How big of a boat? The landings should be good enough for any normal fishing boat, heck there was a 40 foot houseboat 'thing' on it a couple years ago. Be careful of the sandbar that stretches across the west arm, and the various rockpiles. When the water is low like it probably is you can damage a prop pretty easy. And they really aren't marked well on any map I have found. Lindy rigs always work well, and jigs will work as well. You will know where most of the spots are because boats will be all over them. Look at a map and find the small humps they are all over the lake, try those and the area just east of the sandbar is good also. Good luck, I won't be up there for the first time in ten years but there are some nice 'eyes in there.

      Good for him making those signs I enjoy his views in a nutshell!

      Access is in good shape at Hole in the Day.  Ice is in good shape and travels MUCH easier than last year.  But that was due to slush getting rutted and refrozen.  These warm temps might play that way again.  But for now all is well. Fishing though... the evening walleye bite was short like usual but finicky for us.  1 - 14 inch eye iced and one other lost.  Set line and shiner was responsible for the 14.  The hooked and lost fish was on a spoon with minnow head but I had to let it hang still for the commitment.  I had several other lookers but they just wouldn’t eat it.  Two lines became one but no bump!  Nice day to be on the lake.

      Been past there many times, never was able to read the whole sign since slowing down could get a guy run over.  Thanks.

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.
