There were guys out on Grand Lake two days ago but its raining cats and dogs now. Sounds like the forecast is not going to make good ice for awhile. A fisherman with a small boat could have gotten out of Harrisville harbor with no trouble. Good luck with the derby.

I am a member of Lost Lake and I called up there last week and talked to the assistant manager and she said that they have 6 to 8 inches of ice and that the Trout Derby is a definite go. I called the Side Door Bait Shop on the south side of Hubbard Lake and he said the same thing. I will be heading up Wednesday night to do some pike fishing at the club and walleye fishing on Hubbard.

There is really no one place that is better than any other. Bear Lake, where the Derby is held, is fairly flat with little structure. There is one hole about 15 feet deep and some weeds on the south side in arount 7 to 8 feet of water. I usually try to stay away from the crowd but the people in the middle of the noise and snowmobiles quite often do better. The fishing usually gets better after the Derby ends at 3:00 pm.
