Camoman and I decided to head over to French on saturday afternoon for a change of scenary. Got to Shieldsville to pick up bait and the guy there told us that people were hammering large pannies on the south shore of Mazaska.

Needless to say our plans of going to French changed and we figured might as well try it out on Mazaska. Well, we fished from about 5' to 20' in about 6 or 7 different spots and caught one 8" walleye and 3 4" bluegills. We were marking fish all over but couldnt get them to bite on pastic, waxies, or minnows. Pretty slow afternoon.

Fished from about 3-6pm. THere was a solid good 18" of ice everywhere. We took the 4-wheeler out but truck travel I think would be fine. There was one car out near us driving around no problem.

This might have been the last trip for on the ice but at least we got out one more time...

Nice to see the Mazaska Curse is still on...that lake is one of the reasons I've been fishing on Duck and Washington this past winter. I'm tired of looking at lines on the FL-8 and wondering what I was doing wrong.

I gave it a try about ten days ago instead of driving west. Three sunfish--one keeper and two that were a little bigger than a silver dollar--after seeing fish for two hours. I'm beginning to believe that a lot of those marks a recent year class fish.

Last summer I was there a few times and I saw massive clouds of minnows. I have fished that lake all my life and have never seen anything like it. I'm no expert, but I used it as an excuse for catching nothing that day grin.gif

Needless to say, our group of guys will not be returning there for a while - we have been skunked 3 times this year and have fished in different spots with no luck. We will put it on the calender for 2008 and hopefully they will have grown a little.

Went out for about 5 hours on Sunday afternoon. Moved all around the south side of the lake. Only caught one small Sunny and one small Crappie. Marked lots and threw everything I had at them but no response. Have caught nice fish there in the past. But recently have had poor luck to say the least.

      I agree I have not heard much on here about the area.  Headed to shields on Saturday,  hope it pans out.

      I have a Striker Hardwater and the Wife has the Clam Rise suit. Both are great and we chose them based on how they fit, each body is different and you will find different brands and even product lines within a brand will fit different. I would try stopping by Thorne Bros and see what they have in stock to try on, they might have more upstairs if you dont see your size.  Float suits dont go on sale much other than the Blaine Ice show, St Paul Ice show, Black Friday and then after the season.

      This are premium Rods from Alpha Angler. This company is the rod sponsor for 2017 Bassmaster Angler of the Year Brandon Palaniuk. The Rebound: is a glass cranking rod. Best I've ever used. Fantastic feel. The Zilla: is a a perfect all around Rod. I primarily used it for pitching jigs. I've owned these rods for less than a year they were purchased in spring 2018. I just have way more tackle rods reels etc. Than I have room for. Rods new retail together are $475 I'm selling them as a package for $320. Or individually for $175 each.  I'm in the north metro area. And am willing to drive a reasonable distance if need be. Feel free to make an offer but a serious ones only. Also I have photos of the Rods if youd like just email me and I'll send then to you. Let me know!  Email me at  [email protected]

      I posted some pic's of the heaves on above Fishing Reports info post.   Pretty interesting if you never seen anything like that.   CRUNKY CRUNCHY sounds of ice on rocks last night as trucks drive on an off.....always fun.   T

      Went out just to check ice depth today, measured 13.5" on lake one a couple hundred yards out from the public access in town.  No snow left, very slick, and lots of heave action on a majority of the shoreline.
