Today I was on the ice at 5:00a.m. opening up roads and getting ready for the weekend coming.  A few fishermen went out and I didn’t get a chance to talk to many to see how they did so it is a mystery today.

The snow covered up the ice somewhat and I’m hoping it will stick.  It should help the ice calm down little so it won’t react as much to temperature changes.  The ice depths are getting better and I’m planning on letting tandem houses with 3/4 ton or less trucks go out for the weekend. There will be a information sheet given to all wheelhouse people that i am going to make tomorrow morning of some things I expect them to do on the ice out of here.  After seeing how things went last weekend there is a need for it.

Tomorrow we are going into the deep freeze for 24 hours and then the warm up is going to start. Temps are predicted to reach the low to mid 30’s next week so I guess we are going to have our “January thaw”.   Not sure if I like it, but it is what it is. It will be nice to be out there fishing in temps like that though.

Keep a Tight Line!    Eddy
