HAPPY NEW YEARS  — Lake level is at 606 and may go up some after the rain we got this morning. We actually had someone out fishing yesterday but I never did hear how he did. There is no reason to think the crappie won’t still be biting right where they were when we got iced up. The lake is pretty well clear of ice right now and the only ramp that might not be ok to use is South Fork. —-There a lot of geese in the area so hunting is still a viable option. Also, archery season still has 2 weeks left so you still have a chance to fill a tag if you want. Youth season is Saturday and Sunday as well.—–If you are REALLY bored gather up the neighbors Christmas trees and bring them up so we can drop them this spring.

Whew…..cold and nasty here this weekend. Lake level is at 603.7 and holding pretty steady. There hasn’t been anyone through here to talk fishing the past couple of weeks as it has been pretty darn cold and windy around here. The only activities going on right now are duck hunting and archery deer hunting. Muzzleloader season starts next Saturday. We did get some snow overnight and that should actually help with hunting even though it was only a couple of inches. The lake is beginning to get some ice in the back areas as some of the duck hunters are having to bust a bit to get to the areas they want to hunt. I don’t believe the ramps are iced in yet, but call us if you are planning on coming out to put a boat in the water so we can give you up to date info. —–If we do get some nice days yet there is no reason to think the crappie won’t bite as they continue to eat all winter. We fished for them all winter when we lived in Minnesota, even through 3 feet of ice.—- I have seen quite a few coveys of quail during my deer hunting forays this fall so there is another opportunity for you to get out and enjoy the outdoors while working off all those holiday treats. That season runs through Jan 15 while rabbit and squirrel seasons run through Feb 15. There is definitely an abundance or squirrels out there so that is a great way to spend the day and get a youngster involved in hunting.——I will be posting info on here throughout the winter, but I won’t be updating weekly as there is just not that much going on. Feel free to call or email us with any questions and we will gladly find the answer for you. Naturally you can just post the question here as well.
