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.

      I was to Graceton a couple of times and saw the boats but never saw the fish. I really like that are but missed it this year. Bouncers in reeftops is hot as heck right now. Lemms was loaded with big biters yesterday. Good plan. I have been jigging out in the mud, more and more fish out deep every day. Good luck

      Hey Curt, not me. But I might get over that way tomorrow as I'm coming up this afternoon. Depending on the wind, I hope to go reef hopping pulling bouncers rather than trolling. I'm curious if the big school is still sitting over east of LP, more or less in front of the Graceton cut. It was a big bunch of fish. A week or so of stable weather would sure be nice. The only  time the wind seems to blow from the same direction for more than a day is if it is somewhere out of the north.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff
