Still 7-9â€ in bay and on Roads A&B. Snowmobile and 4-wheeler traffic is still ok. Ice is just not growing as quickly as we would like.
Out rental spear houses are all out, one-hole and two-hole houses with indoor bathroom, chairs, carpeted floors and heater.
Fishing reports are scarce, folks donâ€™t like to stop in to tell us their stories this early in the year. What we are hearing is that the fish have been biting pretty well. Nice reports of northerns, walleyes, some small perch and a few dogfish. One group yesterday and a couple northerns angling in 3-13′ of water, a 3 lb and a 30″, on fatheads. If you are spearing, recommend some larger suckers for your decoys. Another group had two walleyes, a 12â€ and a 14â€ walleye down Road B. Nice healthy, fat fish.
We donâ€™t expect to be driving vehicles or putting any sleeper houses out this weekend.
