The ice conditions here are good. We had a fair amount of water on top of the ice on Monday but on Tuesday most of it was gone. The ice itself is still over 2 ft thick and not breaking away from the shore line at all. We have a preassure ridge about 1.5 miles out and we're suggesting that everyone stay on the East side of it. If you have a house on that side still and would like to get to it, stop in the baitshop and we'll let you know where to cross the ridge.
The walleye report is not bad. The 8 to 10 ft water is producing some fish during the day and even better after dark. Right away in the morning as the sun is coming up has also been decent. It seems the dead sticks are doing the best. Bright colored jigs with a fat head or shiner work well. Getting out and being mobile will also help your chances at finding fish.
This Sunday is the last day of Walleye season until May so its time to get in that last trip!
