Fishing Report Update

Fishing is Fair!

We are in the process of moving all our Sleepers and Day houses to the South side of Gull Rock.  We have been in our new location less than 24 hours.  We started fishing this area with one house on Sunday and our scouting house got 6 sauger throughout the day.

We have good structure where we are located now, West of Gull Rock.  Yesterday was slower than Sunday. Some only have a couple in the bucket where other Sleepers had 6 in the bucket.

All but one of our Sleepers just got checked in yesterday.  We are going to give this location a few days to see what develops.  West of Gull Rock has been doing good the entire ice fishing season from the weekly reports so we may just have to wait it out a bit and see what comes through!!

We have had a few reports from the 16 mile reef and so far none have been that they have been doing very well.  Our location NE of Gull Rock we were getting fish as late as Sunday where our day house ended up with 6 in the bucket with a Full Day of fishing for 3 people.  Not the greatest but putting some in the bucket.

The bite has been light all season and the colors that have been the best are coming out with pink/gold glitter, blue, and plain hook.

seems like the dead stick is in the lead for catching most.  Have had some 16 – 20 inch sauger’s this year.  Still low on the walleye count, mostly sauger.  Burpit have slowed down also but still we were averaging 2 per house per stay.  A few tulipee’s and we have seen an increase on some nice looking Perch.

There is very few houses out on Arneson’s reef now due to the breaker but there was some good reports coming from Gull Rock to Arneson’s reef of a few people limiting out over the last couple weeks.

We will continue to update you on the fish bite as we receive reports!  Are hope is to reopen the access soon but just have to wait and see what will take place each day for improvements.

Breaker is North of Gull Rock. The breaker is 20 feet wide in some area’s! We have fresh snow fall this morning and it will make it hard for some to see the breaker and of course there is places where you can’t miss it as it is pushed up several feet.
The breaker has not moved over the last 24 hours however the temps in the 30’s doesn’t make ice either!

UPDATED POST FOR TODAY FRIDAY FEB 19TH

Bridge out – Breaker blew up due to warm temp.
Flooding at Breaker.
With the help of the Arneson’s team we had a road plowed and a new bridge put in further West. Unfortunately by 3:00 this afternoon the break blew up and we lost our second bridge.
As of right now we have closed off the road at the Pay Shack and we will start new again in the morning to see what happens over night. Once we get on the lake in the morning we will know more. The only area you will have access is South and West of Gull Rock.
The first bridge was located East of Gull Rock.
Call us at 320-630-7897 with any questions!

Lake Access Update **Bridge is out = Breaker heaved up!!

Bridge out – Breaker blew up due to warm temp.
The nightmare started at 6:30 a.m.  We put belts over the bridge and within 45 minutes the breaker rose over 4 feet.  With that the water started come out over the ice so we had flooding at the breaker that was over a foot deep.  This has not been a fun day.
Only area you will have access to is South and West of Gull Rock.
The bridge was located East of Gull Rock.
