CONDITIONS
Snowing

ICE DEPTH

AIR TEMP
11° - 15° F

Use EXTREME CAUTION on Lost.  Tons of snow on ice.  Before the snow there was a very sketchy area in basically the majority of the main basin.

Hauled a shanty out on a solid 6" but when popping holes out in area that was previously sketchy we got a scary 1" thick surprise. With all the snow on top I fear this is a recipe for disaster and am sure it isn't unique to Lost this year.  Just be careful, if venturing out and you see the shanty the area to the west of it is the problem area.

As for fishing. It was really slow with only a couple small pike to show for our efforts.

Found about 5 inches on the bay to the left of the boat landing. Last Saturday. Looked kinda shakey out further, so we stayed in the bay. Fishing was slow only a few perch.

I took a few hours off from bow hunting and got out for muskies.  I have been confounded by rain and warm temps this fall so this cooler weather was welcomed for muskie fishing.  There is always an algae bloom in the fall as shallow weeds die and add nutrients to the water which triggers an algae bloom .  Turnover is still a bit away on most lakes but few 30 degree nights like Friday night will get them to turn.  With that said, the crazy  fluctuating temps this summer and fall may have created a more uniform temp profile.  In other words there is no stratification on some lakes so turnover effects will be minimal.

Here is a picture of my PB caught on Saturday in 20+ feet of water on a sucker. (48 1/4” and close to 30 lbs) It really surprised me when it finally surfaced as I was expecting a green fish not a ghost. This is a weird color phase and this particular fish was hooked 3 consecutive years on the same day.

Interesting. Yeah, the water had some of that green for sure today and it appeared very murky overall compared to when I was there in June. The pier just went out yesterday so we were all launching the best we could. Very busy boat landing today.

I was there Wednesday and the water was bright green from an algae bloom. Never saw a fish. One of the few lakes with a pier still in.

Knew it might be a tough day after hearing what guys had to say at the launch. Quite a few came in around 2:00 when we went out. Badger game? Poor fishing? Both? 

Water was cloudier than usual it seemed and the temps were 53 - 55 degrees. No fish. Turnover?

Just got back from my week vacation. Horrible fishing compared to all the other years I've been going up. About 15 keeper pearch 3 keeper gills and only 5 crappie. I did get a nice 29in pike,caught it on my ultra lite and a pink mini mite while looking for crappie. No green weeds to be found, they sprayed the lake to kill them off and I hear it's gonna happen again next year.
