PHIL'S WEATHER REPORT

Friday, March 27

A Cold morning with -3 degrees but sunshine.
About 5 inches of snow on the ground and 16 inches of ice on the lake.
This week temps are "supposed" to warm into the 50's. YEA!

Thursday, March 12

Warm and Sunny. It is amazing how fast the snow is melting.
We may actually have spring this year.

Monday, March 9

What a great weekend of weather and snowmobiling.
Never seen as many people in the  Northwoods in March.
Trails are about done with the warm forecast---time for some panfishing fun!
Temps in the 40's all week and thru next weekend.

Wed Feb 25

BRRRRRR! It is cold but will be warming up for the weekend.
It is almost March but winter is going strong in the Northwoods.

Thursday Feb 12

A colder snowy forecast for the weekend. Radar Run Saturday and Blizzard Blast on Sunday.
Next Sunday is the Kids Fishing Jamboree on Lac Vieux Desert. Make plans to join us for some winter fun.

Monday, Feb 9

Awesome forecast for winter fun!! Snow and cold but not brutal (except Saturday).
Many local festivals this weekend. Kids fishing jamboree next Sunday--Feb. 22. Winter fun at its finest!

Wed. Feb 4

Life is great  in Land O Lakes if you love winter! The forecast is excellent with highs in the teens to 20 and lows around 0. There is so much to do. Conover has their winter frolic this weekend and the HUGE Blizzard Blast the following weekend. Phelps has the Winter Carnival this Weekend featuring Brett and Frisk. Land O Lakes has 3 full Days of Sled Dog Racing this weekend and the Radar Run and Bikini Races next Weekend. Ice Fishing tournaments, Pond Hockey in Eagle River......The snowmobile trails are great, the fish are biting, and skiing is fantastic.  Wow!


PHILS' FISHING, HUNTING, SNOWMOBILING, and SKIING  REPORT

March 27

We still have ice fishermen out there catching gills, perch, and crappies.
Seems like Indian Bay and around the islands are the best spots for bigger panfish.
Still down hill skiing but snowmobiling and x-c skiing are done.
Open water season for walleyes and northern starts Saturday, May 2, 2015.

March 12

Snowmobile trails close at noon today. Last weekend trails were awesome and closed on Thursday.
Mother Nature is amazing. Time to think ice fishing and don't forget your sunscreen.

March 9

Panfishing should really improve over the next week with warm temps and snow melt.
Should be easy moving around the lakes and sunscreen may be necessary.
A fabulous weekend of snowmobiling just ended and that may be it....what a great season it was.
There is still snow and we may make another weekend on some trails and the back country will have plenty of snow for a while.

Feb 25

Snowmobile trails are awesome. Received 6 inches of fresh snow the past couple of days.
This is the last weekend for game fishing on LVD until May. Panfishing remains open year 'round.
Skiing is awesome--both cross country and downhill.

Feb 12

A couple of inches of fresh snow has whitened up the trails.
Trails are in very good shape and groomers are running nightly. 
A cold Saturday coming up for the ice fishermen.
I have not seen slush lately.
Some real nice northerns have been caught on tip ups with sucker minnows or golden shiners being the preferred baits.
Look for green weeds.

Feb 9

ALL Winter Fun is at its peak. All trails, lakes, hills are excellent.

Feb 4

The snowmobile trails are excellent--except for Eagle River area. This colder snap allowed the groomers to work their magic. Midweek riding is still the BEST! Fishing pressure has been light but productive. If you find green weeds you will find fish. Shiners for walleye and northern and waxies for gills, perch, and crappies. All cross country, downhill, and snowshoe trails are awesome.



Bear, deer bow and grouse hunt seasons have begun and other seasons will start soon.





                          SPRING, SUMMER, FALL & WINTER HAVE LOTS OF HAPPY FISHERMEN AT SUNRISE.

PHIL'S WORDS OF WISDOM ???

Drive carefully. Its not only cars that can be recalled by their maker.



PHIL's Sports Report

Go Badgers! Elite 8 again. Cheering for Sparty tonite. A good day to be Sam Decker!

Go Brewers! Good to hear Bob Ueckers voice on the radio again.

Now the Seahawk fans know what it felt to be a Packer fan.

Super Bowl Bound!?  Wait til Next Year! DUG says the Bears new coach is gonna make Jake Cutler into an NFL QB--we'll see. First he has to learn his name. 

All you betting Bear Fans can start your Miller Lite deliveries any time now.

Go Pack Go!

Jay Cutler for MVP! Must have been the coach and GM who sucked...not Jay.

 



Augie - Here is that picture of you wearing a Packer shirt....again and again!
It isn't easy being green. Looks like he'll be wearing this classy shirt again next summer.

Go Packers !
