Not much  going on - only perch and trout are open in the lake. Walleye and Pike are closed.

Lake Condition:

All shanty's are off the lake although it will be a gorgeous week to be on the ice!

The ice thickness is over 24" everywhere and up to 31" in some spots. 

The ice has smoothed right out with only a couple of heaves left. One being at Sin Clair Point. 

Once the warmer weather sets in on Friday it should soften the top layer and make it perfect for riding with enough lubrication for riding and about as fast conditions as we have had all year.

All areas are safe (of course be aware of your surroundings and and use your judgement and common sense)and the shorelines have plenty of snow so get out and burn off that last tank of gas and oil and visit your favorite establishment for what will probably be the last good weekend on the lake unless you are one of the local die hard dare devils. 

And for those of you that don't have a sled the lake is at its lowest level in years - which is about 23 feet lower than the average full level. 

It is a good way to see where the channels are and where the "gotcha's" are come boating season! You may even find a couple new areas that you can go off the beaten path when it fills up you didn't know you could.

Tip of the Week:

Even though your Snowmobile can go 100 mph plus during the day your headlight at night only gives you enough visibility for 60 mph.
