Was up last weekend. not a lot of snow on the lake but its wind blown and hard. SOME PLACES YOU CAN JUMPF AND GO, OTHERS NO. 4-WHEEL DRIVE would be a must to do that. I think you can get away from the crowds. i was off Adrians road over Pine Island!! Good Luck!

I was out from Morris Point on Sunday and Monday. Just put the truck in 4 wheel drive and shift into a low gear. You will be fine as long as you don't spin your wheels too much in the middle of some drifts.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

    • Wanderer

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
