There is a fair amount of crusted snow on the lake. You might be able to pick your way through the drifts if you have good tires... other wise stick to the roads and pick an already plowed out side trail.... there are plenty of them out there. Hillman's road runs out 8.5 miles and from 5 miles out to there is lots of room with already broken trails and roads at the ends to spread everyone out.

Good Luck!

We were up there last week and were kinda of dissapointed we couldn't fish our spots due to all of the snow. Were last year you could pretty much drive wherever you wanted, you will be a little restricted on where you want to go, but still alot roads out there...

Labs,

We were up the last two weekends and drove off a side road and saw a red house with a bra hanging on the nail. Could this be the infamous Lab Shack??

I wish!!! grin.gif

Naw, I usually make them take 'em home with them... I'm a pretty modest guy! blush.gif

The Labshack is pretty easy to find, just look for Kelly or Jon and follow the broken pieces that are falling off of it... It's an old trick Kelly developed deer hunting, he drops a bread crumb every couple of steps to find his way home... he does the same on the lake except it's a big loaf of LABSHACK...!

Good Luck!

Good Luck!

This weekend was the 1st for me for the year. It was cold!!! So we set up once and lived with where we set up.

I got it on good word that the center bar is really kicking out walleye, the crappies are still really scattered (we managed 4 for 8 guys) and it is still the funnest lake in the state to fish!

Red glow forage minnows worked the best, and lifting the minnow to get them to chase it and bite out-produced dead sticking. The ones that committed to chasing it bit! I only mananged 3 walleye on deadsticks all weekend... and only one of those was big enough to keep.

As usual, give yourself some distance from the neighboring houses and have a good time!

Good Luck!

Ken

I thought Kelly dropped raw meat on the trail. That is how he got the cougar to come so close.

      Based on Cliff's water temp of 38°F, I'm not too sure about Dec. 3-5.  Think it will be more like Dec. 7-9.  I have ice fever and I need a cure.  Last year's first ice PB of 29", 8½# shown below would definitely cure that, but it may not be until Dec. 15-16 now.

      Hey all,   I'm sure everyone has heard, but we're finally getting some nice freezing weather heading in from up north (https://weather.com/weather/tenday/l/56303:4:US). Early next week nightly lows will be sub 10's. So with ice season quickly approaching, I'd like to know what everyone usually does getting prepared to walk on water. As a newbie to ice fishing (only done it the last two seasons), I'm curious to see how everyone preps their gear and what other things you all do before going out on the ice. I finally got my hands on a nice flasher and power auger to add to the rest of my gear, any suggestions for nifty equipment to help make things easier?    This is open for any discussion on any ice fishing tips for newer fishers! Please feel free to ask questions or discuss your prep process for the season. Let's all hope for this forecast to follow through and get some good ice out there.    -JK

      Forecast temperature-wise looks favorable for ice mid- to late-next week, but it does not look like the winds are going to cooperate.

      Would be nice to get some ice that's for sure. No doubt these forums have gone cold. 5-6 years ago there would be dozens of posts daily just on this thread. Maybe the newness of these forums has wore off or because everything has been hashed over a couple hundred times I don't know. I'm ready for some ice fishing I know that.
