Coming up this weekend.

8 posts in this topic

My son and I will be coming up this weekend for our 1st trip of the year to the big pond. Last year he had a blast, we rented the day house from Kelly and Jon, and did well. Limit of walleye's and 16 crappies between 3 of us. Anyhow looking forward to a relaxing weekend, catching fish will be a bonus. How far out is the road plowed from Hillman's? Sounds like the rough ice is about 3 miles out from what I have read on the forum, maybe a good place to start? Anything I need to know about the pressure ridges?

Anyhow good luck to all who are fishing this weekend, and I will post a report next week.

The pressure ridges are somewhat dormant for the time being,could change tommorow. At 5 miles their is a little ridge working on the road and following the spur road to the NW but nothing serious as of yet.

Thanks Jon. If you see a '08 black superduty, feel free to stop by and say "Hi". We will be fishing in a clam 6800. Looking forward to getting out the rat race for some R & R up there. I will get the fishing update when we stop by Hillmans and get our bait and some pointers where to start.

Thanks for the info on the pressure ridge.

Good Luck and stay warm.

Bird & Shoogs, I'll be up Fri-Sun this weekend, staying in 1 of Kelly's 6-man sleepers so we'll be off of Hillmans road somewhere. Stop in and we can trade reports
