   Bring in those big ones we need some new pictures.

Hope you all go to Rose lake and help take out a bunch of Pike.

Remember there is no size limit on the pike  in Rose lake, Diamond Lake and Wells Lake and you can keep 5. This year only one can be over 24"


Ice should be forming soon.


Ice is here but you do need to use care, after Sunday if we don't get too much snow we should be good to go.


Still Ice and going to be cold this week, still a lot of good fishing going on. Hearing a lot of good catches.


Wow what a stretch of nice weather and biting fish. Gills are just getting started at their spawning, some of the best fishing coming in the next few weeks. Spiders and poppers are the hot.


Looking like its going to be a great weekend, stop in and see us on your way to the lake. We have Ice, Pop and Snacks to help towards you having a great day on the ice.


Getting reports of Eyes biting on Rose, Crappies in Sunrise are a good bite as well. This and next weekend are suppose to be real nice, get out and enjoy some good summer time fun.


Looking like a nice week and a nice weekend coming up, stop in and see us and get out on the water.


We will be closed Wed the 31st, be back Thursday. Looking like its going to be a great weekend, get out and enjoy.


Hoping for ice a lot earlier this year. Getting colder we'll see


Still ice out there, just need to be careful. Weather is not doing us any favors.


Guys are getting back out fishing. Use care but don't miss out on the last ice bite, could still be a few weeks left.


The weather hasn't been the best but Gills are moving into the cove and Crappies are heading into their early water haunts.

Good catches of both are being reported. Pike and Walleye are opening soon, don't get caught off guard.



                           Good Luck Fishing 

            But always be careful!
