Despite the wind and 20 plus below temps the bite was good for most out there overnight. Both shallow water and deep. Heard of a 27-1/2  Walleye, a 35 plus Northern and other Walleyes in the 17 to 25 inch range.  Today there were some pretty good reports of Perch activity in some basin areas.

The pressure ridge/crack is now a 2 ft wide crack again and I’m sure with the warm-up it will close up and probably heave before the weekend is out. So we are going to stay away from it yet for awhile.  Next week we will have got the 30 foot addition to our bridge done and will have a 60′ plus long 12′ wide bridge that should take care of it.  So we will see how that goes when we get it out there…

For now we are letting tandem axle wheelhouse and 1 tons go as we have an average of 18 inches.  Some areas are closer to 20 inches so if everyone keeps the speeds down we should be ok from here on out.  One thing I want wheelhouse people to do when they come here.  If you haven’t been here before, get here and out on the ice before dark.  it’s easier for everyone involved.

Keep a Tight Line!    Eddy
