It's been raining today. About the only place we have snow is where it was plowed up. Plus they are talking 50s this weekend. It is going fast now.

Just got off the lake. About 2-4 inches of water on top of the ice. It is SLIPPERY out there!

Thanks guys for your response. I was going up this weekend to check on the place and wasn't sure if I should take the 4X4 or car to get down our driveway. Sounds like the snow for the most part is history.

With the lack of snow, where do people predict the water levels being this spring? Especially Pelican and North Long. Same as Oct., lower, higher?

Pelican is going to eat a lot of lower units this year!! She is low right now, this snow melt will do very little

I agree,,, unless we get alot of rain this spring things don't look good at all.

I thought the rule was an inch of water for every foot of snow........may gain an inch or so....not enough to counter the foot we lost.

That's going to suck. Currently we have 309ft of dock and there was only 17" of water at the end of the dock in Oct. I am not sure the boat will even fit on the lift. Hopefully the water is low enough that the dock will reach the drop off.

Trophy,

Are you on the east side of the lake? A friend lives just north of the public beach and all of last year his dock/lift was useless. That has got to suck paying those lakeshore mortages/taxes and not be able to even dock and use the boat. It is not looking good at all we need some serious rain. Hang in there and pray for rain.

Yeah, we are north of Velvet Beach, part of the big sand bar that comes out. It is going to be a long year if we don't get rain. When we bought the place 5 years ago we had 100ft of dock and we had 40" of water. Scary how a couple of bad years can drop the water that much. Without access to the water the property value really isn't what its supposed to be. Jetskis are even hard to get off the lifts. It will all come back up in due time, but it is hard in the low times.

      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.

      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir
    • monstermoose78
      It’s still a blast to fish
    • Alex wilhelmi
      thank you tom sawyer good to know,
    • Tom Sawyer
      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys

      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.

      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
