    I went out to North Golden last Saturday afternoon.  Beautiful weather.  The access was still in good shape but I just walked out from the east side access.  Something about driving a suburban on a lake in April did not excite me.  A four wheeler would have worked well too.  Ice was still very thick although I did not need the extension.  Fished for about 4 hours and caught some small perch and three 4 lb northerns.  I was graphing fishing but the bite was tough.

    Curious to know how the access is on North.  I was out on Sunday and there was no way to drive on ice.  Access was blown in pretty bad.  Anyone know if it's been plowed?  Whoever had been plowing it....thank you!

     Wondering about snow conditions on Golden or North Golden... I am come once a winter from South Dakota and take family fishing. Wondering if I need to bring a pick up or if I can get on and around on ice with all wheel drive cross over?

    Went out on Sunday in the pouring rain to give it a shot.  Dock is not in yet so launcing the boat in the wind and loading the boat was pretty interesting.  Trolled spinners with a little luck.  Landed a handful of pike with a couple nice ones, a few perch and 1 13.5 inch walleye that went back into the lake.  Lost a few BIG fish that we never got a chance to see.  Tried fishing shallow and deep, but never really got a pattern down.  Best fishing was in the 9.5 FOW range.  Lake is completely filled with cormorants.  Fished for 4 hours.
