think i'm gonna head up the saturday before super bowl weekend........that looks like when the weather will be ok, or nicer. i'll probably head back the friday or sat of super bowl weekend.

my plans at this point is to head over to gunderson for a couple days with the spear shack. try for crappies on peterson, maybe a day or 3/4 of a day on bowstring????

yea i could get into getting together one day.  :happy1:

Glenn, I  have gone through  Geigers a bunch of times. Nice people, they will try to send a person in the right direction. Last year I tried Bowstring Shores, also very nice people. I hear there are some drifts on Bow that are tough to get through. There last report was a few perch and walleye being caught but the crappie fishing is slow. Hopefully next week I will get up. Last two weeks didn't work out.    :happy1:

 Thanks merc.  Not sure why but I like going off the 35 access head to the left and sit out in front of this blueish green house and houseboat. :mad1: try to find about 20 ft of water. We got some nice crappies there once, and if course caught 2 nice out of season eyes. :pouty:

Talked to the new neighbor ~ 10 this morning, he's got an appt next Thursday down there & plans on heading up early that afternoon. Sounds like his youngest is coming up this weekend & planning on checking out Winnie through Highbanks. I told him that Geiger's was letting the big houses & trucks out there too.

The north end has always been best for us over all and that's where I come off of if possible. We normally fish deeper like 26 to 30 feet. Perch we have to be shallower. The last couple years have been tough, got a few but slow.

I took the sled out on the bay for a quick lap yday & came across a couple spots that looked kinda slushy. Never seemed to affect my ride but I didn't stop & check 'em out either. Told Chris that I'd been out here & down to the NW access & that it looked like quite a few where out on Bowstring. She said that's a popular place to go out but went on to mention that there was still issues with slush in some places so travel was limited some.

The chance for some snow on the weekend has increased too, especially on Saturday when it warms back up to the upper 20's.

The neighbor told me we had ~ 10" on the ground/ lake before we came up & I think he was pretty close. We've had 6-6 1/2 " since so we're pushin 15-18" now & it's crusty. Our wheeler/plow won't handle it very well in the areas we don't usually plow since we don't have chains on it. I will be putting chains on it before it goes on the ice or I'll be using the sled. The neighbor's 'sposed  to be comin up Thursday & I'm thinkin we'll probably go out here sometime this weekend. See how we do & game plan from there. We should talk Monday or Tuesday sometime. You still got our #? Why don't you PM me yours too?

Went over to Geiger's yday afternoon, 15" of ice & not making a lot of ice due to the snow on the lake is what the owner said. He said it would be safe for the neighbors wheelhouse but he recommended unhooking his truck so there wouldn't be so much water after drilling holes. His plow truck had just broke so he wasn't in the best of moods. Told us to call him if/when we got over there today as he might be back out plowing & he'd tell us where he suggest we set up.

His youngest just hooked up to his wheelhouse & headed for Highbanks. It sounded like they plan to stay until at least early Sunday. See how it goes for us today, we may even head that way tomorrow.
