Hope you had some good luck out there. Was a beautiful morning. Starting to build a little more ice out there?

The lake JUST LOCKED UP.. guys are reporting 3"-5" off long point.. those guys are fishing fairly close to shore... to be honest if anyone is dumb enough to take a machine out there just yet.. well.. they're dumb.. MAYBE.. MAYBE.. MAYBE.. by end of the week.. but personally... I wouldn't take a machine out there for another couple weeks.. I dont want to swim

Drilled a couple holes in Mayville by the steamboat today. About 4 inches there. Didn't see anyone on the lake except long point.

Fished off the North side of long point yesterday morning.  Ice was about 3.5" where I was and crystal clear.  Managed to get a couple of keepers but it was slow.  Didn't have to fight off the perch at least.

Hey Rando,

I was also going to try that area on Friday or straight off the point in about 35 fow.  No perch around or you weren't targeting them?  Eyes I assume?  Was wondering if I should bring tip ups with some larger minnows.  Thank you in advance if you don't mind!

I was after the eyes, but usually I can't keep the perch off my bait.  They weren't as aggressive for whatever reason.  Don't usually see too many guys using tip ups on this lake, but I had one out anyway and got no flags.

Good luck this weekend and stay safe.

The plan is heading down to Long Point early Sunday morning but the weather forecast isn't looking to the best.  I don't mind the cold - but possible 18" of snow starting Saturday late afternoon..  Hope it isn't too bad. I need to get out there.  Any word on water clarity off Long Point?  I have a camera and sonar - and the cam is a blast to watch.
