MNHunter, Thanks for the report, I like to hear the good news. Hey I was wondering if anyone here has ever used Wheelers Point for guided ice fishing. Caligrl and I are headed up there the weekend of the 8th and 9th of March and we are hoping for some good fishing. However, we have never used Wheelers before, but we're hoping for the best! Any information would be great. Thanks,
