Mild weather and a consistent bite
Weather has been highs in the twenties and thirties the past week. Forecast is calling for a few more days of the same and then a cool down starting Thursday. 70% sauger and 30% walleye bite right now anywhere from 21’-32’ of water on the reefs, about a 50 minute ride out. Average size has been 12’-19” in size.  Jigging with a brightly colored jigging spoon right off bottom with some flash and noise to it has been working best. 9am-11am and 2pm-4pm have been the best times of day. It is a timid bite but once you get the feel for it, you can do very well.  Vexilars help your success and watch for the suspended fish.  We are seeing quite a few.

Ice Conditions
Auger extensions have been on for a few weeks now. We have 34 inches of ice and making more daily. We should be set until the end of March!

Trail Conditions
Trail conditions are fair. Lake trails are better than the land trails. Warm temperatures and lack of snow fall has made the conditions tough this year. Grooming still continues when conditions permit. An inch of snow is forecasted for Wednesday and Friday. Bring on the snow!
