The weather is supposed to warm up this week later on. I would try zoomers or the humps. They have been doing pretty good up there. If you keep on the move and work a little u schould not have a problem finding them on the sharp breaks is where i would start. Good luck.

We survived the winter blast that moved through yesterday. With minus 70 degree windchills, we closed our access yesterday and reopened it this morning. We have our plow trucks out trying to break through the drifts. Some of our secondary roads running north and south are completely blown shut and new roads will need to be made. Our main road out to the humps remains in fair to good condition. Winds are still blowing today and are expected to taper by this evening. All of our trucks will be out tomorrow in full force. Our goal will be to get back out to Zoomers and Big Island. Feel free to call our fishing hotline at 800-365-2560 for "up-to-the-minute" road/ice/fishing reports. Extended forecast for the upcoming weekend looks mild with temps in the low 20's. We'll look forward to seeing you then. Stop by the lodge the lodge and say "hi", we'll get a map of our current road system and offer you some tips on what to try.

Pikeslayer life is good. I fished the small water a few weeks ago. I did fair I was out on the point one side of the house was in 15 fow the other 19 fow the evening was the best bite i had for eyes and a few slime. The big water was very good to me. I fished the rock pile to the north of the humps got some nice perch. Then we fished the steep sides of a few humps with a pimpel and upside down minnow head the eyes where on the feed bag during the last warm up. We fished 24 fow to 32 fow best bite we had was from two to six. I am going to try to make it up there later next week Good luck up there.

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4

      There was 20 at the site.  I'm not worried about the main sheet of ice, just the access and near shore/shallow areas.   Plenty of ice everywhere else I drilled.

      My kids went out Sat, Sun.  Went from Vermilion to Myrtle lake, said the trails were bumpy, but plenty of snow.  Lake has snow, but pretty slushy.
