February 18th,2017

Last evening and early morning the bite was fair for most in deep and shallow.  During the day the Perch activity was good, but mostly small.  Some reports of 10 -12″ Perch caught in 14-18 feet of water, but not many in numbers.  By 4:00 pm I was already getting texts on my phone of big Walleyes being caught so the afternoon night bite is the ticket.

The snow started melting on the ice today especially in the first quarter mile from shore.  Once farther out not so much.  Right now it’s freezing a little so it will slow the process down a little tomorrow. And the weather reports says below freezing again tomorrow night.

Sunday at noon I am  pulling the bridge off the pressure ridge until after the rain Monday, so any Wheelhouses out past it from our place have until then to get across it to the shore side.  I will not deal with anyone crossing it in the weather and rain predicted.

Towards the end of next week a cool down is coming and a possible snowstorm. Some reports showing it could be a big one. It’s supposed to start Thursday eve and end Friday evening if predictions are right.  Some predictions are 12 inches plus, but it is too early to tell.  Our Lybacks/TWP Tournament is going to happen one way or another, so plan for it.

Keep a Tight Line!!    Eddy
