Ice conditions held up better than expected. Most are crossing the pressure cracks straight out, or a bit south of marina. Focus for walleye seems to be 18+ feet of water. All normal techniques are catching fish. A lot of chatter about dead sticks and slip bobbers producing good numbers of fish. Be Safe. Good Luck. We do carry perch minnows and propane in the marina store. We appreciate your business.
Northwest winds around 30mph and blowing snow at 9:00 a.m.. Snow beginning to cover ice. Ice conditions unknown at this time.
Unseasonably warm weather pattern is melting the covering of snow that was on the ice, creating a thin covering of water. Pressure cracks are shifting and vary daily. There were a couple of ice rescues last night. Wind picking up considerably during the next couple of days. This is likely to change current ice conditions. Be safe. Don’t forget the spud, ice picks, compass, GPS, and cell phone.
Fishermen are reporting a active crack about 1.5 miles out in 10-13′ of water. Width of crack varies. Strong off shore winds the last couple of days may have opened it. Fish were being caught either side of crack last weekend. Be safe. Good luck.
