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.

      I'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
