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!

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.

      Fished Cannon lake this evening. I bounced around from 12-5ft of water and started to mark fish in 8ft so I set up there until dark. I saw a bunch of fish come in for a look but not one nibble. Tried every color and style spoon and jig I had but nothing.

      Best thing you can do if you won't be around is to put the house on fresh ice, don't drill any holes, and put it on blocks.  When people get into trouble is if it gets windy and they have open holes under the house, that rain starts blowing around on top of the ice, and starts swirling down into the holes under the house....that swirling water EATS ice, and can sink a house pretty quick.     As as far as the ice on the lakes, if you have 14-15 inches of good ice like most places around, you'll have no worries if you do what is posted above.

      Rented a sleeper out on Garrison Bay Sunday night with some friends. Fishing was slow but we managed a few walleyes. Best went 23" on the rattle reel. Was a lot of fun though, wish the bite could have been better. How is everyone else doing out there? Any good bites or has it pretty much slowed down for everyone.     Here is a video of the trip:
