i put in at cove about quarter past noon or so. it was nice. the vehicle traffic that has been there so far this year wasnt there today. parking was still pretty packed. i just started heading out toward spirit island going slow to see if i could mark any fish to see what depths...or a fishable school. it seemed like 21.5ft was the ticket. at 3 i released a 14" that would of been my fourth keeper. well, its the old saying, "one in the pan is better than two in the bush." i fished until about 7 and released a nice 20-1/2" & healthy 25". i never did get that 4th keeper... i just couldnt go back in after only fishing a little over 2 hours... the bugs were a nussance when there was no wind. but when the wind blew a little they went away. it blew from the south then switched to the north...still not much of one. i was using about a 9ft snell, red hook (that was gold when i quit...) and a chartreuse bead with a jumbo leech. i didnt try anything else because i was content catching what i did.

regards,

      If you chase panfish late ice, make sure you get a sled with high sides. My Otter Pro has already made several water crossings, while keeping my gear high and dry.

        You just have to remove any and all the bird seed at least 10 minutes before the warden arrives and you're legal.    Near as we could tell the little guy got spooked by something and when he barreled through the yard the clearest path seemed to be the lower deck due to our loaded sleds n cars n stuff.  The most daylight was coming through the railing.  Instead of jumping the railing he lowered his head to part the spindles like saplings but these didn't move!    If you look at the spindle above hind quarter you can see the mark where his face planted.  There was a tuft of hair stuck to it that matched what was missing by his eye.   I was out there when it happened.  I didn't see him do it but heard the crash and the bellar and thought someone fell.  I hustled up there calling to see if someone needed help and found the deer kicking and taking his last breaths.  The others in the house heard it too and came to the door.  We were all pretty stunned.     Thats the best I can come up with.  I hope you can buy it!

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.
