Had two 4-person sleeper houses rented last weekend (Jan. 4-6) out of Zippel Bay Resort. We did real well in the 3 days. Totalled about 150 (walleye/sauger & 10 perch) between the two houses, including a 20-inch and 27 3/4-inch walleye both caught on rattle wheels on plain hooks & fatheads. We were woken up all 3 mornings around 7:45 a.m. to the sound of rattle wheels going off, and the bite would be hot for about an hour and then taper off. But we still had plenty of action throughout the day, and even were woken up a few times during the very early morning hours (2-3 a.m.) by the rattle wheels. The big walleye came at 10:15 p.m. on the last night of our stay. We caught a lot of dinky walleyes between 6-11 inches, but still caught plenty of keepers to go around (all 8 people went home with limits, and even had some to eat during our trip). Fished 22 feet, and they had our houses set up on the far out edge outside all of the other houses. Gold and pink/glow didn't let us down, jigging or deadsticking. Hope this helps. Good luck!!

      The Bay is so different from the Lake.  The heavy breeze is keeping the lake open.  Things calm down Fri to Sun that will most likely freeze the lake over.  Then we get strong winds again on Mon to Wed that could likely blow it open again.  You may be able to fish the bay, but I am doubting the lake.  JMHO.  I can wait, but I am getting the itch.

      I have a 2015 21' Ice Castle RV that has two house batteries. I added the second to the house. It will run the furnace fan all night but it is running a lot slower by morning. There is a noticeable increase in fan speed when I start the generator in the morning. I am thinking of adding a third battery to the house to make up the difference.

      Any area ice reports? I'm hearing that most of the smaller bodies of water in the area have now frozen over. Should make it out sometime this weekend to try my luck . Good luck, and please stay safe
