Looking at going up Monday the26 - Wednesday the 28th -- Any suggestions on where to stay?

I have called a number of places but no call backs yet.

We have heard good things about Kelly and we stayed at Hillman's two years ago -- We met a guy on the l;ake with a plow truck, I think. My Hillman experience was good. The nice older gal in the store said to buy the glow red jigs and one guy laughed at her but I said thanks and bought them I had 8 crappies before by buddy broke down and asked for one of mine.

BTW -- will the weather turn the fish on?

Any thoughts

Check out Chad Benson, I just stayed with him this past weekend. He said that his weekends are booked but his week days are pretty open. We had great service and caught fish!!! Really nice houses as well.

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
