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!!

      I know this is an Ice Fishing thread, but I can't seem to find much information on ice condition on the lake or how the snow looks out there and on the trails. I live down in the Duluth area and was thinking about coming snowmobiling up there this next weekend. Seems the whole states in a stupid heat wave. But you guys had more snow than us before, was wondering if there's still enough to snowmobile.

      LOTS of traffic on the Hole In The Day access over the weekend.  It degraded noticeably from Saturday to Sunday.   There are two paths heading out.  The one going straight ahead has a bit of a ridge at shore that longer houses/low clearance vehicles might have a little trouble with.  The one to the right is angled and doesn't have the ridge but developed a hole at shore Saturday night.   I'm hoping it doesn't get any worse but probably will before the weekend.  We were planning on being out overnight before the contest but plans seem to be changing.  Especially since it was reported that a vehicle went through by Hunters Point over the weekend.  Hunters Point is on the Southwest side of the lake but makes my wife leary of taking out truck and house back out even on the Northeast end where the contest is.   Sorry for the bad news.  I'm still crossing my fingers and will check the access again this week.

      Very nice fish! Thanks for the heads up on the ice cleats. Do you know how the access is holding up with this warm weather ?
