I was out on bush lake on Monday 1/15 and there was still open water on the point and over the deep hole so be very careful.

We had a couple of tip ups out and didn't get any flags but a couple guys by the boat launch caught a couple small pike. I had a vexilar in the water while we were jigging and there were a few fish near the bottom but they were biting very lightly and we never did get anything on the ice. We probably would have done better if we would have stayed out longer but the 8 degree temp took its toll even though we were in a house.

Fished for Pike for about 3 hours yesterday afternoon.

Gorgeous day, but no fish. Ice was around 8" near the fishing pier on the point. Nobody was driving out yet thank goodness.

That area by the point still looks fresh. I'd steer clear of it, especially with all this snow sitting on it.

I drive bush to and from work. I see so few guys fishing it, which tells me something.

I drive by it often too, and I see the same homemade portable house all by his lonesome out there EVERY time. Either he knows something about the lake to make him get on it, or he knows about something in his house to make him get out of it and go fishing. wink.gif

I fished this lake a bunch of times last year. Only thing I ever caught was dink perch. However, Bob over at Moore's bait has a few that come in every week heading over there for pike. From what I gather, nothing huge, but fun. Personally, I got no confidence in the lake, but if somebody is out there slaying the fish Kudos to them. I tip my hat.

      Best to contact the DNR and let them access it to see if they think it's an issue before you end up with a fine.

      No, I went out the north access that you can't launch a boat on. 237th and Granda off of North Shore Trail. Very north end of Lake 1.

      I know there's no perfect boat for all rivers and lakes.  But, I've had aluminum jonboats for 60-years with no problems, so far.   My question is....  what type of aluminum boat do you like for most MN lakes?     I like  a 1648 boat, but undecided on the bow type....  Flat bottom, modified. V,  or Deep V?   What do you like?     Thanks for your help.

      Just a heads up that you cannot trap beavers on an WMA without a permit from the wildlife manager.

      The cost is for sure starting to get up there.  I've been wanting to take the kids but I just can't justify the cost for a weekend of fishing.  All of ice fishing trips end up being guys trips where we all split the costs, then it doesn't end up being that bad.  I'm guessing the bulk of the groups that outfitters service are groups of guys splitting the costs and that is partly what drives their pricing.  If they were pricing the houses and services with families of 4 in mind they likely wouldn't be able to charge nearly as much.    I can't fault the resorts as they are pricing based on what the majority of their clientele are.  Very few resorts are out there getting rich regardless.  I do however think hundreds of dollars a night for a single room shack with plywood bunk beds is a bit crazy when you really think about it. I pay less per night when staying in high end hotels in down town Minneapolis.

      Just booked our first LOTW winter trip this week. Interesting and funny😂 reading this thread. I thought the price for a long weekend was a bit steep, but like others have said, it's guys trip so we will be paying per person. I can fully understand the family angle.   Thanks for the laughs!

      Not sure, leech~~. But her health may have a play into it, as about the time he was rebuilding our place, he started just after Labor Day 2013, she had a major accident while riding 1 of her horses. The horse landed on her & crushed her hips, so bad they said she was lucky to be alive & were afraid she'd never walk again.  Her not being around to do his paperwork actually caused some issues with some of the other sub-contractors at out place. Many surgeries later ,with them having to come down to Mayo for the last, she seems to be able to get by.  I agree to in that I think the business would be easier to sell with the bar & restuarant too. Another issue is that all her good help has had to find different work & would be very hard to replace. Know there's quite a few people  that are  still hoping they rebuild.

      FYI May have been mentioned before but just in case, there is a ridge running from Gold Island towards Breezy Point in Frazer bay as well.

      Still waiting for the fire marshal to determine cause. They are working on a plan but can’t knock it down until the fire marshal lets them
