Was out today from 4-7pm and never had a bite. Ice was good on the wisc. side, 12" and a few full size trucks running along the shorline. HTB

Just out of curiosity- do you guys always fish the deeper holes out there? I haven't fished it for some time now, probably 8 years, but I used to fish the hell out of it. I noticed that when nothing was going on out in the deep stuff, I would do pretty good shallower. Maybe not so much the crappies, but walleye, sauger, and smallies and an occasional northern. I would just work some of the spots I would find them in during the summer, and these are spots that usually nobody hits, typically "drive by" spots. I don't know if a guy is able to get to where the pylons are north of the power plant, but sometimes, those backwater areas around there can produce. I sure miss fishing that whole area.

I usually fish deep like in 40 ft or deeper. This year does suck and the ice is just starting to get thicker so there are not a lot of brave souls driving everythere yet. grin.gif

Was out there this morning with only a few small crappies, nothing to brag about. Slow and boring

TRZ, long time,no see. I have to agree with you.I think it was three winters ago when we would fish down there in different places and do pretty well.The year after that I gave up after a few trips and the same with the next year.It was nice and close and if the fishing was good,so much the better.But now I don't hesitate to drive a ways to put some fish on the ice.Keep posting.

TRZ, yeah I'm still here dude.Just don't hit the river anymore.I'm sure it still has it's days,but it's nothing like it was a few years back.I even gave it a shot this year twice,earlier in the year.But those two trips bagged me one 10" crappie.I don't know what happened down there.By coincidence,we bought a cabin NE of Siren,WI. in the fall of 2004.I've been fishing the lakes up there now.Also Big Round Lake,north of Amery.Say "Hi" to Chris for me.Talk to you later.

      There’s a lot of nice lakes around garrison. But I second leech you can’t go wrong with Winnie, setup on the mid lake humps. Or leech and try and find the eyes.

      Looking to try fishing crystal and have never ice fished it before. Any suggestions on what to try if I am going for crappies.

      I picked up a used 2013 Forest River True North 20x8 ice house. I got a decent deal on it but the front jack is having problems. When I try to raise up the tongue I get some loud clicking sounds from the jack and it's not raising. I'm prepared to just buy a whole new jack for it since I assume the internals are stripped but has anyone else a similar problem? This jack is rated for 3500lbs and the tongue weight is well under 1000lbs so I'm pretty disappointed with it. For right now I'm just using my car jack. Maybe I'll need it for the rear jacks.....

      Been a slow start to my season but finally found few decent crappies.They were in 23ft off structure. Tungsten jig tipped with white plastic did the trick to bring them topside. Can't beat plastics, caught tons of fish on just one. You know its on and doesn't fall off. Got some cool footage of the flasher in this video too.

      Got a pickup, wheel house, ATV and portable. Been to (not all this year) Lake of the Woods, Upper Red, and Mill Lacs. Any recommendations for something new? Otherwise may try to get to know the lakes near Garrison.

      5 sauger Saturday, 4 sauger and 3 pout Sunday out of Adrian’s. Started in deeper water, east of the crowd on Saturday. Sunday I moved around a bit, even drove the atv west of the crowd, 34 fow, with no luck. Spent the afternoon and evening in 25 fow near pine Island which was the only place I caught fish Sunday. Resort houses where mostly in 34 fow. Back home now.

      Hello from the NW Angle! Fishing remains consistently strong on the Minnesota side this week. Many species are quick to bite leaving anglers with a very mixed bag at the end of the day. We saw multiple 40+ inch Northern, many Perch, even a Lake Trout among an already strong Walleye bite. 22-24 ft on gravel bottom surrounded by mud has been our best spots. Be sure to charge up any Glow tackle in use, with the increasing snow cover, glow or lighted lures have been hot. Pink/white and gold are also very effective on sunny days. The Canadian bite just keeps getting better! Crappies can be found in 30 foot holes while 22-26 ft flats on break lines have been hot for a Sauger/Walleye mix. Remember to stick to well-traveled trails as most have not been staked/marked as of yet. Until next week!

      Not sure about the resort... But I know Adrians road is like 11 miles out past pine Island and they were plowing farther. Guy from my work was 9 miles out last weekend and did good on 14 inch sauger with some walleye mixed in.  He said there is 24 inches of ice.   I would say to try and get away from the groups.  Good luck fishing.

      Am heading up this weekend... Not sure where we going out of... But like to be away from the groups also. I usually go out of hunters but they are having road issues again. I am sure it will be resolved by Friday.
