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

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..
