Ice conditions continue to improve and with the cold snap coming today thru Friday, any slush or iffy areas will firm up and we should make some good ice.

I've seen up to 8" of ice on some of the lakes, while the biggest-deepest ones still have 3-4 inches.....STILL ALWAYS CHECK THE AREAS THAT HAVEN'T HAD TRAFFIC! Be safe!

Walleye bite remains good for me and my customers, mainly tip up fishing with suckers. I've been targeting flats and weed/grass flats around 18-25 feet of water. Some perch and pike are being mixed in with the walleyes too. Been having a good day bite, but that will change with this week's cold weather that is coming. The windows will shorten, mainly early morning and evening.
