Ice is in great shape out to the Meth Hole, but I am a little concerned with the snow depth. It sounds like another 6 inches later this week. Right now I would say vehicle traffic would be fine but not sure if we get another 6. I have been working alot of hours but I will try to get out there the next few days and see what's going on

Thanks Icehawk for posting today about the ice thickness. I put a similar post in the Cool Cat's link, asking if you could let people know the conditions of the snow and ice.

Maybe a report should wait in case the next storm does hit?!?

Looking forward to hearing from you and utimately seeing you Saturday grin.gif

I was our there yesterday, and the snow is deep. mad.gif

The fishing was slow too, one 2# cat and four small crappies.

If we get another 6-12" or more, it will be a real mess out there.

Someone will need to plow a road for sure, or it will be limited to snowmobiles only.

Skeets- You are totally right. I just got back form the meth hole and she is a little tough out there. Put the chevy through a test that's for sure!! If we get any more snow it will definately be sleds only! frown.gif

Latest report for this area according to WJON radio is a Winter Storm Warnging. With predictions running from 8-16 inches of snow.

It doesn't look good for my group this weekend. We all sold our sleds and bought atvs. frown.gif

Please post if someone is planning on plowing a road.

Thanks

      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.
    • Borch
      Welcome to the forum.  Lots of good options already given.  Have some fun!
    • ozzie
      The fish are out there and they go hot and cold on the bite but they are catchable!  Anytime you can get the kids out fishing is worth it in my opinion!  Take them up and wet a line is about the only way you will find out if they can catch anything or not.  The main thing to look for before going to Red is the week leading up to the date you plan on fishing is to watch the wind speed and direction.  If blowing from the west for a few days the water stirs up and gets hard to fish.

      Welcome TheEyesofanAngler! A ton of good bass lakes around the area.  For numbers of 2 to 4 lb bass, the eastern Todd County lakes near Burtrum and NW Morrison county are hard to beat as well.

      Good job guys!

      Have only been out a couple of times now but did get a 5.5 lb walleye my first 10 minutes out in 16 feet of water. Lots of fish in the 16-20 feet range. No jumping in the boat but catching fish on the mid lake areas. I'll be darned if I'll sit under a bridge with other boats when you can catch fish out on the lake without others boaters around.

      Any reports from Buffalo?  I would imagine that they are doing OK right out in front of the marina/beach.  Anybody?
    • DonkeyHodey
      agree with gimruis.  look to the river. Your chances of catching a 3# bass or better are exponentially better on the river.  (There's a reason SC/mississippi was chosen for the Gov's opener last year--the Mississippi around here is really a world class smallmouth fishery.)  (most river rats will tell you that you can essentially catch smallies any time of year and often as by-catch while targeting other species.)  Below the SC dam is pretty much catch and release only (all 12-20 inchers must be released) but it's quite loaded with big smallies! (and lots of good shore areas on public land)  Just be prepared to lose a few lures on snags... Frankly, If you want to stick to lakes, I think you can pretty much pick a lake in a 30 mile radius...--most produce bass in good quantity, it's just years may vary in terms of sizes.  Clearwater is good.  Consider Bass lake adjacent to it.  (...it's not just a clever name.)

      Haha!  Based on our conversation at the truck I’m going to edit that comment a teeny bit!  Cuz I know both of us had a workout.  I was still sore yesterday but it was a good sore. 😎
    • gimruis
      I like Clearwater too.  I haven't fished in in a couple years now but I used to and we caught a lot of fish out there.  The one negative was all the competition - there seemed to be a tournament almost every weekend. Another overlooked place to target smallmouth: RIVERS.  The Sauk River and the Mississippi between St Cloud and Elk River is plum full of bass and receives minimal fishing pressure (its just my opinion but rivers in general are very under fished here in MN).
