I had the pleasure of taking my father and son up to URL and stayed in one of Kelly's houses. The fish house was excellent, and I thought he was considerate to come by every once in a while to check up us. I would definetely love to come up again.

We only caught two crappies, a few 10-12" large perch, however, caught and landed about 60 walleyes (We kept a daily tab for bragging purposes.) We did not leave the fishhouse like was recommended...perhaps, when my dad is not with us so as not to leave him alone. The camera revealed alot less fish during the daylight hours, so we tried to flash and pound them in with various jigs and rattling type lures. That attracted enough fish which hit the minnows under bobbers. Our main action occured at night. We are night owls anyways so that worked out good. If you can stay up we got into ALOT of fish during three main time periods. 12:00-1:30AM, 2:00-3:00AM, and 5:00-6:00AM. What we did was turn our drags down all the way, until the line pulled out easily , and listened for the drag to work in our sleep. Both crappies were caught in the middle of the night, as were the perch. I didn't expect that. Anyways, we had a great time and will be back!

      Thank you for the zip code, for the last 3 years I lose the tailgator reception at night around 8 I never know what zip code to try I sure hope it works.  All day everything is fine, evening comes I lose signal.

      I used the thumbnail method with all but the heavier split rigs.  If you're doing a bunch it gets sore.  I then use a small eye glass screw driver.  Once I get it started to remove the old one I slip the new one in behind it.  One falls off and the other on.   Careful, those small trebles are hard to hang onto and sticky sharp.

      really neat to see the lake from the aerial view!  Cool to see all the roads and the paths out there.  Kinda fun to look at the road systems and name what resort they are from...

      Was just out on ice and a big difference from yesterday.  Most water has found a hole or two or ten to drain back down.  Minimal water on the lake once get away from the accesses at least on the north end of the lake.  Houses should be fine unless in a low spot with no holes anywhere near.

      Did not like how they ended the reg and OT, they got a shot to go in Reg but in neither situation did it look like we had a plan other than "somebody make a play"... But overall I really like this group.
