Yet another Ice Update!

Hello Fishermen & women!
   Well, yesterday we were getting pretty nervous that our precious ice was going away too fast!  We had a bunch of rain & snow melt yesterday.  Larry drove our suburban out early evening to get our ice house off.  We still have 23" of ice, but there are small areas opening up where the rain & snowmelt drained into the lake.  Our access is still open for business, but there is some water on shore.  With the forecasted temps for this week, we are thinking bring ATV's for this weekend!  We just had a group go out from here with a full sized truck and they did fine, because everything re-froze last night.  We have a hot spot for the perch again finally!  It has been a long couple of weeks waiting to find those perch!  They came back into the shallows again!  Stayed tuned & I'll let ya know how our guys do!

Snow, Ice & Fish Update

Well, we never got the snow they were talking about, either time! :0(  As for lake conditions... We have just enough snow on the lake to make it a bugger to get around with 4X4 trucks.  We have plowed out several roads now to make it alot easier for our customers. :0)  There's still 20+" of good solid ice, haven't gained much, but haven't lost any either.  Fishing: Walleye & northerns are biting better now than ever, too bad it's not season!  We've seen more walleye since season closed than all winter! Perch, they were biting really good in 5-7' of water until about 2 weeks ago.  Then they moved out & the walleye & northerns moved in.  We have had a hard time locating the big schools of the Jumbo perch, but we're not giving up!  This is about the time of year where they turn on like crazy!  Afterall, we are known for our Jumbo Perch in March!!  We have a warm front coming in this week & I'm thinking the bite should pick up really good!  Stay tuned for updates!!
