I've been wondering the same thing Joe. I have a place on the West side of the Flowage & have been itching to get over there (from St. Paul) unless it isn't worthwhile. Any reports on ice condition, crappies or other appreciated!! Snow cover - can a wheeler navigate without any issues?

Report from Jenk's on Jan 20th indicated Northern on West side weeds 4-8 ft, and panfish deeper in Moores, Nursery & Hay Creek.

I haven't been out to either lake in a while but I'd believe that report by Jenks, pretty much in line of what I saw last year. And snow depths are minimal, maybe 4 to 5 inches so you should have no problem at all with a 4 wheeler.

I wrote that before I looked outside. We got another 5 or 6 inches last night which might make 4 wheelers a little tough unless you've got 4 wheel drive or chains. Still might be okay but snowmobile would probably be better right now. Suppose to hit 35 today so that will knock it down a little.

was out on the mighty chip searching for ice out crappie. managed to keep 12 crappie from 9.5 to 11 inches under slip floats with minnows and on jig and minnow on drop. enjoy the peace and quiet this time of year. water levels still bout 5 feet low, many stumps and bars sticking out of water. landings are also hard to use. looking forward to the weekend again,

Opener round up. This will be the 3rd year in a row we will be traveling down to the Chip flow for opener. This year will the Governor will be there as well. We are going to try our best to avoid that crowd LOL... Sounds like the waters are low, so be careful where you travel. Also, I am sure the law that governs the waters will be out in full force so be responsible... Lastly.. Let em go let em grow! Last year we watched a boat keep a eye that was around 10lb. Pretty sure they ate it! yuk!!! Good luck and well see ya on the water.

Weather was outstanding for opener.

Took my Dad fishing on the Chip.

We did well. Kept a limit on Saturday (3 each) with crappies and northerns mixed in.

My bait all died on me Saturday night. Too warm I suspect.

We bought bait at a local Bp Sunday morning, and the bait way too large, in my opinion, for walleye fishing. A lot of hit and miss, but we managed 4 nice keepers.

Lot's of boat traffic..

First time out on the open water sinse last year. Was a nice day to be out. wink

Fished the Chip this weekend and found some success.  Lots of crappie action in select bay and bottle neck areas near warm water, timber and old cabbage.  Bobber and minnow was best, but anything was working.  We kept 10 smaller fish for the 3 of us and that was plenty of fish for us.  No need in keeping 25 fish (what a joke).  I wish the DNR would reduce the limit in WI!

    • Fake quote. I never said anything about 'Swans". I thought you were against fake quotes?    
    • The best light beer ever made!
    • Yikes! read the ingredients. make them from scratch. Many recipes on the web.
    • I have not purchases Forscan as I have access to an  OEM scan tool. There are somethings that the Forscan software can do that IDS cannot with Asbuilt. I have ways arround that. Just to clarify, you may not have to purchase the software to do what you want but use their free version. This is worth exploring. As for the OBD interface, might want to ask that question is a specific f150 forum and get an idea of what others are using.    High speed and medium speed compatibility would be nice for future toying. For your truck, you only need high speed interface. I can't remember what pins. Your truck has a gateway module DLC.  Basically it's a router that allows the different networks to communicate, but also your scan tool to communicate with all the networks over HS CAN 1 and 2.   The only software related mod I have done to my car is change the 3 turn signal blinks to 4.   Happy modding!
    • Ok that makes sense. When I saw swan I figured it was an member id. When I went to cub today I asked the HS kid if they had any  I got "I know we have them I just don't know where they'd be". I said freezers maybe by the other tots he said "what makes you think that" You can't make it up!
    • I think Schwan's is what was meant.   https://www.schwans.com/products/product?id=60297   The operator person will bring them right to your abode.

    • Box? i don't think I've ever seen them but will be looking in a little while
    • Buy a box of cheesy tots.  Cook.   Use rack over sheet pan on grill or in oven.  😀
    • Cheesy tots sound great! Anyone got a recipe?
