Just got back and used a Spider Johnson house (West Wind). We did very well Sun thur Mon nite till the cold front came in. The color was PINK!!! All walleyes are that 14 to 16 3/4 range. We had to CPR 3 17" 1 19 3/4 and 2 18". Tuesday am we had 1 up to the bottom of the hole and it look about 29 to 30. The minnows had to be DEAD. It was are first trip up there and we had a great time. Spider did a great job and West Wind crew and very nice people.

I've heard mixed reports on the day bite. We are going to try 5 miles out, if that doesnt work we are going to try the cribs. Has anyone heard anything about the cribs?

I don't know if i'd bother with the cribs. I've fished 'em in the winter, spring and summer to no avail. Trust me, if they were any good there would be a permanent house on top of every one of 'em. You're best off looking for bottom transitions and other subtle structure changes like that. The name of the game is to keep drilling till you find 'em. It might be the 10th hole or the 110th hole. Stay mobile, talk to the outfitter who's landing you use and try to distance yourself from everybody else.

      I was up there about ten days ago and the snow and lake ice were melting fast.
      The forecast for the next week looks good for making ice.

      Dean iced over today.  Schmidt has ice about 30 yards out then open water. Been a few years now, Pelican may be snappin' again.

      This year started out like last year but starting tonight the temps are nothing like last year. There will probably be vehicles by the 26th. I'm still feeling good about sleds on the 17th.

      Cheapest I've found is Proctor Builders.

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.
