Went up on Saturday 12/23. found good 8-9" in all the spots we fished. Good clear ice under the snow. The snow was nice made for better footing for sure. Fishing.....very slow. Some perch during the day, a couple of crappies and done small eye. A lot of lookers and chasers but no takers. It was a beautiful day to be out though. Several houses over on the hump toward HWY 65 access. Headed to LOW on 12/26 so probably won't be back till New Years Eve, most likely stay over that night. Hope you have a Merry Christmas. Bill

Thanks for the update. Good to know there's fishable ice.

Hopefully we'll get a cold snap so they can hold the annual contest.

Ron the contest is on the 20th of January. It will be held on the east side of the lake near the Hwy 65 access. For more info you can contact Bowes Landing or the Crows Nest. I believe tickets are available either place or on the ice. They sent mine through the mail as a member of the Sportsman Club. Not sure if I will be there or not, possible trip back to LOW. Bill

Was up this past weekend, 9" of ice, the top 1" to 2" is frozen slush. Cold temps in the forecast for making more ice.

Dave, I was there last weekend and the ice was very good. Measured 10-10 1/2" where I was. The slush on top had frozen solid and allowed for some easy scouting by putting some water on the ice and shooting the vexi right through it. Released lots of you know whats and several small eyes. Bill

Dave: Were you over my way at all when you were up? I fished Sat night and Sunday morning. If you see my cabin light or dock light on I am there. Blue Clam Voyegeur and Red Polaris Explorer 500, usually off the point toward Big Island. If you are over that way knock on the door of the fish house LOL. Headed for LOW on Monday, so not sure if I'll be back up on the 20th or maybe not till the 27th. Bill

Bill, I didn't see your last post 'till now. I don't have a wheeler or sled so I haven't been over your way. I've been on foot, hasn't been safe to drive out yet. I'm usually fishing out front of my place, blue clam jr.

I'll be at the contest, blue/fur bommer hat, any FM'ers there say hi. Dave

Dave: Just back from LOW. Haven't been up in a couple of weeks. Headed up tomorrow morning to hook up with Zaudtke Electric about moving my electric meter. Going to expand the entryway at the cabin and need to have him move the power. Don't think I'm going to fish though. Can't make it up on Saturday, but I already bought my tickets so maybe I'll win something LOL. Hope to come up next Friday for the day and chase the you know whats..... Good luck Saturday. Bill

Bill, I caught 3 perch during the contest but not big enough to be money fish. First place was a 6-1/8 oz. perch.

Lots of perch caught at the contest and a few small walleyes. Ice was 14" to 15", full size trucks out there (I didn't drive on the ice though). I see a "village" has appeared in the area you fish. Dave

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

      Awesome fish. Still some freak crappies in the vermillion river, but don't know if 5 lbs has been approached since.  Not world record news but North Dakota had a state record walleye caught recently. 15lb 13oz. Broke record that stood since 1959. Still a few pounds off Minnesota record 😏

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      This Freak?   Jam Ferg poses with his fish after TWRA officials certified its weight.

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"
