21-24” and smooth
i rode the entire lake last Saturday before the snow storms. A lot of the heaves have flattened out since then – now that the ice has gone back down. The lake has become very smooth except for a couple of the big ridges which are visible over by Lanzi’s on the Lake and Sin Clair Point and another one back by Bunker Hill/ HRBR. Other than that the lake is very smooth.
we had 2 snow storms since and got a perfect amount of snow. With the last one riding was good. 4- wheelers and side x sides could still get through.
Now we have 1 1/2 feet of snow on the ice. It’s jond of like riding s jet-ski on a snowmobile. It’s a lot of fun actually! We haven’t been able to do this for about 3 years!
Now, 4wheelers and side x sides are not able to get through unless you plow or have tracks.
As I am giving this report we already have a couple of inches of new snow and visibility is about0 as it is coming down hard! It should settle out Nicky with a bit of sunshine
Tgere is no slush under the snow which makes riding great!
Walleye are running good and about 16-17”
They are hitting in the morning and after 4 in the afternoon, not much fitting the day.
Perch are really hitting well. Size is good.
Northerns Are running steady too. The fishing holes are awesome-above average. Trout are coming a bit too.
Tip of the Week
Have a heated shield or else you are not going to be able to see where you are going.
