Breezy and warm (upper 40s) both days this weekend. It cools down a bit early next week before we start the cycle of above freezing during the day, and below freezing at night. Nothing in the way of bitter cold in the extended forecast taking us to the close of walleye season. The travel conditions have vastly improved on the lake and both wheelers and sleds are moving around fairly well, there are still many slush pockets to avoid, but conditions are far better for travel than last week. We are getting lots of reports on increased gas hole activity so please keep your eyes open as we move into March.
Along the north shore, we are seeing folks working in the 20-30 FOW range with others coming in to water even more shallow. A lot of reports of folks picking through a lot of shorts to get a limit of walleye, perch in the mix as well. Many folks report finding the eyes, but not being able to get them to bite and needing to hop around to several spots to get a decent catch.
