Hello everyone, I wanted to give you a heads up that South Billhorn on BSL is most likely very unsafe. It just froze over a day or two before we got the snow, so there might only be a couple of inches at the most. So let people know not to snowmobile in that area and I wouldn't even walk in that bay yet. That bay gets to 80ft-90ft deep so that's why it takes so long to freeze. In situations like this with "safe ice" in most areas and very unsafe ice in this spot, why can't the DNR post signs letting people know. Because I can see some people fishing or riding that are not familiar with the lake go into this bay not knowing the dangers. I understand people should take their own responsibility and check ice conditions for themselves, but this is a tragedy waiting to happen. If we contacted the DNR, would they help in this situation?

      Much different lake from a week ago. Snow on shores and ice in reeds. Water temps were down quite a bit. 42 in main lake 45 in shallow bays. Had a few followers on spinner baits but no hits.

      Went fishing for a couple hours yesterday. Water temp was 48-50. It was a nice day to be out on the water. My arms and neck are a lovely shade of red to prove it. Make sure you're smarter than me and toss a tube of sunscreen in the tackle box before you head out.

      Smoked up 4 for a test and really good!  Quite different than the crappies. Nice and oily and the skin peels right off. Scales are pretty big so a bit of a mess but easy peasy.

      I attended an event Saturday out of Everts. Eye bite was really slow for the 20 boats but a few nice fish were caught. Got into a buncha white bass at the end of the day and it was game on.   Brined some overnight and smoked em up to try them. We thru cranks and swim baits all day.
