I’ll make this update as brief as possible, as not much has changed as far as ice thicknesses go compared to our previous reports. Having said that, the milder weather and wet snow has created more wet slush on the surface of the ice or under the previously existing snow. This weekend’s extreme cold we expect to greatly help freeze up those wet slush locations, but until that happens, pulling a sled or portable will be a tad more challenging in certain spots. We are still VERY comfortable walking to all of the locations we have been to, but are not yet driving our 4-wheeler.
We more than likely will not be doing another ice check until Monday at the earliest, to give the slush on the surface a chance to hopefully freeze, so we can give a more detailed report. If we change our minds, we’ll certainly update as best we can. We are keeping our fingers crossed that the extreme cold this weekend and early next week will make some positive changes to the ice so we can hopefully bring heavier equipment out later next week. Being patient has been difficult, but necessary this winter! In the meantime, we’ll continue to be here for your fishing needs this weekend from 8 am to 5:30pm, and next week Monday thru Friday from 9:30am – 5:30pm. Happy Fishing!
