Hi All,
 I hope everyone is done shovelling and can get back out fishing.
 Has anyone went on or broke trail at Collingwood?
Iím just hoping I can get to the shack this weekend.

Its nice to hear about locals in different villages around the lake pitching in and clearing some snow for the rest of us anglers who don't live at the lake. I think collection boxes are a great idea. I was out at my shack yesterday, had to blaze a trail the whole way. We made it, but it was a tough pull for the truck. I always move my shack at the end of the day and I could barely budge my shack. With the deadline of the 15th quickly approaching, I'm sure lots of guys will be pulling their shacks off this weekend. Hopefully there are guys out there willing to give guys a hand this weekend as I'm sure there will be plenty of guys having issues getting their shacks off. I'll be out Saturday and Sunday with shovels and tow straps willing to lend a hand where I can. Good luck this weekend everyone, play safe and tight lines!

High house launch is open now. I pushed all the snow with my side by side and then broke trail across the lake with my truck. Itís about 10Ē deep but still soft yet. Definitely need a 4x4 truck to go. I think Sunday will be the last day for the shack on the ice. Be safe out there!!

We hit Midway today and access was good the Durango went wherever I pointed her. 12 to 16 inches of snow with the odd deep drift We tried out in front of the Midway road but it was slow I only caught 1 perch there. Headed south to where I fished last week and toughed it out for a few walleye and a couple of perch.

Was looking back at my pictures and this time last year the Burbot were feeding hard. This year only caught 1 so far I think.

Anyone on here headed out tomorrow to the Liberty Derby at Triple T or Hendersonís? If so will see you there. Usually a good turn out with good prize money and prizes as well. Sounds like the raffle this year is for an 8Ē Ion X auger.

We got on to Collingwood today, pitting ourselves against the wind and accumulated snow. It was a hairy chested, four wheel drive affair with a small feed of big perch as reward. No country for old tires. Tow straps and shovels were deployed.

If you think Collingwood is bad try the north end. Much more snow plus some deeper drifts to make things fun. I never got stuck but when making my own trails almost came to a stop on one drift. The pike fishing made up for it though and what a nice sunny day it was.

I just want to say thank you to whoever cleared a road on the lake at highwood beach over the weekend. Having that road made taking the shack off the ice today very easy.

Fished Wednesday afternoon at Midway and came up empty handed. Good access and some good trails to get around but with a 4x4 you can go where you want if those trails aren't leading you in the right direction. Just to bad the fish weren't co-operating, oh well we'll give it another try on the weekend. Good luck everyone.

There are a few trails out here that can be followed out. I had it in 4x4 and didn't have any issues.

Has anyone tired Pelican Pointe' or at Rowan's recently for burbot?
If so, can you get on with a 4x4 and is there any burbot action to be had?

Sure would like to find some this season, but, time is running out, fast. :whistle:

Ww.... was out wed got one burb and 1 small pike in 3 hours so took off to my pike spot and slow as hell.    This am got to the lake after my son's soccer game about 11 and went to pp again to see if the showed up.  Talked to a few guys and really slow. None on the ice waiting for the knife from what I could see. So me and my son didn't bother and went to chase flags else where.    Trails there are some. Breaking trail sucks as the temps don't allow the snow to pack it down and stick.  Tires just spit it out and it's not sticking to the ice so makes it real fun.  I asked my son if we could make it to our spot with out getting stuck ... he said yes I said no .... I was right in the end 6 different time I had to get out and shovel lol. End result of the day 5 Flags and 3 nice little piggys all back in the lake to make some more fat little piggys one day.

Made it on at Etter's today. Didn't get stuck, but 4WD was a necessity. We had three periods of action fishing for pike and burbot in the shallows. It never got really hot, but the evening was the best. We had around a dozen flags, and my partner put three on the ice. I on the other hand, discovered the line on my tip ups was well past its best before date. The fishing gods made certain to punish me for my carelessness.

Is there anywhere that the cisco bite is decent? Still trying to check them off the list, my 8 year old boy is too. Tried Etter's in January my girlfriend got one and we got a couple perch but we did not hit the tullibee like we hoped. Have a 4x4 with decent tires. Could try Etter's again if the snow isn't real bad.

Thank you

@spoxick Nice Fish!  Glad you found some after all of your shoveling.

@WW I'm hoping to get out tomorrow with jpicks for some burbs too, but the weather forecast looks brutal.  -30 to -40 w/windchill tomorrow.
