In front of Pub, 30 yards out and drilled some holes, very nice out this morning.fished for about an hour or two caught some let them go... Felt great being out there....Im thinking this time next week we should have at least 10 plus inches of ice... Careful people and good luck
Not a report. I was wondering if anyone knew of a phone app that showed (location by gps) where the channel ran? Only fished at Petenwell a couple of years and always have issues finding exactly where the channel is. Be great if I could stand on the ice and my phone would tell me I’m standing over it. Thanks!

Drove around the "Pete" checking ice conditions yesterday, lake looks to be all locked up with no snow on top. Lake is like glass and very slick, hard to even drill holes with cleats on. Most ice i found yesterday was just over 2" off the west shore. "Long View point there is a large area on the tip of the point with thin ice, like many years in the past you will want to stay away from this area all winter long. Wilderness park ice looks good except for right along shore for the first couple feet, once your on the main portion of ice it looks good. "Caution 10th street boat launch!" looks like the power company had to dig there doc out of the ice, there is thin ice right at the launch with big chunks of ice all broken up! from there towards the dam and east looks to be locked up as well.
Give it time guys,with this weeks cold temps and no snow on top, the ice season on the "Pete" is just around the corner!
Good luck,be safe!

I went to Longview and checked ice. It looks to be froze all the way to The Lure, but not much ice yet. There is the usual heave just to the South, running towards The Lure. There is many an 1 1/2"-2". No snow on top of the ice , so the cold temperatures will be working on it over the next few nights.

Svmfish. I was on Devil's Elbow yesterday. There was good ice from the boat landing to the houses on the corner. I got one dinky perch and there were many that came up to take a look. Very little sign of mant people fishing there...yet. I will be going back out and try some of the places I know farther back.
Svmfish. If you would like to hook up on the Elbow, let me know. There is a lot of of to cover and I could use the help and company.
