    We were up for 5 days, and left the lake yesterday. Lucky to get off the lake, and the drive home was sketchy at best. Wondered how it went for those trying to get on the lake, passed lots of wheel houses going North.

    Good luck fishing, was fantastic for us.

    Make sure to stop by the igloo bar on the ice if you’ve never been!

    Was at zipple bay last weekend. Wheelhouse road #3 is where we fished. One day we did decent and the next sucked. Lots of small fish and the preferred color for us was gold.

    Kenmarkee resort just down the road has a good taco bar on Friday nights if your looking for something to eat.

    I left my shack up there and will be heading back up next weekend, good luck!

    saturday morning -22
    sunday morning -32
    monday morning -22 kinda took some of the fun out of it. had some propane flow issues but we never froze. think we figured we caught about 60 fish for the 2 of us!!!!!!! only 2 real walleyes..no eelpout and 2 crappies. seems catching a crappie thereis awefully rare. lotz of saugar!!!! we where out about 5 1/2 miles.

    already planning another trip next Januaury….walleyes supposedly bite better. we went out of zipple bay resort…..not sure the next destination.

    Crappies are rare, but there are more of them being caught in recent years. We have even caught smallmouth there recently which is more rare than crappies I think.
