MissMinnowHead and I were part of a large group out of Sportsman's on Saturday, fished from 11 am to 5 pm. The group had a poor to no bite in less than 20 feet of water and better in deeper water. We were bombed out to a deeper house by luck North of Pine Island and caught 19 in 29 FOW. Kept 10 wall/saug mix in 14-16" range, nothing larger. Smallest were 11". Jigging with full minnows or just heads and rattle reels with a lively minnow and red treble hook all worked well. Our thanks to Sportsman's Lodge for their kind efforts. Grumpy

Our prayers go out to the families of Melissa and Zeth. Heart breaking news.

Miss Minnow Head and I were set up in 9 fow, in front of Morts around 4:30 this afternoon. At 5 the switch turned on and for one hour the walleyes were in attack mode! Glow red flyers with small or large full golden shiners. I hope everyone else had the same experience. Back at home, fish are cleaned, martinis in hand, watching BSU Beavers hockey, tie game. Fun day. Grumpy.

Used Bear Paw the day after Christmas this year. We usually are a self-supported crew, but had a big group so we thought we would try an outfitter. They were on time, condition of houses was very good and the minnows were happy. I highly recommend them. MMH

We stopped at URL on our way back from LOW yesterday morning. We were 10 miles out. Finished fishing at 6 pm. We were passed a few times driving off at 15 mph, but it was the tandem house pulled by the one ton flying by us that amazed me. Show a little respect for the ice!

As usual,
Grumpy

There is a cold front coming in Friday. It may be well worth the time to fish Friday. MMH

Thanks for the comments, the white Tundra and I will stick to 10-15 mph unless following a guide who makes his or her living on the ice.

Speed on Ice Considerations

We are all itching to have easy access to the lake. With some accesses allowing truck traffic and others not, I started thinking about the fatigue that traffic puts on the ice cover. An increase in weight will cause increased ice deflection and an increase in speed will cause a hydrodynamic wave to form. We all see this as the water in our columns rise and fall as vehicles pass. I have always been a believer in 15 mph. "Winter Wise: Travel and Survival in Ice and Snow" by Monty Alford says that for a 6000 lb vehicle (light truck and light wheel house) on 2 feet of solid ice the GREATEST ice deflection (1/4") occurs at 16 mph. My idea of 15 mph is the WORST speed for this combination! When we do have truck and wheel house access what speeds should we be using? Thoughts?

Grumpy and I fished TRL yesterday. Walked out about 200' to19 fow, only 10" of ice. Still spooky. We won't talk about the fishing, that was even thinner! Any other ice condition reports? MMH

Re: camera use. The water has a strong tannin stain due to its drainage area. Cameras will work but you just need to close the distance. We fished out of Hillman's on Friday and the water seemed darker than usual. Not sure if it changes much year to year or if it's that we are not looking down a 3 foot tube of ice! Enjoy that fish dinner! MMH
