Hmmmm.. Like I told you on the phone I did see a couple of knuckleheads driving on Muskeg when I was fishing on Wednesday. Reckon they came out of the estates or town as I spoke with Jim this morning and they're not letting folks drive on at the access off the island yet, he said another 2-3 days and 'maybe'.

Spoke with Michelle at Morris Point and they're not looking at opening their road to vehicles for awhile yet. Lake just is'nt making much for ice with all the snow even with these frigid temps.

Going out now can't be any more risky and dangerous than our last trip on the ice via truck last year though eh!!!

Fished Zipple all weekend. Used the four wheeler Friday

(-20!) so we were happy when they decided to open the road to trucks under 1 ton on Saturday. No problem getting around with the Tundra or the wheeler. Hardly anyone out there. Fishing was great, 14-15 inches at our spot in 24 feet.

I know, we talked about it, just lazy I guess. We have another wheel house we are pulling up in 2 weeks, that one will go in shallow. Didn't know if they would let us drive the truck out, and its a bit tongue heavy for the wheeler.

      As most people know there has been some recent incidents out on the ice with people falling through.  Monday two gentlemen fell through on wheelers on HOL.  One of the gentlemen is Dave Genz's brother and since they have a cabin up there I'm sure he has been on the lake more then one time.  Then on Tuesday someone fell through down by Dent on one of the Silent Lakes.  A buddy of mine was on a lake by Frazee yesterday afternoon and even though there was 12" of ice he was able to get through the ice with one hit of his spud bar.  Everyone PLEASE PLEASE be careful out there.  This ice is getting eaten up quickly!  I lost a class mate of mine when he fell through the ice trying to rescue his dog so please just take the time and stay safe.  Don't forget your rope, Spud Bar, and a life jacket if you MUST scratch that last itch!

      No boat this year.  Just wondering if there are fish to be caught from the shoreline along Lock and Dam 5 above Bass Camp.   Seems like a nice place to fish.  Any input if it would be worth the drive
