The North Woods has superb winter conditions out there now, with mostly driveable ice thickness and absolutely great snow conditions.
This sets us up for a great Christmas and New Year’s holiday season for the first time in a number of years. If you want to be outdoors, you’ll be able to do whatever you want.
There is a little slush on the ice now on some, but not all, lakes. It is nothing like last year, though. The ice is getting thick enough to almost require a power drill rather than hand augers.
fishing has been very good on most lakes, with the fish for the most part in a little deeper water.
