Went out of hunters on tuesday morning around 10:00 am. This week I was running solo since my dad couldn't make it. Got the wheelhouse set up on top of the mud for the evening bite. Set up in my portable out deeper hoping to get some jumbos before evening. Didn't have the same luck on the jumbos as we did last week. At 3:30 got situated in the wheelhouse. Not a bite untill 5:30. Then I caught a nice 17" eater and lost another on the way up. I also released a 22" eye. All of these fish bit within 10 minutes and then nothing. The next morning woke up at 6:00 but did not get anything till about 7:00. Ended up getting 3 more eaters between 16-19" and a 13". The last fish I caught before packing up was a healthy 25" eye at about 9:00 am. All of these fish hit on a 1/8 oz silver buckshot jig with a minnow head. There were more fish on the vex but these are the ones that I convinced to bite. Also missed one fish on the set line that took off so fast it almost pulled my rod down the hole. Must have felt the rod and let go cuz nothing there when I set the hook. I was fishing out on one of the many mud flats out past blue jug. Will be heading back up on Monday and Tuesday for my last trip of the season. Then I guess I'll have to head to Lake of The Woods and get the boat ready for the rainy river. Good luck to all.

      I know this is an Ice Fishing thread, but I can't seem to find much information on ice condition on the lake or how the snow looks out there and on the trails. I live down in the Duluth area and was thinking about coming snowmobiling up there this next weekend. Seems the whole states in a stupid heat wave. But you guys had more snow than us before, was wondering if there's still enough to snowmobile.

      LOTS of traffic on the Hole In The Day access over the weekend.  It degraded noticeably from Saturday to Sunday.   There are two paths heading out.  The one going straight ahead has a bit of a ridge at shore that longer houses/low clearance vehicles might have a little trouble with.  The one to the right is angled and doesn't have the ridge but developed a hole at shore Saturday night.   I'm hoping it doesn't get any worse but probably will before the weekend.  We were planning on being out overnight before the contest but plans seem to be changing.  Especially since it was reported that a vehicle went through by Hunters Point over the weekend.  Hunters Point is on the Southwest side of the lake but makes my wife leary of taking out truck and house back out even on the Northeast end where the contest is.   Sorry for the bad news.  I'm still crossing my fingers and will check the access again this week.

      Very nice fish! Thanks for the heads up on the ice cleats. Do you know how the access is holding up with this warm weather ?
