Forcasted cold weather should really help add some more ice and firm up the base we have.
The battle continues! Fishing this past week has seen some ups and downs. Our up’s are decent fishing at times. We do have all 21 houses on the lake. Some have produced some excellent pike and walleye fishing. Our perch bite is slow, but the perch our guests are getting tend to be jumbos. Seems like every day is different, some are pretty good and some are lousy. Our crew continues to work hard at moving our houses daily to new places looking or the best bite in our area. We now have houses in the Doc Hagen’s area, Rocky Point, Military Point, Wolford’s bay, Dome house area, North Creel bay, and mid Creel bay. I have included some photos of recent fish caught from our houses below. The down side is vehicle access. Generally we plow quite a few miles of roads in our area. Due to heavy and very hard snow our trails are very limited. We have some trails plowed in Creel bay, and a good trail in Wolford’s bay. Our Creel roads have been flooding in many places, so they are limited. As ice conditions improve we will venture out with our large tuck to enhance these trails and look for dry roads. Our biggest fears came true on Sunday when one of the guides that work for the Perch Patrol broke through the ice in Ft. Totten bay. All occupants were lucky to get out of the truck before it sank into 40 feet of water. With this being said, we are doing our best to ensure the safest conditions for our guests available. Forcasted cold weather should really help add some more ice and firm up the base we have.
