Was just out there, and Butternut will be fishable tomorrow... May have to dodge a few ice chunks; but this wind will take a lot of it...
Butternut Lake, Price County
As of this morning, the north end was open to approximately Cain's point. The rest of the lake was ice covered and black. There was a lot of water along the shorelines. It wouldn't surprise me if it opens up today, especially if it get windy.
MOON PHASE (19%)
Fished in the Lake Association outing on Saturday. Started off fishing mud in about 14 fow. Fishing was slow. Kept moving deeper until we consistently marked fish in about 18 ft. Ended with a handful of eater perch and a pike. The best lure of the day was a pink and white glow VMC flash champ tipped with spikes. The lake was crazy busy with the nice weather and the fisheree. Our best fishing was when the sun was out and it was bright. As soon as the clouds rolled in, the bite turned off.
