Thanks for any tips.

We ran our sleds last weekend out of wheeleers point. Stayed on the trail as much as we could. We did run up to Oak Island sat afternoon to get get our speed fix. Put on 110 miles on the trail, about 1/4 mile off the trail. Very rough and hard off the trail.

I would guess with the warm weather it's all but over for this year.

Some of the best sled riding of the year is after the snow is all gone, the ice is a little softened up, the standing water is gone. There is still a couple of good weeks of ice riding left unless the weather gets crazy warm.

What I wonder is how you guys on wheelers jump those 20 foot open cracks this time of year?

Lots of sleds running out on the Black Trail Thursday and Friday. ONce you get out to 8-9 mile there is more snow than the area of Pine. It was 51 degrees on Friday and the snow was starting to get pretty tacky, but looked like the guys were having a good ride. At least there were several that went by that were leaving a large contrail LOL. Bill

      still love my setup for bluegills but not the best when I use a size 10 jig and fishin for crappies. I might grab the clam springs and rig a rod up with the wire thats a little stiffer and see how it works. this would just be for deep fish.

      Out Sunday ... Looked like a City of Trucks and Castles ... Bite was slow but managed a few Crappies / sonnies on Plastics.   we lost a nice walleye near the hole on a moon jig and crappie minnow.   Might have to go Perching in the shallows on south side of MilLacs this weekend.  Hey Moose ... what ya using for Perch on Millacs shallows 12-18 FOW?

      Was out after work for a couple hours yesterday and got two walleyes to bite. The Landing is getting flooded out. Was kinda hesitant on driving out after seeing all the trucks parking on Shore and taking the long walk out. With all the black ice out there it was a little spooky but after seeing 17" to 19"of good ice  was pretty comfortable with it

      I will be interested to hear of your experience.  Please let us know.    I think the anecdotal evidence was that the service and quality was not up to the premium price, although that could be old news.     "fine dining" has been a tough sell on the lake.   Several places have tried and failed that I am aware of.

      Only fishing for crappies. With a baby at home only get a few hours after work to fish.
