PHIL'S WEATHER REPORT
Monday, March 27
Still ice on the lake and snow in the woods. Temps are supposed to rise to mid 40's to low 50's the next couple of days. Bluegills are biting and there is 18 inches of solid ice on the lake. A few trucks out there but more 4 wheelers and snowmobiles. Docks will remain on the shore for a few more weeks.
MAPLE SYRUP FEST SATURDAY!!!!!!!!! Join us for a hugely popular local festival featuring maple syrup, honey, and yummy food.!
Friday, March 3
6 degrees below 0 with sunny skies this morning. Going to get a last good winter of riding in. Game fishing season is open on WI waters thru the weekend and MI thru March 15. Panfishing is open year round.
Did 217 miles riding from Sunrise to the Mosquito Inn in Toivela and back yesterday. Snow on the Land O and Conover trails but choppy. As soon as you hit trail 3 going up into Watersmeet the groomer has been active and the rest of the trip (except around some swampy areas in Alston) were smooth and white. Tons of snow as you continue North. Thursday, March 2
Out riding today with Dug. Trails are pretty decent but this may be the last weekend so come see us while you can.
We are the only area in the state of Wisconsin that still has winter, good snow and open trails.
Tuesday, Feb 28.
Rode 80 miles with Leo and Manny today. Wisconsin trails are thin but when u get closer to Watersmeet trails were snow covered and white.
All lakes were solid, smooth, and slush free.
Sunday, Feb. 26
Winter is back. Joe and I enjoyed snowmobiling with the Florida Boyz Friday and we were back out busting some powder and enjoying temps in the 20's and 8 inches of fresh snow. Fishermen have a few more days left in the game fishing season. Pan Fish only after March 1. Kate was home and Davey and her did some cross country skiing so if you want winter fun....Sunrise Lodge is the place to be. Serving Yummy Breakfasts every Friday, Saturdy, and Sunday!
Another Day...another record high. Yesterday was 55 degrees and sunny. I guess that comes to an end later today. Colder temps and snow (maybe 8-12 inches) moving in Thursday thru Saturday. Winter is not over yet.
Weather approaching 60 with bright blue skies....is it really mid Feb? Sunburned fishermen were all over the place. Not good for snowmobiling or skiing but they say winter weather is returning Thursday or Friday. I really hope so as the trails need a couple of cold nights and 6-8 inches of snow.
It is currently 12 degrees with snow coming down. Thursday a high of 30 and low of 10 and then 40's predicted for 4 straight days. Bad news for snowmobile trails but GREAT NEWS for people that want to get out to the Radar and Bikini Run or Blizzard Blast on Saturday. Ice Fishermen will be loving it and sun screen may be needed.
The weather and the snow are perfect for some fun in the snow. Snowmobile trails are in great shape....you can travel in any direction. The ice fishermen are still able to maneuver around the lake but it there is quite a bit of snow.
Cross Country ski trails are in great shape. Downhill skiing, snow shoeing, radar runs, pond hockey, fishing tournaments, etc.......
Sled Dog Race Weekend in Land O Lakes. Currently -5 Degrees but is supposed to get up in the 20's with a couple of inches of snow. PERFECT! Tuesday has a few more inches of snow in the forecast with temps in the 20's. The ten day forecast is EXCELLENT as well.
We got some snow yesterday and we have some snow flurries as I type. We have some winter weather like temps on the way, nothing warmer than 20s above and we got lows in single digits and a couple nights below 0. Looking like a great weekend to enjoy some great snowmobile riding and hopefully another good weekend of ice fishing!
PHILS' FISHING, HUNTING, SNOWMOBILING, and SKIING REPORT
The ice fishing was great. You can drive a truck, snowmobile, or 4 wheeler any where on the ice. Snowmobile trails are shot til old man winter comes back. There are still people riding, but....I would not.
The fish have been biting. Northerns and crappies around the islands, gills galore in Rice Bay, The flags were flying on the west shore yesterday with mostly pike. Snowmobile trails are in VERY GOOD Condition. We have had quite a few cross country skiers and snowshoers enjoying the snow and the beautiful winter scenery. Looks like a few more weeks of top notch winter fun!
Been out riding and all trails are excellent. Life is good. Heavy traffic this weekend but the groomers are out in force. The ice fishermen have been doing well on Northern, crappies, bluegills, and even some nice walleyes. Ski Hills and trails are excellent as well. Winter Fun everywhere.
Phil was out riding the trails all along Phelps, Eagle River, Alvin and Nelma and said they are great riding, this should make all the snowmobilers happy as well. Lake is in good shape no slush reported recently. Trails are good shape come up and enjoy a nice ride this weekend :)
SPRING, SUMMER, FALL & WINTER HAVE LOTS OF HAPPY FISHERMEN AT SUNRISE!
PHIL'S WORDS OF WISDOM ???
Life is good---remember the alternative!
