To the group that was out in Musky Bay on Saturday (1/12):

It was a lot of fun hanging out for a few hours while ya'll slayed the northern. Good meeting you and hope to see you again sometime. Drop me a message if any of you see this.

There are about a billion perch in the lake.... all about 3-4". You can catch some bigger ones but I only know of one place and I doubt it would be good in winter (about 4" of water).  Grindstone is good for big perch, though.

Woke up late and had to get my apron on and do some cooking, so my ice fishing thoughts got sidelined. Lol, thanks for the offer and might take you up on it another day. Hopefully going up around the Rice Lake area with a few friends tomorrow to try some lake's.

If you do head up, give me a shout. I'm more than happy to show you where I catch them. Just note that the bite starts at dusk and goes well after dark.  You could park at my place and walk out from there... it is much closer than going out from Thor's.

Thanks for the report Kargh!!! Got me half tempted to jump in the truck and head up this afternoon also.

My memory sometime's is off a year or two, lol. I know though when I last did a drive by it looked like nobody really fished Musky Bay anymore and I drove in where I use to park/walk out and as stated there was only a old vehicle track that drove in and turned around. 

Nice to hear that it's still being fished and previous comments from subs that they and other's still go out accessing from Thor Ln., not to mention are doing well catching fish!!!

Thanks for the info everyone, maybe I'll have to venture back up this winter/spring to LCO and give it a try.

There is a boat landing out of Victory Heights that you could potentially drive in on. You'd have to drive around the peninsula. It can be a bit rough though, at least last year it was. It is mostly used by snowmobiles. 

People do drive out from Thors though when the ice is thick enough. I'm not really sure why since it is only a few hundred yards to walk out. Of course I drove out for a while last year myself until common sense kicked in (and I saw a few people get stuck in deep, slushy snow).

Probably the same place that you are familiar with -- just at the mouth of Musky Bay. I've only walked out from there once or twice this year but I do see people going out from there often. Sometimes people are parked in there, sometimes they park on the road. Usually I park on the road.

I've been fishing in the deep hole in Musky Bay though I've not been out since Saturday. I got tired of cleaning fish and needed a break. Caught a few northerns and a lot of crappie but very few bluegill.

I'm hoping to get back out this afternoon.
