Just keep on checking. You are like the rest of us, waiting to hear a few good reports for driving.

Did they get the snow we got in the Twin Cities over the last couple of days??.

we got an additional inch and a half or so of snow. saturday's weather blew a lot of snow around on the lake but we did not recieve the heavier amounts that you guys did further down south. driving on the main lake is sort of day to day... it is best to check with the resorts to see how far that they have made it out. there is a good road going out of cove towards spirit island, but i usually wait until i see others out there before i venture out. it is a tough year for making ice with all of the snow and the temps not too terribly cold.

You can drive out of our place in Isle Bay - we have 14"+ on the bay - it's a little drive from Twin Pines, but I hear there isn't a lot of places to drive out of on that side of the lake. You can find us at 510 W. Lake Street; Isle, MN.

Pass to drive out is $10.00

      Wow was it a foggy son of a gun yesterday. In a week or so the hard pack is melted down and there is a lot of slush out there. The roads turned into shallow rivers but there is still a solid block of ice in between the layers of water!  Lots of folks out there yesterday, it was hard to tell until the fog lifted. We fished in 15' of water next to a little bowl of 32' of water and it started out pretty slow. We had three 8 year old girls and they ended up making snowmen for the first hour lol.    About 4 o'clock we caught our first perch, it was a flurry after that until dark. Quite a bit of sorting to do but we kept a dozen and a half in the 9 to 10" range. We caught a few in the 11" range too.

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.
