Heading up to Winnie this weekend. Looking for some updated reports on walleyes and perch. Is the trip over to ravens worth it? Thanks Balsa

It's always worth it if you can get there. There's a lot of other places to reel them in.

The best means of transportation to Raven's is a snowmobile. If you can find 32' of water, there will be jumbo's waiting. Ice conditions in that area are 10-18" of ice with 6-8" of slush and snow drifted on top of all that. The area has been untapped since mobility has been limited. Grab your GPS and stop by the lodge and I can point out the spot on the map. If a snowmobile isn't available other spots to try would be out front in 15-18' of water between us and the Birches or you could hit Perch Bar in 22 fow. Late afternoon - early dusk has been the best for the eyes. Relatively consistent bite throughout the day on the perch with some sorting out of smaller ones amongst the jumbos.

I haven't had much for spearing reports since December. Do you usually hit the Third River area or Bowen's Flats??

      Anyone come up with a good way to store the dinette table when fishing? My IC has two holes under the dinette and I put it outside to fish but it is sooooo cold when I turn it into a bed to go to sleep. Thinking of a bracket to hang it inside but I don’t really want to block a window? Any ideas? What do you guys do?

      Went by there today and noticed a few house setup in the contest area.  What happens to them next weekend? They are told to move or get kicked off a public lake? Should have gone to a different lake there Wanderer. Just saying. My son and I today.

      There have been signs there for a long time,   maybe 30 years?

      Good for him making those signs I enjoy his views in a nutshell!

      Access is in good shape at Hole in the Day.  Ice is in good shape and travels MUCH easier than last year.  But that was due to slush getting rutted and refrozen.  These warm temps might play that way again.  But for now all is well. Fishing though... the evening walleye bite was short like usual but finicky for us.  1 - 14 inch eye iced and one other lost.  Set line and shiner was responsible for the 14.  The hooked and lost fish was on a spoon with minnow head but I had to let it hang still for the commitment.  I had several other lookers but they just wouldn’t eat it.  Two lines became one but no bump!  Nice day to be on the lake.

      Been past there many times, never was able to read the whole sign since slowing down could get a guy run over.  Thanks.
