Road access is open to gas trucks and single axel wheelhouses.   The change from 40 degrees down to -20 in one day opened up more cracks which we are currently bridging.   In this extremely cold weather, ice becomes very brittle and can be dangerous; 5 MPH speed limit by our bridges and 10MPH on the main roads – Anyone driving faster will be asked to leave.    Our main roads are in good condition so I recommend staying on the road infrastructure which goes to the flats.   Off roading is risky as brittle ice can crack and open and there are pressure cracks that are hard to see so please stay close to our roads to insure your safety.   The bite has picked up somewhat but you still have to work for them as a significant yellow perch hatch is keeping the walleye well fed.   Dead sticking with a shiner or jigging with the head of a fathead with glow orange or green on small spoons produces the best results.   The breaks have been performing as well or better than the flats off the deep ends at 28-31 feet of water and fish of many year classes have been caught; all which look very healthy.   -20 temps over the weekend so stay warm and be safe.   Keep road traffic to a minimum early morning until our ice team checks roads for any new cracks at 6:30 am.   Have a great weekend and please share your fish pics!
