I fished here Sat Jan. 23. Usually venture across main lake to fish in the little bay but there was no sign of any travel across the lake. On foot, I test drilled my way out towards the middle and had consistent 9" and then it dropped from 9" down to 4" in 20 steps so I gave up on that idea. There is snomo/quad travel to the west of the island where everybody fishes with a few slush pockets. No trucks as of yet. Snow wasn't very deep so didn't bog down wherever I encountered slush under untracked snow with snowmobile. There were some dark spots out over the main basin that seemed to get more pronounced as the day wore on. The spot I opted to fish didn't produce at all, only marked one fish from noon to 8:30 p.m. Usually do well there but I think the sudden winds that kicked up mid day put the fish in a dormant mood.

I would like to thank Gary and Mike at NORTHERN EDGE SPORT AND MARINE for their great service this past winter season.

I had a snowmobile that had a gas line leak and I needed an emergency repair, it was quite dangerous to continue to use it.

I first brought it to Land-O-Lakes Recreation to see if they would repair it. They would not have anything to do with it, I guess I had to have purchased it from them in order for them to look at it.

But Mike and Gary took me right in and I was up and out with in a half hour!

Thank you Gary !

My two cousins and I sat out here and bashed Pike and a couple Eyes, all afternoon long, about an hour after dark is when the Eyes hit soft. Perch are shallow. Med-Large Shiners through 10" holes on Tip ups. The pic is the smallest we caught. All were released.
