Just called up to morris point today cause we're heading there in the morning and they advised us to bring snowmobiles if we wanted to go off the roads much.

I wouldn't advise any offroad travel with anything other than a snowmobile. Was out there ten days ago and got stuck several times just to get a quarter mile from the main road; then the blizzard hit and the roads drifted shut. Went out the next day by snowmobile but couldn't go more than 10 mph because there were three foot drifts everywhere, packed hard as concrete. With a truck you'll drive on top for a few feet and then fall through, and then you're really stuck. Tough going until we get some warmer weather and those drifts melt down.

Had a friend who was up there this last weekend. Bablers have a new road plowed. LOTS of snow offroad (they got stuck). (Big time I guess) "Stay on the roads" was his advise...

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
