The pressure and weather has been getting to them.  :'( Getting pretty tight lipped they are.  Lotsa dinks to weed thru.  Been struggling with the bottle flu and going through all my minnows on dinks!  may as well be in the slammer......prolly eat better :laugh:

Hopefully when we get this weather stabilized we'll turn them lookers into biters ehhh?

Hey crappiebuster, I am planning on traveling up this weekend with a few friends and our sons

will fish Saturday until late and Sunday early morning til about 1 or 2pm.

Please keep us updated on the ice conditions ;D

If it gets bad we will cancel and fish closer to home - wait a bit longer ..... my son is dying to set up the tip-ups for walleye.

Maybe catch a few perch and crappies while we wait on a flag :tipup: :tipup: :tipup:!!!!

U da man....Tight lines!!!
:o

Ice is still hanging in there.  Theres good ice under that slush so yeh I wouldnt worry about coming up this weekend at all.  Seen many 3/4 tons and 1 tons on the ice yet today.

Nice picture Crappiebuster and nice Musky too...  :o How big was it?  Bet that was a blast to catch and pull up the hole...

The ice was 12-14 inches at Clear Lake all last week that I fished, so I would not worry other than to make sure your boots are waterproof, for anyone fishing over there the next few days, unless we get cold again.  Bad thing is we'll all be slipping and sliding all over the place when it does cool down again.  Bring your cleats. ;D
