Wilderness Warmth Report 1-16-08 9:15pm

Well lets start with the current ice report - we now have roads open to Kings Hump, Little King and Kings Finger and a new road is in progress to Spirit Island, should be complete by friday. Roads are in excellent condition while there are still some spots off the roads that contain large pockets of slush and where the snow is deep it has a thick crust on top so when venturing off roads bring a shovel. We are pulling all size houses at this time but please keep the speed below 15mph and lets bring on the cold!!!!!

Now for the fishing report, this past weekend the walleyes were cooperating nicely with some limits taken and some nice jumbo perch also taken. But as of the last couple days the walleyes have developed lock jaw again, the bite has been tough so you need to be mobile and fish with light tackle and finesse. Small buck shots, red hooks and rainbows seem to be the ticket. Good luck, good fishing and most of all be safe!!!! grin.gif

No we don't sell bait but you can buy all your bait at Lundeen's Tackle Castle on the corner of 169 & 27E.

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
