My friend heard someone went through recently. He drove over there but didn't see anything. Maybe someone else knows something more.

I know. I was planning on heading out there. The only bait shop in the area I know of is Petry's in Finlyason.

Won't be there until the 27th, but just wondering how thick the ice is? With this cold spell I'm guessing I'll be able to drive all over the lake by then? Did anyone hit it up for the trout opener? Would like to hear some reports.

Ice was good, fishin was slow. Too many people on the ice at one time really scared the trout. Also some people were driving trucks and that was making the ice crack alot so that didnt help either. Only managed two bows. Lost a few and seen about a dozen all together.

Did someone go through about a week ago? How is travel on the ice with a wheeler?

I'm guessing the 'bows were suspended? How far down over what depth? Waxies or minnows?

Not much snow it would be easy with a wheeler. We fished in about 7 feet and they were half way down. Straight out from the access. We tried in really deep water and lost a big one that was 6 feet down. The vexilar broke so i couldnt tell you how deep it was out there but i didnt have enough line on my reel to get down there.

      Thanks for the feedback friends, looks like about a $3,500 surgery and yes, the professionals say what you have all said that a second ACL injury happens often in the other hind leg as a result of over compensating....

      Here is the prize list for this years contest. Lots of food and drinks available at the contest also. Booya will again be sold on the ice provided by the Little Canada Fire Department.   My apologies, I cannot figure out why this will not present the correct way.   Fishing Prizes 2017.pdfFishing Prizes 2017.pdfFishing Prizes 2017.pdf

      The warm weather has opened up some cracks and you can watch the road operators earn their money.  New roads were popping up quickly and bridges were set and the day went off without a hitch.  Thanks for good quick work so we could all fish today. BTW....fishing is staying pretty solid.....Here is today's report
