I took a group up to Basswood Lake yester day on a dogsledding/fishing trip. Ice conditions varied from lots of SLUSH to thin ice. We found spots that only had 4-5 inches of ice...kinda scary for January. We caught some nice northerns, one weighing in a 20 LBS and some in the 4-7 range. ALl were caought on ciscos and shinners in 20-25 feet of water. Had one nice Lake trout to the hole, but lost it along w/ a nice walleye. All in all it was a good day.
