PHIL'S WEATHER REPORT
The season is up and running at Sunrise Lodge. 3 Delicious Meals a day are being served by Chef's Linda, Mark, and Ben. The fish are biting--need to get rid of this East wind....but cant have everything. Walleye, Northern, Largemouth Bass, Crappies, and Perch are hitting. The new pontoon is in the water and ready to go fishing!!!! Musky opens May 15. The activities are being put together-- beginning in early June.
What a difference a month makes!
When spring decided to show up - it came fast.
The snow melted quickly, ice went out fast, docks are in and the lake level is up.
The lodge is now serving three meals daily
Lac Vieux Desert Lake Association benefit breakfast tomorrow.
Summer is on the way. Life is good.
More snow....12 degrees but the sun is out. 9th grade fundraiser today--Join us 7:30-11:00 for All U Can Eat Breakfast.
Snow, Snow, and more Snow! Where was winter in March? Snow and cold thru Wed at least.
I thought we would be putting docks in by now--not shoveling and plowing every day.
Joe, Carl, and Tony even got the snowmobiles back out.
This is not helping us get ready for the summer season, but Mother Nature has her own ideas.
The ice is going out on some of the smaller lakes but not so much on the medium and large lakes.
If we ever get a break it will leave us quickly--I hope.
PHILS' FISHING, HUNTING, SNOWMOBILING, and SKIING REPORT
Walleyes up to 27 inches( all released), nice pike, crappies, perch, and even a tiger musky have been the Catch of the Day for Sunrise guests so far. Small tube jigs for crappies, rapalas and jig and leach have been the baits of choice. Water level is good and water temps in mid 50's. The Lac Vieux Desert Association Opening Day Breakfast was a huge success and we look forward to the mobile hatchery project which currently has 4.5 million fertilized walleye eggs. GREAT NEWS!!!!
Fishing for Walleye, Northern, Largemouth Bass and other game fish opens tomorrow.
Musky season opens May 15 on Lac Vieux Desert.
Smallmouth Bass opens June 18 (catch & release is always open)

PHIL'S WORDS OF WISDOM ???
If life gives you lemons, squeeze the juice into a squirt gun and shoot other people in the eyes
PHIL's Sports Report
No Packers, Brewers, or Bucks...Go Badgers
The Packers specialize in Hail Mary's! Great game ---bad outcome.
There is always next year....now I sound like a Cubs fan.
Go Pack Go!
Augie - Here is that picture of you wearing a Packer shirt....again and again!
It isn't easy being green.
