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.

      I live 10 min from cabelas and they have like 4 trolling motors on the floor.... dont like buying something i cant look at.

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.

      The quality of walleye on fish has really amped up since the slot. I would put it up there with the St. Louis River now as far as local waters that produce quality walleye. Sometimes it's hard to catch an eye under 17"...its kinda the opposite of Island Lake. I wish the protected slot was a little longer as I don't see many over 26".

      I never got a chance to get down to Superior in the morning to fish from shore, as it was always a little too rough every day. I did get up early enough to make it to the devil track river, finally for the first time. Was nice to check it out, although my time was short. Caught 1 little rainbow, and lost 6!    Also checked out the Poplar River for the first time, off the caribou trail, at the campgrounds. Only fished it for a little bit, but caught 2 brook trout, one of which was about 12 inches. River was surprisingly deep, was wading in waste deep water.    My dad and my son are still up there. But they haven't really been able to fish due to the rain on Saturday and Sunday. If it was nice today, they were going to go back to Greenwood Lake. Otherwise, if the weather was bad, they were coming home a day early. Haven't heard from them yet, so hopefully they were able to get out.

      Yes just north of Cook.  They are open 7 days 8:00-4:30. Y-store is open 5am - midnight.
