Latest from Laurie

Laurie Murphy:

Although The Knee Deep Club cancelled their ice fishing contest for February 10th, following the warm spell and rain,  there was still plenty of fishable ice. Some shorelines were compromised and refroze, and the main lake remains open, but  Most coves are still covered with 5 to 7 inches of ice. Having a snow day from school , Max Hughen fished with some friends and caught himself  crappie, the largest weighing  in at 1 lb 15 oz. His yellow perch weighed 1 lb 15 oz also, breaking the junior Knee Deep Club record of 1 lb 12 oz. His dad’s crappie weighed in at 1 lb 5 oz.  Reports of pickerel, perch, bluegills, and crappie are coming in steadily. We are open early at 6 AM. We are still pretty well stocked with tip ups, jet sleds, ice jigs and jigging poles, and carry shiners, wax worms and spikes for bait. Have a great week...=
