Welcome to FM. I would call up Highbanks and ask them for the current conditions but last guys I talked to didn't have any trouble with thier atvs.

Sure you can give us a call at 800-365-2560, we have a new phone system that gives DAILY updated fishing reports with ice conditions. If you're in the area, stop by the lodge and say "hi". We can give you a copy of our road system and give you some suggestions of spots to try for the perch and eyes.

HIHGBANKS,

Great idea with the 800 no.! And thanks for your great service to all us icefishing junkies over the past years.

Is that ice/fishing report no. just a recording? I wouldn't want to call late and wake anyone up.

Thanks!! We've found that the new phone system is working well and getting the info out to the guys that are inquiring. Yup - it's just a recording - so you can call 24/7 - it doesn't actually "ring" here at the lodge.

I talked to Kim yesterday and she said it was around the 1st. Sounds like the front tires went in, not the whole truck.

No rumor, it happened on January 2 on "Fish House 4 Hump", driving "Rammie" the black and white Chevy 1 ton with the v-plow he was on 12 inches of ice and came across a crack and part of the crack busted under the front tires and the v-plow was on one side of the crack, the front tires in the crack and the back tires on ice. It took a little coaxing, but we got "Rammie" out safe and sound.

Fishing was sporadic this weekend we fished th humps in 24+ fow when the bite was on it was fast a quick three nice fish and then quiet. I worked around the area up and down and in the end we got some nice fish both eyes and perch. Tryed on top after dark only one small eye and a rockbass.
