Are all of the accesses still open, Adrian's, Morris Point, Zippel Bay? Heading up tomorrow. Also, anyone got a current fishing report, best area, depth? Thanks.

All still open.

I fished Morris last weekend in 28' and did just fine. I really don't think there is a "Majic" depth right now. Sounds like that 18-12' range over Pine is good during the two prime times (early and late). We caught a nice mixed bag of walleye's, saugers, perch, and tulibee's out deeper.

Looks like a beautiful weekend, so there should be no excuse for not trying some different depths.

Was just up at Zipple Bay Resort, Nick has roads still marked, but LOTZA water on the ice on Wednesday of this week when we were there. When driving out to house, we turned around & headed back cuz water was flowing so much & water was on ice all the way to shore. Still 3 feet of ice or so on the lake, but belts on my Jeep sure made a FUSS! Must say tho, fishing was GREAT! Just my Mom & I went for a one-day trip, and I weighed in a 8lb Walleye, over 29.5" long!! Limited out in 26 feet of water, with 8 walleyes for us, and 4 sauger to add to the pot!! Used a gold jig the whole day, nothing else. Had a great time, but next year will go EARLIER in the year, cuz the water freaked us out!! Hope you make it there & good luck fishing!!

      I agree with the others Tommy! I always enjoy your bits of wisdom and humor! Cliff

      They are all coming in from the main lake. Cliff

      We used to camp on hinsdale all the time. There is one spot on the south shore closer to the east end we stayed almost every time. It's got a big rock outcrop on a small point that slopes down to the water. The picnic table and fire ring are in the open up top. Wide open space and a good breeze will keep the bugs off you. Tent site is fairly hidden. That's the best spot we ever found. Only downside is boat parking. I remember tying up on a log off the the side so probably the same site mentioned earlier.  We stayed there a ton when I was younger and never had any bear encounters, but the bear boxes are there for a reason!

      I always wondered,  are the walleyes coming over the dam?   or are they swimming in from Pike?

      Why delete your post?  I actually enjoyed reading that story. Seeing stories like yours is half the reason I like checking out this site (I like to check out all the different lake boards on fishingminnesota).

      Hey, we need a little color and humor and Musky Tom does it best.

      Good info to me even. Cliff you can delete my story n junk. Most people don’t know me round here anymore n for sure the humor of life is of no interest. Under stand only want the facts mama. Just the facts. 😎 I endeavor to persevere.  Beef!

      The ice on the Pike River between the dam and the lake is opening up fast! Should be wide open in a couple of days at the present rate of melt! The DNR will be trapping walleyes soon!!!  The walleyes are already starting to move in! Pike Bay ice is  also starting to deteriorate quickly! Finally starting to look like we may get some open water for the fishing opener! Cliff

      These aren't campsites to bring your Ranger fiberglass or decked-out Lund into. They're better fitted for smaller 14-16 ft alum boats, something you can drag on shore. Though i'm sure you can figure out how to secure something bigger. Cliff is right, most have sandy/pebble shorelines to pull a smaller boat onto. Almost all of them are well-protected from the prevailing WSW wind. You're gonna get wakes rolling into shore from passing boats, though, as it's a pretty well traveled section of the lake.

      I camped at a couple sites a few years ago.  no docks, but most of the sites had a half way decent place to put the boat in.  one had a decent log to tie to.  another I threw a couple anchors out back and was able to tie off to a couple trees to keep the boat close yet off the rocks.
