glenn,

fished winni on friday out of highbanks. we went out to about 30 fow and did decent. Spent about 3 hrs on the lake and kept 10 nice size perch. could have kept a couple more but was looking at just keeping the nicer ones. Did not get into water any shallower than 20'.Most of our success was in 28-31'. Travel on the lake was good. You can get around everywhere with a 4x4. Highbanks also had a really nice road.

With the warmer weather you guys are starting to get i would think the fish would be in shallower this weekend. I would not start deep this next weekend. I would fish shallow and work out deep. Just my two cents

Here's the latest...weekend temperatures were ranging in the low 50's. The snow cover on the lake is melting quickly. The initial 1/4 mile on our road is wet and sloppy, but past that it is clear. Many successful groups were coming in from Perch Bar. Hitting it either right on top of the bar in 21 fow or directly at the bottom of the break in 30 fow (nothing going on the break itself). We'll give you a copy of the map for our roads at the time that you check in to the lodge. See ya this weekend!!

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later

      Lets say you have 1.5 ah batteries now and you drilled one and a half holes per battery. Unless that ice was 50' thick, have dull blades and your auger is 8, or bigger that's not a drill you want to put more money into.  So give us some info on your auger and how many in lbs of torque is your drill?
