It's true, fishing has been very slow and although there is plenty of ice, getting around out there has been very difficult. I personally have fished off of Hoppies (NE side) Scotties (SW side) as well as Maple Bay, and lots of people fishing with not so many catching. If you have a choice to use a sled or a 4-wheeler, leave the later behind. Deep snow and areas of slush will definitely cause you fits with the 4-wheeler. Good luck and keep us informed of your results.
