I can confirm that I have 3-4 bars the entire drive from Cook to The Landing. When I winter park at a cabin near CigarGuy, I get two bars way up on the hill but still through the trees. There is good reception out on the lake but I haven't exactly been riding around and pulling out my phone to check my cell reception.
Depending on where you are, you may have 4 bars or none. I have none still, but that's because I'm on the north side of a hill with tall trees between my cabin and the tower.
Something else to just keep in mind here now too is that the deadline to remove permanent overnight unattended shacks is in exactly one month in the southern 2/3 of the state - March 6. Plan ahead and don't let your castle get stuck out there beyond the deadline. The DNR can and will confiscate it on site because I know people who have experienced this.
I heard Green lake by Princeton has plowed roads and truck and castles out there. I will swing by to check it out. Please check the ice conditions for yourself. There is 4-6 inches if slush ice so take that off your totals as that is not very strong.

I want to say thank you to who ever plowed out the access and area along the shore.
Not many people out when I was there and the gills were munching hard.
Most of you know the difference a great rod makes for panfish and I the one I got from Kichler Custom was tweaked for running light jigs. I also went with a
Contrasting color combo on the tip to help my aging eyes detect bites better. I got a couple meals worth for my grandma. I thought I took more photos but I guess I was trying to hide the fact I was putting a smack down on the gills. So many were returned to the water to guard their nests this spring and was keeping females.
