Met up with One Eyed Willy yesterday at The Lure. He stayed in that general area and I was moblie on the ATV. I ended up with one short walleye and he did better with a mixed bag. The ice is good, but the snow and warm temperatures are combining to make some wet/slushy spots. The landing is in great shape, but the shoreline at Longview is terrible! With the current pushing the ice, the late season heaves are here now. This year, there is a heave that runs parallel 5o the shoreline, about five feet out. Crossing any of the heaves out in the lake is a bit risky, as you can sit and watch the ice shove up and break. The fishing is good, as more folks are getting out to the usual hot spots.

Petenwell Sports Shop on County Rd Z just north of County Rd C. That is the place that your asking about and they have a good guide service as well. Also, Jesse at Greenwaterwalleyes is another good guide in the area.

The ice ice about 3" at Longview and about 6" at The Lure. Where it transitions is anybody's guess. It seems the clear ice was the last to freeze up. Fishing was slow, but the lookers we're coming a bit faster. The wind picked up and made pulling the shack back to the truck almost effortless! I have a meeting with the DNR tomorrow, then back on the ice.
