I will be fishing well into april the way its looking. Can't beat a 4 month hardwater season. Most lakes still have as much ice on them as they did a month ago.

I know ill be fishing until the ice honeycombs. We are hardly into late ice yet the way this year is going.

We had a day of perchin on Mille Lacs 8 years ago that will be in the memory books for a long time. It was towards the end of march and the ice wasn't going to be on much longer. We went out carrying planks to cross cracks and where we were fishing, there was almost 3 feet at the beginning of the day. 8 hours later, there was only about 2'-6" and the top 6 from it being so warm that day were like mush. You could stomp your foot in a couple inches if you tried. The ice was broken up and off the lake 10 days after we fished, but man did we fish. Between the 8 of us, we caught around 1200 jumbos, most were thrown back, but we kept a good number for the table too. It was quite the experience to be there for that hot bite, on the very last day of walkable ice on the lake. What a day it was.

Although it's in the process....it ain't over yet and I still have a couple or 3 more trips up to Mille Lacs in me...that perchin is addictive! Especially when you have had good fishing in the past and know what it's like....hard to beat a 14 inch perch through the ice!
