Guys, Planned a weekend to the lake 3 weeks ago, can't believe we still have to worry about ice. Driving 3 hours with my house and don't know where to go. My only local source fishes on the east side at 2 mile reef. Says fishing is good there. Gameplan: Be on the lake at 7:30 Sat morn and fish till noon Sun. Would like to catch some walleyes but get on a few perch during the midday hours. Don't know weather to fish the mud, rocks or gravel or go to where my buddy fishes. Need to be able to drive to the location or probably won't be going. (no atv) Any help would save the trip. Also, need a resort to give me info on a place to access any help. Thanks, Hoppe

Travel is still very limited for trucks and cars. The ice is the worse i have ever seen. You can drive on the main resort roads and thats about it. There are little 2-4 foot brakers everywhere. I would suggest calling ahead to the resorts and get access information. Then use the roads and set up where you can without crowding in on someone. The walleye bite has been fantastic. But coming up with the thought of driving to spots you want to fish just wont happen this year. It really sucks but with the way the fish have been biting i would still come up and fish.

I was driving my truck to our shack at 2 mile out in front of Liberty Beach this last weekend and the roads were ok. A little trouble near shore where they needed to redirect the road after some new cracks but the road was well marked and smooth. Actually saw some trucks driving to 3 mile. Didn't sleep well with all the ice cracking!
(fishing was great!)

      Good bite in the East end this weekend.  No big ones but lots of eater size walleyes coming to the boat.  Even got a bonus chewy, gave my seven year old all he could handle!

      Saturday we hit the South Shore in 30-60' for water.  Multiple hits and releases off the boards, dipseys, and downriggers but no hookups. Went something like 1 for 10 with a nice 29" walleye taken off a pink Husky Jerk and 3 oz of lead on board line.  Marked quite a few fish throughout that depth.

      The pictures were from Amazon, if you can't find it locally.   Jann's Netcraft has a lot of that stuff also. Comes in a variety of thicknesses/strengths.   Some folks use crimped sleeves especially with the thicker stuff.

      Yup!  14 will get cut, as will 20 from time to time.  I’ve run enough different fluorocarbon to get to the conclusion 20 lb is the best combination of fish ability and pike protection for the gear I use.  Anything less and the bite offs are easy.  Anything more and the stiffness kills the action too much and is hard to tie.   I’ll be looking for those leader materials you posted though.  I need something like that for a couple muskie rigs I want to experiment with.

      Vermilion is in low 70's

      A decent pike will bite through 20 pound flouro in a heatbeat.  Certtainly 14 pound like happened to me yesterday....

      Still a good bite on the rocks, just fewer humps having fish. Takes some searching to find a group. However, the fish still on the rocks are biters...and some big ones. I've been spending part of each day pulling cranks with lead core or flat lining and that is putting lots of fish in the boat also. I'm not seeing the huge schools in the mud anymore, just pods here and there but very fishable. Also catching some jigging. The water is amazingly cool still...below 70 every morning off the south shore. It has been a while since so many fish have been hanging within a few miles of the south shore. Boats are scattered over a huge area from around 28 feet and out. Sure nice not having to make long runs all the time. Fall fishing could be terrific this year with all the fish still on the south side. Forgot to mention the lack of algae blooms. Can't remember a year without major blooms by mid August. Good luck
