Poupy,

Where are you staying at when you get to LOW? I'm also heading up there that day.

most resort have started to let people drive out. There are some cracks that have caused some problems. With this weather the lake can change by the day so your best bet is to call before you go to check the current conditions. The ice is about 16 inches out in front of West Wind.

The kids and I will be up on the afternoon of the 25th. I was wondering if the cracks are too bad to drive on the lake? I have an F-150 with a 12' sleeper house. Does anyone think it will be too risky? I'll have the kids with me that is why I just want to make sure. If that is the case we won't go. We were planning to go out of either hillmans or WW.

thanks!

West Wind put a steel bridge over the largest crack today, so it should'nt be a problem.

Thanks for the info, CS. I really appreciate it. If you are out tomorrow or sunday, look for a blue '93 pickup and an old winnebago pull behind and we should have a cold one for ya! hehe we'll have hot chocolate too..might be more appropriate with the weather!!

Hey rafter we are staying at Schusters my guess is you are going with our group, because most of the big drinkers are from Bricelyn. Doug and are planning on leaving early Monday and hitting URL on the way up.

Labby,

The bite is pretty spotty right now with the majority of the fish hitting during the day,but there is a decent evening bite if you locate fish. Pike on the other hand are going strong, We had a guy today who stayed in one of our sleepers who pulled a 43 1/4" pike through the hole, with a few other nice ones in the 38" range.
