We’re just having a ball up here!! Last chance for launching with a courtesy dock coming soon. A bit icy this morning... doable 4x4. Just be prepared next week. A1 is slick down the back side of the summit. I had 12F this morning at the house in spalding. Full moon coming quick. No rush. Biting all day. Orange, cinnamon, fiery rust trolling flies are still hammering them. Olive early but slows down ... doesn’t matter where. Troll outta the gate & either direction. Just stay on top....upper 10 ft or best upper 5ft of the water column no matter the depth. Trolling speed at 1.7-2.7 mph. Surface temps 41-44F in the south basin. Ice forming over the north basins early... melting out by day. Shoreline ice present north basins. South basin remains clear. West side remains one of our top producing areas for quality fish.

Also hot orange,olive, peacock, & cinnamon leech trolling flies. Pretty much a solid bite. The algae can throw them off. Look for cleaner water & find...... Read More
