The nerve centre for Operation Walleye is now deployed. Which is another way of saying the lads were able to get their fish hut out on the bay. Careful investigation showed that there was about eight inches of good solid clear ice out there at the Island.
That's the BMD fish hut way out there, a dot in the distance. Mind you, the way the sun and clouds were playing across the lake makes it a pretty picture.
Our bay is protected from wind so tends to freeze over faster than the main Lake of Bays down by Bigwin. Once again, anyone contemplating heading out onto any ice surface, we cannot stress enough that you MUST KNOW BEFORE YOU GO.
There are fish huts out at Dwight Beach as well, including two that are available for rent from our cousin Ross Tapley. Call 877-635-2575 to reserve with Ross. We don't provide hut rentals -- we partner with Ross for that. He's got great huts, not far off shore so not involving heroic feats of hiking... and he's only five minutes away from Bondi.
