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.

      When I left for work yesterday the lake had white caps on it. When I got back 10hrs later it was locked up. An hour after that the first idiot was broke through the landing. If we get the snow they are predicting for Saturday my guess is there will be sleds in the water this weekend. They do it every year.    Patients people.

      Minnetonka there is a guy named John he just picked up 4 2017 wheel houses to add to his rentals I think he has 7 total now. He knows the lake darn well this is probably you best bet for the limited area you are willing to travel. I will pm you his info

      I have never fished it in the winter. Do not know of anyone that has either. Should be good though! Cliff
