Saturday evening was quite a night out there when the wind picked up at dusk. It blew a consistent 20-25 with some gusts reaching 40 mph I would guess. I went out about an hour after the wind started and banked fresh snow around the rentals and there was times while I was out it was a whiteout even with the less than 1 inch of snow we had. Reports from renters when they left,.. sometime between 1am. and 3am. it really blew. But all went well and everyone told Cindy how warm and comfy they were out there during all of it when they left this morning. And the next few days we are going to make some ice!!
Most fishing reports were of pretty good action until dusk when the front went thru. then overnight is was one here and one there. Most activity this weekend for both Perch and Walleye were in 14-20 feet of water. and 26-30 feet of water in a few spots on the Tundra. Numerous Walleyes reported from 24-28″ in the houses. Not much for Northern Pike this weekend except for a 46″ caught and released on Friday. Tonight is the first evening since before Christmas that we have no one on the ice. and with the weather and wind chill warnings I’m feeling good about it. It’s nice to just sit and relax for a bit. Plus it marks the end of the first good “Christmas Week” we’ve had in a long time. Maybe it’s a sign of a good year on the ice!!
Don’t forget!! Call the office and check-in with last years ticket if you didn’t take a refund, (last year we canceled it due to weather), or sign up for the Lybacks/TWP Tournament on February 21st!!
Keep a Tight Line!! Eddy
