Rough at best, it is difficult to get down roads currently, couple days and I am sure they will be opened up again. A little fresh snow coupled with a decent blow made travel quite difficult to say the least yesterday.

December 31th; Some of our fisherman are doing very good and others are good one day and not so good the next. We had a 16.25 inch perch and a 15.25 inch perch come in. The walleyes and northern are biting good with some fantastic with low pressure systems coming in. The perch are biting on three lakes. Remember, you are always responsible for checking your own ice. If you have a problem with ice safety, it is up to you!   We have about 12 inches of snow in Lehr and big drifts. In the country and on the lakes the snow blew away. I guess it's in South Dakota now. Note; all ice condition reports are only good for when and where they were taken. Other lakes can be different! Driving on ice is very dangerous! Only crazy fishermen do this. Bring a snowmobile instead of a wheeler. With the snow blocking some accesses a snowmobile will get you into some remote lakes. We are driving on almost all of the lakes. We are plowing out most accesses. Good fishing and good luck. Don Patrol 608-697-6910 cell

December 25th; Fishing has picked up. The walleyes and northern are biting good with some fantastic with low pressure systems coming in. The perch are biting good on some of the lakes. Some foot balls coming in. Remember, you are always responsible for checking your own ice. If you have a problem with ice safety, it is up to you! Bring ice picks, a rope, life jacket and a board of about 6 feet long. ND Game and Fish says you need 4 inches to walk on, 6 inches to drive a wheeler on and 12 inches to drive a car on. Remember that the ice on lakes is thicker in shallow areas and can be much thiner in deep areas. Also springs and places that geese keep open late, can make a hazard of there own. Bring a good map of the lake to figure it out. I made a device to check the thickness of the ice, by using a yard stick and attach a three inch "L" bracket by the 1 inch end. Put it in the hole and hold it so the "L" bracket rests on the bottom of the ice. On the top of the ice, read the ice thickness. Using a devise like this ends the by guess by golly ice readings. We all depend on accurate ice thickness reports. It is time to get your reservations in for ice fishing season. We have about 12 inches of snow in Lehr and big drifts. In the country and on the lakes the snow blew away. I guess it's in South Dakota now. Note; all ice condition reports are only good for when and where they were taken. Other lakes can be different!

December 15; Caught a nice limit of walleyes this evening. From15 to 23 inches. We have 12.5 inches of ice. A lot of other lakes have half of that amount of ice. Some of the bigger lakes didn't freeze until last week. We opened accesses to multiple lakes. To dam cold  to move around very much. Very few customers this week. We removed deep snow from the cattails. The soil under was unfrozen. Hopefully they will freeze soon. Some nice perch getting caught but no hot bite yet.

December 10th; We tried fishing today from 1PM to 3PM. Lots of fish on the screen but no takers. We had 9 inches of great ice. Checked the lake near Lehr and found 9 inches of ice. Checked a lake near Wishek and found only 4.5 inches of ice. Got a report on a small lake that produced some 2LB perch. We are geared up now for some serious exploring of the lakes, looking for the hungery fish. Remember, you are always responsible for checking your own ice.

December7th; Kurt and I went out in a ground blizzard today. We checked a local lake for ice thickness and found 6 inches. It will be making it fast this week.  Tomorrow I should be getting some bait delivered. Then Kurt and I will try some of the last years great fishing lakes.  Remember, you are always responsible for checking your own ice. If you have a problem with ice safety, it is up to you!
