walleyes, eelpout, heaves, and any travel conditions that anyone is willing to share. We will be heading up from Sun Prairie, WI and we're hoping there is still ice thick enough for pickup travel because we don't have any atv's or snowmobiles. We are staying at Becker's Resort on the West side February 6-11 and hope that travel is safe from where they have access south of their resort. Thanks in advance for any info that you share with me, [email protected]

Was on the ice Fri & Sat, went out of Nodak's and had decent fishing around Moses Bar in 29'. Perch were right on the bottom size around 10". Ice was about 22".

We were out of Dennys this weekend we went out to ten mile bar 20 inches of ice. We got just enough for a fish fry, 30 feet of water they really enjoyed crazey eyes and anything white with a green (Contact US Regarding This Word). Good luck. smirk.gif

Tank 1 almost forgot the walleys were biteing on moxies bar 19 feet of water starting at sunset for approximately 40 minutes of fast and furious feeding (fat heads). Try gold or silver colored sweedish pimples. I cant believe Im telling a Packer fan this. Good Luck. smile.gif

Which route are you taking from Sun Prairie ? We're leaving from Madison later in February and aren't sure the best way to get there. Thanks and good luck !!

Wisconsinguy,

We take 90/94 to Eau Claire 53 to Superior then 2 the rest of the way. It takes us around 7 hours from Madison. Hope this helps

Wisconsinguy,

I take the same route as Jay Man.

On another note we make sure to stop just outside Proctor, MN at Starvin Marvin's for a great breakfast/lunch on the way up and back. Awesome food and very reasonable price.

Thanks to everyone for all the Winnie information.

3 of us went out of the Birches Landing yesterday afternoon and fished by Moxey's Hole. We ended up catching 5 'eyes that all went back, 4 10" and 1 20", caught on a tip-up with a salted smelt no less. shocked.gif We had 1 northern about 3-4lbs and a dozen perch that were too small to keep. A gold jigging spoon and whole fathead worked best for me and has been my go to the last few trips out there. I've got a Dodge Dakota and had no trouble getting around. Sounds like the perch bite is best on the NW side of the lake. There's a couple pressure ridges out there so ask a resort or bait shop before you head out. I almost needed an extension on my auger.

      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

      Maybe the bamboozler will end up being like every fish story, some old timers holding their hands out as wide as possible to demonstrate to a youngster just how big it was....
