wow what a weekend i went out on stella on sunday night around 7ish or so and that was a big mistake. the waterskiers and all the big boats were out there and i swear they were trying to see how close they could get to you. after almost getting hit 4 times out there i said screw it and left but it wasnt much fun

They weren't any better on Belle either. After lunchtime someone left the gates open and they all came out. Felt like I was getting attacked by mosquitoes with all the buzzing going around. Hard to not expect that on a lake like Belle though on a sunny day.

Was out at Belle for the weekend too. Saw all the boat traffic yesterday and decided to stay ashore.

if they get too close call the sherrif or CO. No need for that $@!* on the lakes. Most probably had some beer on board and in their system, which under state law would be a dwi. Dont get me wrong, I too like to have fun on the lake whether it be fishing or waterskiing or jet skiing, but there are limits and laws to follow. Upsetting fisherman seems to be a way of getting these people off. If it ever got bad to where i thought i would get hit, I would put on the old 6 oz sinker and start casting at them when they come by. It would only take one thump for them to drive somewhere else.

      I know this is an Ice Fishing thread, but I can't seem to find much information on ice condition on the lake or how the snow looks out there and on the trails. I live down in the Duluth area and was thinking about coming snowmobiling up there this next weekend. Seems the whole states in a stupid heat wave. But you guys had more snow than us before, was wondering if there's still enough to snowmobile.

      LOTS of traffic on the Hole In The Day access over the weekend.  It degraded noticeably from Saturday to Sunday.   There are two paths heading out.  The one going straight ahead has a bit of a ridge at shore that longer houses/low clearance vehicles might have a little trouble with.  The one to the right is angled and doesn't have the ridge but developed a hole at shore Saturday night.   I'm hoping it doesn't get any worse but probably will before the weekend.  We were planning on being out overnight before the contest but plans seem to be changing.  Especially since it was reported that a vehicle went through by Hunters Point over the weekend.  Hunters Point is on the Southwest side of the lake but makes my wife leary of taking out truck and house back out even on the Northeast end where the contest is.   Sorry for the bad news.  I'm still crossing my fingers and will check the access again this week.

      Very nice fish! Thanks for the heads up on the ice cleats. Do you know how the access is holding up with this warm weather ?
