Guys we have talked to the last couple days have said the travel conditions are much better now. Most of the snow has been knocked down, and there's not nearly as much standing water on the surface of the ice as last week, so it's not quite as sloppy.

Nice perch being caught north of the narrows in 30 to 40 FOW. You might only catch 3 or 4 one day, then 15 to 20 the next. Good number of them are in the 10 to 13 inch range.

Couple end of the month reminders.

Your 2013 fishing licenses and ORV stickers expire at the end of the month.

Permanent shacks also need to be off the ice at the end of the month. From what I've been told, there will be no push back of the date this year. If you need help getting your shack off the ice, here are the numbers of a couple people that can help out -

Mike 906-420-3088. Said he's "dependable and on time." Has a tracked quad and portable jack hammer, (handy if you're shack is iced in.) $50

Corey 906-553-8412. Has a tracked side by side.

If you can get to your shack, but aren't able to tow it off the ice, be sure it's up on blocks, or at least not frozen into the ice. If it appears "ready to move," and your name and address are legible on all sides, you'll PROBABLY be less likely to be hassled if it's still on the ice after the 31st.

Still sounds like quads and sleds are the best way to get around, especially if you want to fish the area north of the narrows, (where they've been getting the better perch.)

EyeSlayer, I was out with my truck yesterday (wed), but only far enough to pull two different friends off that were stuck. One made it to Butlers island, the other only half that far. I did see one other CAR far east of butlers that was stuck and abandoned. I think ATV travel would be fine.

2 of us fished from late morning on Sunday the 23rd through mid afternoon on Wednesday the 26th. We fished deep, shallow, and in between on proven spots from past trips. Very sporadic. Fished seemed to be moving more on Wednesday in the deep, 38' to 42'. We ended the whole trip with 2 legal walleyes, about a half dozen under sized walleyes, about a half dozen nice perch, and actually some white bass too! We ran quads, really had zero mobility issues, ran on the packed down trails from the sleds that exist, then blazed own trail off these in our fishing areas. Further east we went, the deeper the snow. Be back up in 12 days!!
