Crappies are going good in Black Bay! Walleyes will be shallow and relating to newly emerging weed growth in 2 to 5 feet of water. Good Luck!

Most aren't talking. Thank goodness. No fishery can take that kind of killing. If you eliminate the big bulls the whole population may crash and be ruined forever....but hey...you got yours right? Maybe the state should consider more restrictive regs on panfish. Might be what it takes to save these fish. I might go so far as to say that a lot of guys catch more 28" walleyes than they do 10" bluegills... Which one needs to be protected?

As of yesterday they were still under 20+ inches of quality ice. Nothing over 2lbs, but many over 1.70 pounds. I am going out on a limb and saying...steady as she goes for the next few weeks. Turns out you don't need to be on the border to find slabs.

Maybe they don't feel you can get across the crack out in front? Not sure. But if you can it's smooth sailing to the north. It's possible that heave has shifted.

Going out of Big Rock would be just fine. Not sure if they let random public traffic out however.

Was up yesterday. Tried stoney point. The sand landing had a ridge about a block out. No tracks trying to go out. The boat landing looks like the pic. There were ATV tracks going out and following the ridge toward the point. Did not see ATV on the ice. There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there. We went out of Pine Point for something to do. We were after Tullies and guy at the landing said not yet Ice conditions could not be better. No slush and no water on the ice. Could drive any where. The problem is a pressure ridge prevents access to the trench. Wish I had ice cleats with. So as of now Stoney Point is not looking good


You can get there if access at Horseshoe Bay and head North...you will be east of the ridges all the way.

Drag_on,

Hopefully someone else will post an update for you. I can tell you that the access area there has been treacherous all winter. Some days you can drive a truck out and other days it looks like you can't even walk out. I have not been there in a week or so and it changes almost daily. I would find a different access point or live with the scene when you arrive. A wheeler won't help you if that breaker is pushed up or moving.

Bigfatber,

Everybody can have a different opinion and that's ok! I look at it this way. Number one...it's not a good luck story. I bust my tail when it's 40 below zero and I don't want to go fishing, but I go. I break my snowmachines...I break my augers, and I break my back some days. Ice fishing in remote areas is tough on gear and tough on equipment. Does that entitle me to some greedy attitude when I zero in on something special...hell no. All I am saying is that I pay my dues and I like to share. I get more satisfaction from watching a customer catch a huge fish than if I caught it. These fish are very special fish in the north country...in my humble opinion. If I gave the exact depth, the exact bait, the exact weather conditions these fish would be decimated in two winters time. They spend the winter in these areas...year after year. That's why they are vulnerable. I believe, that once these huge fish have been removed from an area it takes an awfully long time for them to return...if they EVER do. Sorry for the blackouts, but if you can recognize where I was by looking at the photos you have either been there before, with Woody or myself, or you heard about it through a handful of people that know where I've been. And that's ok...go get em! I am certainly not claiming these fish or locations anymore than anyone else should. In fact, Woody and I shot an In Fish show with Jeff Simpson on these very fish. Some of the things that make their location unique might be one of the last frontiers in crappie location on Canadian shield lakes. Should people be able to hop on the computer and learn everything in an hour that cost us hundreds and hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars in expense? All to zero in on some of the largest and perhaps the last consistently large crappies left in our state? I have gone out of my way to give these fish a break in being very selective on who goes and when they go...not out of greed, but out of respect for this pattern. It's just fishing after all. We get too whipped up about stuff, but I sure would like to know these fish might be available for my grandkids someday. Big crappies will never be "fished out" of Rainy. It's a huge complex body of water, but history has proven certain areas can be hammered into oblivion. You know this I am sure if you can tell where I have been by photos. Anyway, I am not trying to be confrontational, I just disagree. What's wrong with having a few secrets in the fishing world anymore?? Go out and earn your own secrets. I will help any way that I can, but I won't draw a map.

Just got off the ice myself for a short break. Not much water on the ice. When the water is flowing down the holes that's a good sign from where I come from. Once the lake "pops" as I would call it the ice is high and dry. We are on our way to that point as I type this. The ice is fine today. Cant say for the next couple days but I suspect it will be fine. No snow left in Walker Bay and minimal water. The access areas may get bad but as of now they are no problem. Ice seems to be about 24+ inches and very little soft stuff on top. The next couple hours might soften up the top couple inches but that's about it. No worries right now. Wheeler travel would be fine too but I have been driving the truck.

Oh...fishing for perch is good and will likely get better!

It's all right Bigfatber. I guess I should know better. After one of the local seagulls started following my tracks a couple winters ago the writing is on the wall. These areas will get punished soon enough. Go get yours before it's over. I just cannot post the stuff. Good luck!
