Has anyone been venturing out to the east end reefs around Blueberry Island? How are the ice conditions?

HI CAPTIAN,

ICE IS POOR AT BEST YET, WE HAVE 2" TO 12" OF ICE, LIGHT FREEZE, HEAVY SNOW...POOR ICE., HOWEVER WITH THAT BEING SAID

FISHING IS STILL GOOD, FISHED THE OTHER DAY FOR 2 HOURS, AND CAUGHT A NICE LIMIT OF WALLEYES, NICE PERCH, SOME NORTHERNS.

I LIKE TO BE CAREFUL TELLING FOLKS ABOUT HOW GREAT THE ICE IS, I'D RATHER BE ON THE SAFE THEN SAYING EVERYTHING IS EXCELLENT & SOMEONE ENDS GOING SWIMMING OR WORSE., WHERE I WAS THERE WAS 10" OF GOOD ICE & NO SLUSH. BUT THAT SAME NIGHT 2 OF MY BUDDIES WERE IN SAND BAY, 3 HITS WITH A CHISEL & WENT THRU. SO THATS WHY I SAY 2" TO 12".

SINCERELY,

FISHMEISTER

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      Thanks, shes a tough lake to keep stocked I think with the pressure it gets all summer.

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
