The fishing has been so/so. They are getting a few walleyes and the occasional flurry of crappie activity. No real hot bite going on yet.

There are still some areas of open water that have been moving aroung due to the wind and shifting ice.

Two pickups went down in the last week. One near Boyds landing and one over by Engebretsons(sp).

the state park landing doesn't seem to get used much. I myself haven't heard of anybody using that landing so far.

There are a couple of houses in that area. Everybody seems to be scattered this year probably because of iffy ice.

WALLEYEDUDE2001

As far as the south end, a couple of vehicles were out last week end but they drove out of the pit. The access at the old state park is inacessible (big heave right in front) which was open as recently as a week & a half ago. Fishing was tough last weekend with the cold & wind. Did I mention the wind. Up by the hunting shack (Wally's) by Milan Beach, three guys on Sunday were trying to pull a couple of houses off with cables. Seems someone was walking by one of the houses & went in up to the armpits. The lake opened up by Milan beach to the south big time from the wind. I'm sure is got some ice now. Use caution.

There are more & more houses going in by the "clay banks" & north of Janes out in the middle but again ice varies.

The north end was decent a week ago but they have scattered. The full moon coming up may chane the fising luck but the cold is also supposed to set in so we'll see. Am heading out that way today (wed.) to fish the weekend.

Good luck.

Fished it hard this weekend and not a whole lot to show from it.. Couple eyes and a few perch, I'd never complain about sitting in a house out on LQP though! I love it out there!

I fish the puddle 5 -7 times a week. Once the extreme cold has set in the crappie bite has been real scattered. If you do a little work you should be able to get on top of a hard hittin school. Best advice I could give would be to setup in the house cities. Either a little shallower or deeper then every body else is where i've had the best luck.

I've been catching walleyes real shallow in several different areas of the lake. The action is fast and furious if you can find a shallow spot where they are feeding on bait that doesn't have fins or gills. Seek and ye shall find.

      That's doubtful with the warm forecast.

      Just learned that someone broke through on Reno last night. He was pulling his 7'x12' fish house with his ATV and dropped the back of his fish house through on 3" out in the middle of the lake. Fortunately, nobody was hurt and he was able to somehow get it retrieved this morning. I guess they had to go over 100' from the front of the ATV to find 10" of ice.

      Seeing a lot of greenheads and swans around the metro.  It seems every bit of open water is packed.  I took advantage of some opportunities to film some trumpeters and put a little holiday cheer to it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZQu99MI1Y6Y

      I found a old trolling motor at a garage sale for like $5-10 bucks, cut the head and motor off of it and used the pole and bracket to clamp on the ducer on my last canoe.

      It should be able to I can shoot through my kayak if I wanted. Canoe should be the same. There great units. Good price and a solid fish finder

      I just saw this online.  What would be the best way to mount the transducer?  Could it shoot through the floor of the canoe?   Humminbird® PiranhaMax™ 4 Sonar PT Portable tranducer, case, rechargeable battery and charger Tilt-mount base makes the screen easy to view 256-color 4.3" 480 x 272 screen DualBeam explores down to 600 ft. 2,400-watt peak-to-peak power output Featuring a portable transducer, portable case, rechargeable battery and a wall charger, Humminbird's PiranhaMax 4 Sonar with PT delivers a compact package for on-the-go fishing adventures.

      Anybody know anything about this lake? Just north of Ely.
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Welcome Rick! I use a Humminbird piranha max 4 (non DI). I mounted it in a vexilar Genz case and I use the genz soft pack on it to help protect the screen from scratches. I used it all last summer in the kayak and it worked PERFECT. I use the humminbird suction cup mount and it works well. Even used it on a smaller aluminum boat and it never came off even on plane. This setup to me is ideal for anyway wanting a cheaper rig that works very well IMO.
    • Rick Bancroft
      I want to set up the canoe with a portable transducer so that it can be used in the boundary waters and portaged, etc.  Anyone have ideas on the set-up and what sonar would be a good choice?   I probably don't want too hi-tech so I can conserve battery life.

      Going out in 2 hours! And Sat. too for half a day....
