Temps in the 40's all week and thru next weekend.

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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
ALL Winter Fun is at its peak. All trails, lakes, hills are excellent.
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.
The 2014 fishing season.
Nice Bass are being caught too.
Northern and Musky aren't too shabby either.
John Brust has the start of a good fish fry with Crappies caught in June, 2014
PHIL'S WORDS OF WISDOM ???
Drive carefully. Its not only cars that can be recalled by their maker.
