Ice is in great shape, including our road to the flats. All of our rental houses are out and probably 2/3 of the private houses, as well. They are catching walleyes near Agate Bay Reef in the lower light periods and starting to get some nice perch in deeper water. We have a pretty good map of our roads with some depths on it that we give you with your road pass and we will give you some some suggestions as well.

We will plow some driveways off the roads for wheel houses on Friday so if you come up after dark on Friday you will have a place to go and we will plow you a new driveway on Sat. morning if you  do not like our spots.

We still have a few openings for rental houses this weekend. Our Premier Ice Cabins are all rented, but we have a few standard houses available. Call 320-684-2233 for availability.

We opened our road to Blue Jug Flat on Friday and it is in good shape. In fact, all of our roads are in great shape. We have 14-16 inches of good ice and all of our roads are open. We opened the South Road today. The walleye bite has stayed good near Agate Bay Reef. Try 16-18 feet with red hooks and shiners on set lines. So far, the set lines are doing as good,if not better,than jigging spoons.

We have started to get some reports from the deeper water on perch and they are getting some nice ones. Try the break out around 28-29 feet off Perch Parkway. You have to sort thru some smaller ones, but not as many really small ones as the past two years.

We are open for wheel houses and we will plow you a driveway off our roads if you need one and try to help you find a good spot. Our cafe is open for excellant meals and we have a good supply of minnows in stock, including shiners. Come on up and have a great time.

December 22,2010

Well our new web site is up at last. We apologize for the inconvenience during the design.

We began pulling houses last Friday and started allowing vehicle traffic on Sat. afternoon. We are still fighting a few cracks and we have some bridges out, but we are winning so far. The roads are open and in great shape. It is very good ice this year and the cracks should be better when we get some more snow on the ice.

All of our roads are open except the road to Blue Jug Flat and we hope to stake that either today or on Thurs. We will open that soon if the ice is good. Walleye Drive, Lake St., Archers Ave., Perch Parkway, Moon Reef Road, and Flamingo Drive are all open.

The fishing has been very good for walleyes, as it seems like most everyone is staying shallow to,take advantage of our good early year. They are catching the most in 16-18 feet of water just off Agate Bay Reef in the lower light periods. Fish a little deeper during the day, about 20 feet.

They are catching some good perch on the inside of Walleye Drive on the east side of the reef. I do not have any reports from Perch Parkway yet so I do not know about the deeper perch bite.

The walleye bite on the flats has also been very good for those venturing out.

We will be open until about noon on Friday and then we will close until 5:00 pm on Saturday to celebrate Christmas. We will begin pulling houses again on Sunday.

We would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and thank you for your continued business during the last year.

Come up and enjoy one of the earlier years of good ice and great fishing we have had for many years.
