18" of ice out in centre by weeds. Small SUVs on ice moving around fine. Over flow is frozen but crunchy to drive through.

Tried summer and winter for perch. This lake used to produce 12" perch in th 90's. Those days are gone. Saw a few small perch on the Marcum below 4 inches. What happened? Over fishing, winter kill? Another perch lake killed.

I stopped into Minnow Lake today. It was my first time and I started shallow and worked my way into medium depth. I hooked one decent sized pike but he got off at the hole. One other pike bit my wire worm but didn't come back for a second try. I only stuck around for a few hours. I saw others on the lake fishing in what I would assume to be deeper water. I will try this one out again. I see many people talking trash about the lakes in this area, but since I am new to the area, I have had nothing but good luck in most places that I have fished. It's way better than southern Alberta, where I am from.

Hammered walleye all morning some nice 4-6 pounders got about 20 lots of fight in them water is still coolish. The pike were all sunbathing in the shallows by the reeds and couldn't make a cast with top water poppers without a pike hitting it. This is a Great Lake to fish on. Pike weren't big though
