Ice is holding up good right now, there is snow on it yet even with the rain. There also is getting to be some water on the lakes. If the sun doesn't come out and it stays overcast there should be no problems with the ice. Might have to watch the landings a little bit. Yesterday I was on Duroy and there was 18 to 20 inches of good solid ice.

Can anybody tell me the ice conditions up there? Been looking forward to the winterfest ice fishing contest and not sure what to expect with the warm weather. Any info would be great. Thank you

Fished the hole on DuRoy today in 11 fow. Had tip downs set up and tried jigging. Picked up half dozen nice crappie on the tip downs. jigging was a bust. Seemed to be a slower bite all around. Did see a group fishing tight to the island pick up a nice pike on a flag. Hope to be back up after some walleye one of these nights

Got out a few times recently.  With the sun shining there were some nice gills up shallow, and a few smaller crappies.  The larger crappies were still hanging deeper at 8 feet or so.

Few smaller walleyes in with the deeper crappies.

2" white twister was pretty tough to beat.

Ok, I guess I didn't see the walleye part.

John not looking for an argument, but boatfever seamed to be asking about walleye regulations. I don't think any of the changes on the panfish limits on the 90 some lakes made it in to the regulations.

The regulations are still wrong unless there is a sticker on your page. The walleye regulations are there but they didn't print the panfish regulation that I stated below in the regulation. The DNR is handing stickers to License Agents in the Phillips area to up date the regs but that does no good for people that buy their licenses in other parts of the state.

It is in the regulations under Price County, Elk river. It reads as follows, Elk river upstream from Jobes dam to Musser Flowage dam, including Phillips chain of lakes: Duroy, Elk, Long, Wilson lakes, and connecting waters; Only three walleye of any length may be kept, but only one fish can be over 14". It's not as easy as it used to be, but if you look long enough it's usually in there. Smile

The DNR had a misprint in the book and missed the chain in the county section. They gave us stickers to put in our regulations at the shop and are posting the regulations at the boat ramps. Walleye is 3 with only one that may be over 14 and the panfish limit is 25 and only 10 of a species which is new for this season.
