The snow isnt bad out there yet. There are some drifts that are a little tough, but if you navigate around the big ones you may be OK. Lots of truck traffic at Rky Pt today, and fishing was good for me this AM, slower after noon. Left the lake with some nice fish today, Buckshots and a jigging shad rap were the best- 29' near rocks was my depth.

I can only speak of conditions on Bablers Rd but it is still not too bad with 4wd. It is a little tougher than a week ago and I bet it would be tough to pull a wheel house with a wheeler (even with chains). I think you are pretty safe almost anywhere with a truck right now if you watch for the obvious heaves and keep the speed down. I had a guy drive close enough to my hard house to get stuck in the associated snow drift, so beware of fish house drifts confused.gifwink.gif.

I have been going out from the Birch Beach area and close to shore doesn't seem to be an issue getting around. I do agree with Roger about there being more snow out farther on the lake and there is a few areas out there that have alot of slush also.

      Great stuff guys

      The lakes took a beating and I was not out on Sunday to see the damage. Saturday I saw the first 4 to 5 inches turn soft. Be careful and check the ice conditions

      6 inch that is a 4.5 inch

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?
