Went on Saturday- interesting road the last mile:

We enjoyed the calm water for one hour when we got there.

After that we dropped the anchor to stay in one spot. The wind didn't even let up all day until about 7pm.

There's still some ice on the lake near the west shore.

We had to post a 24 hour watch to keep an eye out for the icebergs!

Actually they were kinda purdy up close.

Wished I would've had the long lens when this guy came down to grab a bite to eat. I also used auto settings on the camera when I saw him coming real fast. Wasn't that great of an idea. So the pics are what they are.

The parting shot of Hood on the row back to the ramp.

The actual ramp and parking lot is not open yet- Not plowed- FULL of snow- campground full of snow- not plowed yet- although the plow is sitting at the entrance to the campground. Had to launch at the rental "ramp".

Oh yeah- the fishing...... not that great- caught 22-10inchers on bait and casting a rapala minnow, bingo bug and panther martin. Heard of one BIG fish caught.
