  1. Was gone for the weekend fishing Mille Lacs. Anyone have any info on Sugarloaf? Hogset? Is the ice gone?

    I was fishing the river thru the weekend so I dont know. Has anyone been out on Limekiln yet this season? If so how much ice WAS there? I am gonna go for a drive and see if theres open water in some spots. I'll post if I find anything out.

  4. I know Portage Lake south of Vicksburg where Kline's Resort is was wide open as of yesterday as I was down there to visit my mom. The marina still has some soft ice though... the marina should be fishable there soon I would think with these temperatures. I drove down Portage road and I believe Austin had ice... but have no idea how good it was. Gourdneck was WIDE OPEN... and West Lake had ice... but again... not sure how good it was. Not sure on Hogset.

  6. Awesome reports guys thank you very much. Hopefully this cold snap makes some hard water in a hurry. I mean it is the middle of Jan. Be safe out there. No fish is worth a chance of a dirt nap!!!
