Coming from Hamilton because it sounds like the grand is just too washed out and unsafe! Usual buddies bailed because of the storm but I'm still looking to do some fishing on a day off work! Anyone wanna meet up? I walk out and have a full set of gear.

You might want to rethink your strategy. With wind gusts to 70km hr hazardous winter conditions and 10 to 20cm of snow forecast it'll be pretty easy to get into trouble out there. Don't want to accidentally walk into an open hole or crack in a whiteout. Just my .02 cents worth.

Braving the storm tomorrow will be conducted inside..my house. If we get what they're predicting, time has been allotted for snow removal and a few coffee breaks. The last place I want to be is on the road avoiding nitwits.

I agree call an operator and book a hut if you want to go out. Personally the weather would keep me from making the drive as well. Freezing rain, ice pellets, high winds, blizzard conditions, are just some of the words used in tomorrows forecast.

You can tell what people are thinking. Stay home/ save your money and wasted time.

Check with Caseys in Port Bolster. He has an Argo with a track as well as overnight accommodations with a restaurant. I'm sure he would like the business. And will keep you safe . Come up before the storm and stay until it's over

I was at Caseys in Port Bolster Sunday. Talked to Taj, he is very busy. But he's got nice restaurant and accommodation.

I would wait till this storm is over.

But we need snow on the lake, as it is mostly ice and not a smooth ice!
The ice thickness was 17 inches were I fished.
There is a pressure crack you have to cross to get nice perch.....be careful.......follow the trail

I think the conditions will be great for the weekend.

Not to sound like a smart a##, but what about Hamilton inner harbour for walleye? Closer to home.

Id wait it out bud, forecast is calling for a mixed bag of nasty weather !
Colorado lowwwww!!!!!

Visibility will be bad with the high winds,, not to mention the temperature drop to -20 + wc. Add to that freezing rain and 20cms of snow. Bad day IMO (its either that or Im getting old).

Thats said :
If anyones looking to brave the storm just the same,,,,, I could always use a guy to shovel sidewalks !

At least we could talk fishing

I went out in Friday (Feb 8th). There was 100 km/h gusts, which felt pretty consistent out on the lake. The ice was slick too (not much snow cover). I set up my hut and the wind was so strong it was tearing the fabric tabs that the anchors go thru. Me and the gf decided to put our stuff away and get off the ice. Good thing I had a pair of cleats. They didn't fit my boots so she had to drag my a## back to shore lol. Had to walk back into the wind!

Seen a few people out there and they were also not having a good time. One guy was telling us he lost his hut completely! And had to chase his power auger half way across the bay.

I'd advise you to wait it out. Especially if you are going to drive all the way from Hamilton. Besides, fishing supposed to be relaxing! Not much relaxing to be done when you're out in the middle of a storm!
