A bunch of us are heading up there on the 29th and i was just wondering if anyone has any recent reports. Also wondering if need to bring sleds to get off of the trails or if truck is good enough. Any info helpful. thanks

Was there over the weekend, just fishing from a rental (me and a friend each brought our dads up, so we didn't want to mess w/ portables). Fishing was pretty slow, but we managed to catch enough for meals each night. A glow red forage minnow jig on a set-line w/ whole fat-head about 6" from bottom was the best producer, followed by just about any glow spoon for jigging (except the buck-shots, which seemed to scare more fish off than they caught). I'm sure the fishing would have been better off the roads, but with the temps and winds, I'm glad we were in a nice warm rental. As for fishing off the roads, you'll need sleds after the wind that was there over the weekend. On Sunday morning, it took 3 trucks plowing almost non-stop just to keep the road open enough to get on/off the lake. Hope this helps, and good luck up there!

Thanks for the reply. hope the fishing picks up a bit in the next 2 weeks which it should. If not we'll have to do some scouting. 14 of us coming up in portables spread out should be able to find some fish. Kind of my pre wedding fishing trip.

      I use my 1660 Lund Pro-V Tiller for fishing Superior all of the time. I have 2' of track on both sides to hold my 4 aluminum rod holders and my triple trees. If you start using magnum dipsys with the ring they can pull hard enough to break most plastic rod holders. In the spring you are basically fishing the top 15' with plugs so any rod holder will do. Once you start trying to get to 40' and beyond is when you need to beef things up. I also have a mast and use the single big boards that Marine General sells for getting a good spread with you plugs. Once summer rolls around I will use Yellow Birds with 5 colors of lead on the outside  and dipsy's with 65lb Power Pro or steel depending on what depth I am trying to achieve to pull spoons or flies.

      I see that the Royal Dutchman website had a blurb a couple days (2/17) ago that said nothing was happening yet, they also don't know how thick the ice is.  As usual hoping for a long spring season before it closes for walleye.  On a positive note most of the snow must have already melted with the record warmth so maybe won't be so much to cause runoff later on?
