The ice is thick , you can drive full size trucks out from the dam.

The fishing has been slow , maybe not fishing deep enough ?

It's our first time ice fishing. WHAT HAVE YOU HEARD ABOUT THE

FISHING? Maybe I'm doing somethings wrong.

Fishing has been pretty decent. I have done a few spur of the moment trips for the evening bite and have done reasonable well. I have been picking up my walleyes and some really nice jumbos in 8-10 feet of water around the various rock piles, islands, and points on the lake. I have also picked up a few crappies on the far basin by walking out via snowmobile trail.

Take Care and Good Luck Fishing

tearin' - do you live in duluth or the Falls? Seems like the bite would be better on Rainy? In any event, thanks for the info on Boulder. We have had limited success there this year. Hearing more about Fish Lake than Boulder at this time of year.

I am going to school down here at UMD, so yeah I am living in Duluth. I have been able to find some good fishing down here but you know there are advantages to fishing in your own back yard!! I will be heading back north in May and will be at One Stop for the summer. If you wanna fish Rainy come on up!!

      Supposedly this fish was snagged.  I am reading online at various sources that it may be prohibited from state record certification.

      I fished with a guide on the Detroit River two weeks ago who had the new Panoptix unit ($4000 to get setup).  Incredible what you could see as it is a live image.  Have to say it can frustrate the hell out of you sometime,  you see the fish just looking at your bait and then swimming away.  Very cool tech!  You could actually see the fins on the fish in the image and truly judge the size somewhat.

      7-10 days the lake will be ice free. Which will be almost right on average ice out (April 30). Pike bay is open up to Duffy island working up the bay. Paddled from the Pike river up the bay to the ice line tonight.

      Fake chirp as marketing gimmick.    They need something to convince folks to buy their unit and dump their unit from two years ago.    I am reserving judgement on the new higher frequency units.  "mega" and equiv.   Side scan actually seems like it could be useful.  Lots of stuff is changing these days in electronics.       I think what would be cool is an underwater drone with several transducers that communicates back to the boat wirelessly with sonar and video.....    Fresh water doesn't block radio waves too much so probably could use radio communication at least for a limited distance.       Some sort of modulated acoustic waves would work too.       Can't you just see, sitting in the boat, driving the mini-sub around looking  for fish, with sonar to help?   I bet the open water musky guys would pay big bucks for one....😂
