We are out on the ice!

We got a start on fishing! Lake conditions still have a ways to go! Open areas now a thin layer of ice 1-2” and we have 11 – 11.5” – Day House’s and 2 Sleepers set up with 7 more Sleepers to go! Fishing up and down – Terry fished in our small 2 man – 23 caught- kept 2, 12 lb burbot and a slot walleye in the mix- small one’s morning – afternoon bite – they turn on around 3:30. Ice not safe enough to open access – keep watching temps- bring on the cold!!

Our deepest apologies to the guests that reservations were cancelled due to the unsafe ice conditions.  Early ice fishing is a time we love but only works if the cold temps are with us!!  There is an area of ice that continues to be unsafe but this too will be thick enough for safe ice fishing conditions.

Nice Fish Jerome!!

Jerome and Brad Thank you so much for joining us again this winter! Nice Fish Jerome!!
