I got a buddy, Big Andy from the smelting crew, that has been out quite a bit. He's been sending me pic's of big walleyes, northerns, and today a huge bass too! So they are biting. He's been fishing in the Mora area. He even has his fish house there now. Says there is 8 good inches of ice and growing daily. I will be joining him one of these evenings.....good luck everyone.
Covered some area this weekend and found ice to be 5-8 inches. Mostly 5" in the Mora area and mostly 7-8 in the McGregor area. The fish weren't knocking my door down but we ended up with a good meal of crappies.
