Well, Larry just got done drilling holes to measure the ice... There's 12-14" of good solid ice. Closer to shore it's 12 & out further its 14". People have started driving out cars, jeeps, and 1/2 ton trucks. We have about 2-3" of snow, so people are able to get around easily. The perch bite has been steady in about 10' of water. We are also seeing some at 15-18' as well. Some of our guests said they missed a few walleye this morning. Most people are using a jig and a minnow, with some dead sticking. The weather seems to be holding steady for the next week or more so the bite should continue to be pretty good.

Ice update... Blackduck still has about 10-11" of ice. We havent' made any real progress on thickness this week, but at least we've held steady! We were hoping to be driving out trucks this weekend, but we are NOT recommending it at this point! Fishing has also stayed the same, with perch, northerns & a few walleye being caught during daylight hours, the bite has pretty much shut down at night, but you never know, that could change anytime!

Weekend Update! The ice stayed about the same over the weekend. But with cooler temps forecasted for this week, we should be driving on by next weekend! Friday was a good day bite, and Saturday the perch were biting all day long with the front moving in. We've seen just about every species of fish caught this weekend, including an eelpout! Guys have been fishing in 10' of water, just on the edge of the weedline, with fat heads & crappie minnows. A couple crappies were caught in the deeper water.
