Lyback's, Appeldoorn's, Hunter's to name a few. Lots of areas that still have roads. You have to watch what you're doing off the roads, there are some decent sized drifts but you can get around if you pay attention. We've only found one area where we needed the extension so far, but it's close in a lot of areas, I'd bring one.

there has not been any melting so far this year, so to answer your question, yes, there is still alot of snow on top of the ice. they are guessing the temps will be in the high 30's to low 40's this week. that should bring the snow pack down some. don't forget a shovel if you plan on going off road, as you will hit a drift or two that will be deeper that you thought............tom fellegy

i was out on suday. cross country travel is doable, but use your head. the snow is very hard, hard enough to drive my isuzu rodeo on without any trouble. watch for hidden drifts and like said, bring a shovel.

i had the extension, but didn't run into any areas that i truly needed it. i'd bring it just in case.

the resort i went out of didn't have any of the side roads to the south cleared..

With that SUN shining, it feels a lot warmer. With no wind it IS warm out there. Nothing like standing or sitting outside on a warm/not windy March day. Oh yea reel in a few Jumbos too.

      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir

      It’s still a blast to fish

      thank you tom sawyer good to know,

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys

      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.

      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
