Fished the last two morninga in the western bays and drop offs, even the south flat- if catching 5” perch was an Olympic sport I’d be standing on the podium singing our national anthem.....

Great boat parade celebrating the wonderful work of all essential workers on the 4th. But sad to see some choose to turn it political.

Ice is being very stubborn.  The wind is slowly moving the sheet south.  Just a little warm weather with this wind would have cleared the lake.  The ice sheet is quite thin, under 6".  Nights in the single digits and teens have definitely prolonged the process.  Don't know if it will clear today but by the weekend is a possibility.  We had snow sticking on the ground last night.  A couple of the smaller lakes cleared and then skimmed over during this cooler weather.  Would've bet money two weeks ago that lake would be clear by now.  Mother Nature is a cruel lady.

Can anyone give an ice report? From looking at the north shore camera it appears there's still quite a sheet of ice present.

This was from a quick google search. I do know the DNR website has info there as well.

Same article just appeared in this month's In-Fisherman's magazine. Mike Pruel does a great job in helping out Lake Metonga along with it's lake association. At times you will see large schools of one to two inch bullheads swimming together in the shallows. Please take the time to net them out of the lake. 

I believe the number of speared walleye is generally around 1000 each spring. Let's make a point in understanding that the Mole Lake tribe contributes to the restocking of the lake which is important to health of her. But I do have a few questions. How are the fish counted? Are there wardens at the landing counting the fish? If so they must have to announce in advance where they will be spearing? Are all walleyes fair game to be speared? And finally are the fish distributed throughout the tribe or can they be sold? Just wondering.

Unfortunately for the walleye, the Mole Lake band has declared and plans to spear 1039 walleye this year from Lake Metonga.......

Thanks for the article. Hopefully they continue to shock as the bullhead population seemed to spike last year.

UWphotos,  that was an awesome article and read! I have seen firsthand lakes that have a high population of bullheads go down in walleye numbers. I will also include largemouth bass in my observations as well. I also want to make a point that smallmouth in studies and once again my own observation do not negativily affect walleyes.

If you fish Lake Metonga, you need to read this article about the walleye fishery on this lake.
