We are ready for the weekend.  Roads are all plowed, private fish house driveways are plowed and a ton of driveways for wheel houses have been plowed.  Last weekend fishing was great for some and ok for most everyone else. Not many out fishing during the week. Two weekends left.  Hope to see you this weekend or the following.  Here are some pictures of fish that were caught.

Certainly glad the sub zero weather is behind us.  All roads, private driveways and wheel house driveways are all plowed and ready for the weekend.  With the temps going to be in the 30's, (that's above freezing) it should be some pretty awesome catching (oops - fishing)!  There are three fish house available for this weekend.  A standard 2 bunk or 4 bunk and a premiere ice cabin.  Here are few pictures that you haven't seen yet.

Due to the sub-zero temps and wind chill advisory we are closing our roads on Tuesday and Wednesday this week.  Actual temperatures are going to be -30 or more with wind chills of -50 to -60.  This is dangerous weather and the chance of your propane gelling or your vehicle not starting are high.  We don’t want anyone working outside in this weather and we do not want people in trouble out on the ice.  We will reopen the roads on Thursday and we will be out plowing because of the high winds on Tuesday and Wednesday.   Everyone’s safety is our first priority.  Thank you for your understanding.

Sorry for not posting anything for a while.  It got a little hectic last weekend.  The weather was nice and the roads have held together really well.  We may not have any bridges out this weekend.  We plowed a lot of spots for wheel houses before the weekend and people used most of them.

 We plowed a new road just south of Agate Bay Reef and will plow driveways all along it.  We extended our road to the north, which is shallower rock structure for Walleye and we will plow driveways along that, as well.

We plowed a new road out crossing Perch Parkway near the fast break from 28’ to 32’, and yes, we will plow driveways along it.  We are trying to give wheel houses a lot of choices of structure and depth and help them from crowding to close to other houses.  If you have a group and want to ne together, that is great and we will help you all we can.  For some folks, ice fishing is very social.  For others, they want space and not be close to other houses, so please be kind and respectful.  We want everyone to have a great time.

 The fishing was great Friday and Saturday, but it shut down into Sunday for most people.  It has since gotten better again and people are having a very good time.

Last week was Northern picture week and we have pictures of some caught at Agate Bay.  Also, a great Perch and a couple of the many Walleyes.  Thank you for sending in the pictures!

The ice has not changed very much.  We still have cracks and bridges.  Everyone needs to drive slowly (10mph) and even slower going over the bridges.  Wheel houses are ok for access.  We are holding off on heavy trucks and tri-axel wheel houses for now.   Hopefully later in the season this will change.


The fishing has continued to be excellent.  We have seen very large walleye and northern, as well as some slot fish.

The bridge over the crack has been working great.  We have pulled private fish houses and allowed our wheel houses with season access out this weekend,  We hope to open up for daily access Monday or at least by next weekend.  There has been some beautiful fish caught the last couple of days.  Here is one of them.  A 30" walleye caught out of one of our rentals.

Today, the main east/west crack opened again and pushed together to raise the bridge.  We moved it and chiseled out a new spot for it. I am afraid with the warm weather this weekend, that may happen daily.  We pulled the rest of our 4 and 6 hole rentals out today.  We also pulled out a few private fish houses.  With the snow and all of the crack issues, it will be a much slower process in pulling houses out and we appreciate your patience.  We are doing our best.  We will be pulling private houses again tomorrow and every day after providing ice conditions remain accessible. 

 

We will be open for all our private customers, including our seasonal wheel houses.  Since 90% of our traffic must go over one bridge, we will not be open for daily car, truck or wheel house traffic.  Daily portable access using four wheelers or snowmobiles will be allowed.   We are trying to save the bridge crossing in order to get our private houses out.  We hope to open for smaller wheelhouse traffic on Monday.  The kitchen is open for breakfast, lunch & dinner.  Hope to see you soon.
