I tried it. The ice is good. The fishing wasn't. There were about a million holes drilled out there. I think that area has been hammered due to the poor travel out to the flats. I'd go to Rocky Reef on the south end if you want somewhere close and a couple fish here and there good luck.

Do you meant Betker flat? yes it has been hit hard this year and it is never very good i spent too much time on it past years due to lack of tranportation at thin ice periods. there is good ice ther but i tried it in Dec. and got one eye. i would go someplace else.

I have been out there twice this year and only two pout put on ice. I agree, lots of fishing pressure and very few fish being caught. I usually have much better luck. Only a few slush pockets out to the flat.

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
