NO ICE IS SAFE ICE!
It's time to spread the word now more than ever. This year's ice is different than anything we have seen in years past. Ice conditions vary greatly throughout a lake and from one lake to the other. There is a foot of ice here and open water there on some bodies of water. The medium to large lakes are the ones we all must use precaution on. We can't say it enough, the ice is not safe right now. There might be 10 inches of solid ice from shoreline out a couple hundred yards so you jump on your ATV and head out to your favorite mid lake hump. You might be lucky to get there if you don't check the ice as you go. The middle of the larger lakes are still open or just froze over. A couple inches of ice will not hold you and your ATV up. Its been a wierd year for ice making and all we can do is be careful, don't play follow the leader, and just hope for cold weather and no snow. Things will seal up nicely then. For now, we must check the ice and play it safe for awhile especially on those medium to large bodies of water throughout the state.

If you are venturing to Upper Red Lake please call the resorts for up to date ice conditions. It sounds like the ice is getting better by the day up there. Reports from Lake of the Woods look like anglers will be starting to fish the big lake by this weekend. Call the resorts up there for a better report. Be cautious this early ice season. Check the ice and remember 'No ice is safe ice!'

If you are in the market for new ice fishing rods please check out the line from JT Rods. If you have questions or want to test these rods out contact any of the HLO staff members and we can meet up and put one in your hand. You can also order off their website, use the code "banderson" to save a few bucks! JT rods are the hottest rods on the market right now and they are going fast. JT Outdoor Products will be at the Milwaukee Ice Fishing and Winter Sports Show this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

The new Ray's Sport and Marine store in Grand Rapids is now open just south of the old location right on HWY 2. Stop in and see their huge showroom and smoking fall/winter boat and pontoon deals. The new store is a must see!
