will there be any type of plowed road going out of JRs or West Wind for the weekend? (for us walkers)

How much longer to we expect until trucks can get out? this past weekend we found areas with 12 inches, granted that was only 1/2 mile out

I checked the ice yesterday and I found 8-10 inches of ice. Its not going to be enough to plow a road on yet but soon. West Wind won't have a road this weekend but depending on the weather, it will be as soon as the ice is safe for vehicle traffic.

no one even plows a trail with a 4wheeler yet?

On Upper Red a four wheeler trail would last about 1/2 hour with this snow and wind before it became the deepest snow on the lake. Thats why the guys that have been plowing ice roads for the last 30 years make them super wide and super straight then fight 24/7 to keep them open.

Soon the plows will be rolling.

some folks think the road is so wide that they might as well set up their portable in the middle of it! Sorry, I couldn't resist...

      The ice is fine. I have a lot of standing water because my house is dark color. Come up and enjoy this weather. Ice is 24-30".a little snow left out on ice.

      Nick, you did a great job finding good fish for everyone.  Wished I woulda brought at least one rod and my flasher for the short time I was there.  But it was good to meet y'all face to face.   I got a hankering for some pannies now.  Might have to look for some tomorrow.

        I had the same experience today. Tons of little gills and very few big ones pike were not going on anything on tip ups today though. Wasn't fishing your area but figured I'd chime in. I had anywhere from 17-29 inches of ice with some water on top ice is great yet.

      Still plenty of good ice on Bartlett Lake today. 16" where I was at. No standing water on the ice yet. The shorelines were in good shape, too. Too bad it will probably all be trash by Tuesday.   The bluegill were biting well this morning, but for every decent sunny I had to throw back about eight potato chips.   The Northern were slamming tip-ups baited with shiners. Too bad for me I brought suckers. I caught a couple Northern, and a 16" largemouth as well. I would have liked to get out to the airport lake tomorrow morning (after a trip across the river to get some shiners  ), but I have other things to do. The backwaters around Winona will just have to wait until next December.
