We rec'd 9 inches last Saturday and 4-1/2 inches yesterday. Total accumulation in the last week is 13-14". No snow on the ground prior to last Saturday, Feb 24th. Todays winds are directly out of the north at 15-18. We have our plow trucks out - but it is an uphill battle keeping the roads open. If you have access to a wheeler or snowmobile- you're going to have much more success out there. Stop in or call for more up to date conditions. The weather advisory ends today at 6:00pm.

Good to hear you guys are hard at work keeping the roads open for us fisher people. We're heading up to Red either sunday or monday, and I'll be stopping in at Winnie to try my luck with the perch on the way home either tues. or weds. High Banks, is there any chance a guy could get a small road plowed so I don't have to fight to get the wheel house situated before we hit it with the portables and the wheeler? Is there a fee? We were up there the week before the 'eyes closed and did fairly well. I was the one who made you go back in for brochures and a coffee mug when you were getting ready to head to town. How's the perch been going? How far do you have to go out? Any reply is appreciated. Thanks.

I'm glad to hear you didn't get pounded like we did down here. Ive got 27 inches in my yard in less than a week so the 13 to 14 inches sounds pretty good.

I was able to travel on the lakes down here up until last night so hopefully it will be ok next weekend up your way.

Thanks for the report.

Give us a call when you are ready to head to Winnie - we can see what we can work out for you with a road, etc. We pulled our day-use houses off the ice on Wednesday. Most guys the last day or so have been up against this pressure system - so the bite has been tougher. Some perch still coming in though, shallower seems better, using fatheads.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man met me on the lake today and I showed him I am a skilled angler! lol we had a great fish fry! My old man only added one crappie and 5 gills to the bunch

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
