Have seen two houses out, one portable out in front of the ball field, and one perm on the NE corner, that's still there. I drive by it twice daily, but haven't been on it. The guy that owns the perm has had his 4 wheeler out there next to it 3 or so times this week. You may want to check with Joe's tho...just to be safe.

Good luck!

Yep, the white one...I saw it out in front of the access this past weekend...looked like it was stuck due to no roads.

Several more houses on the lake now over on the west side..no reports in yet at the sport shop

It clears up quite a bit late fall. Not as much as some of the smaller lakes, but it's pretty clear in the spring until the end of June.

      Just got back, Warroad access is foot travel only two trucks broke thru on weds morn. Went to Spring Steel on weds it was drive out at your own risk they had a truck break thru tues. eve, I walked out in the little bay there maybe half mile out 7 hrs 1-flag-1-fish 34.5 at 230 that was it did get to see a truck break thru just one tire but they had alittle trouble getting out. Today walked out of Warroad did not need the auger found plenty of open holes. Fished till 100 no flags there were other people out and they were as busy as I was. By SS the ice was 2 feet  but the top foot is getting soft I seen atvs out . It was nice day on the lake yesterday I heard 66 in town also I had a critter attach it self to my sucker today that I did not know was in the lake, a lamprey. I hope this helps you guys be careful out there and good luck.  Stay Safe Good Luck   Bear55

      Andi and I made it out to a local river for a few hrs.... White suckers are running in force. We must have gotten 20 each.

      So how do you guys go about finding fish when you go out...Do you drive around until you mark fish or big schools of smelt then troll that area?? I know I've read about using a site that shows Superiors water temps also....I'm thinking of trying it this weekend if I get the boat ready in time and the weather is ok.
