    IMG_1475.JPG IMG_1472.JPG IMG_1488.JPG IMG_1473.JPG IMG_1471.JPG Buddy and I Fished last weekend out of willow beach. Ice was safe for walking but some took machines. I walked out towards some structure out between snake and fox. Fishing was great. Others fishing in closer did well also but I was going for wall hangers. The elusive 15" perch were out there but never got lucky enough to land one. Hooked a couple lake trout. Had to stop my spool before I lost all my line. When they run it's like trying to stop a bus... broke all of them off and that's with 70 yards of line out.. bounced back and forth from here and cooks bay keswick. Fished Monday and Tuesday took work off. Willow was okay for Monday but by days end it was done. Tuesday back to cooks. Hot bite right now is at thorah but very spooky fish and you need to wait them out. 16-17" ers taken out of here....

    Ice was solid on east end.i fished by mc Rae's shoal. Walked out from nearby access. Those walking had no issues. The guys traveling miles by machine may have had issues getting on and off ice. Had to find them on my own ended up getting them right along the south end of shoal. 20-25 fow. Bit in am for hour than at dark for hour. Midday was extremely slow. Ice was 12-15" shoreline was getting soft. If never got above 40 and never got the rain like here
