Most of us will be at the Kewanis Contest on Fish lake Wade. If you dont go down to Cheq save some gas money and come join us. lots of good prizes. Only $25 the day of the contest. There will be 10 FMers drilling all the holes for this event.

Wade, there are also a few of us heading over on Sunday (ice conditions dependent). I drove by there yesterday on my way to the UP and there were a lot of trucks out there, so I think it will be ok. Let me know if we can carpool or maybe meet up.

What are the normal ice conditions on chequamegon bay? I might have to hit that place up next year. I just seen a fishing show where they slaughtered the brown trout and splake (I believe it was splake anyway) through the ice.

Shiner, you got mail now too.

Last week they were driving on it, I was told 14-18" of ice right now.

Thanks Steve.

Hey guys, I left a post in the Chequamegon forum as well.. Still can drive on the ice.. Around Ashland and in front of Washburn... North of Washburn, it is snowmobile and ATV along with foot travel...

Gonna be a brutal one out there today... But a guy could still fish... The temps are not that bad, just the wind and snow...

JB.. Yup, we do pretty good on those splake and browns at times... Lakers, Coho, walleyes, perch, etc etc etc too...

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

      I never made it out Monday was too tired from fishing Friday - sunday didn't feel like getting up early

      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!
