The Temps have finally went back down and the water on the ice is gone. We are letting out all vehicles except for 1 tons. We would like to limit those until after Christmas. There is not much snow on the lake so be careful it is very slippery!!! We have two roads marked and plowed now. The original road goes west 3/4 of a mile, then turns south and runs for a mile along the break. The second runs straight west for a mile and a half. There is a pressure ridge from the east shore all the way out to the north shore. Again, use caution and common sense out on the lake at all times, as the ice is still volatile. All of our houses are now out on the lake and available for rental.
The bite has been steady in 8-10 feet of water the past few days with red Buckshots and Rattlin Flyers producing results. Red, Gold, and Pink seem to be working well also. There has been a decent morning bite with the main bite coming right before dark and after dark.
Please use caution when out on the lake, with lack of snow its hard to mark roads. You can not just drive anywhere you want!
