I've been trying to get some friends together for a hardy pond trip, I was thinking about roaming around big Bend. Havnt done it in years, and I belive I've looked around on here and haven't really seen much resguarding croton/hardy. Anyone been out there? Ice Conditions, anything? I have not even soft water fished the pond in a few years, so I would be hard pressed to find much of anything.

I haven't personally fished it, but I have some friends that fish it 4-5 times a week. They report 10-12" of ice, and very slow fishing. They mostly fish for walleye, and they have been having a very slow year.

Thanks. Thinking about re routing the trip this weekend to some place a little closer. If anyone has any info on big whitefish Lake, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Naifc event was a much better tourney than the last 2 years. Took just under 9 lbs to win, we took 3rd with 7.79lbs. Had 61 teams, and a bunch of weights over 6lbs. The fish are deffinettly bigger from my past expierance out there. I could have kept 3 limits of gills over 8in. day of tourney if we were keeping more than what we weigh. Had 4 or 5 gills at or over the 10in. mark over the 4 days of pre fishing and the tourney. A Bunch of 9s or better.
