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.

      FYI 2 of the 3 landings near us were starting to look a little beat up yesterday. With the temps & moisture today along with more of same forcasted for tomorrow, I have to believe that access to the area lakes will be getting tougher.

      Still about 14-15 inches of ice...plenty of slop and water today. Access was very beat up when I left.

      Anyone know what resorts are/aren't open to wheelhouse traffic this weekend? I see Hunters point and Agate bay are closed due to cracks by shore. I usually fish the east shore but might have to be open to something else.... Anyone know what resorts are/aren't open to wheelhouse traffic this weekend?

      I took a break from walleye fishing on Vermilion and decided to chase crappies for a few days to get away from the crowds. Fun and a good bite also! Cliff
