Spoke to a friend of mine who lives near the landing, he tells me they did dredge it out some and they supposedly are going to be tarring a parking lot. The swimmming beach will now be where the old landing was. They took down the old shed(Shelter) down and cut down all the trees that were there. I fish this lake all the time, I went down there the day before did much work and was suprised to see all the reeds in the swimming area. Where they are putting the new landing, they had to remove some reeds, so the reeds they removed, they put where the swimming beach was. I can't wait to get down there to see the changes.

Spoke to my friend last night that lives near the landing, They worked Monday on it and has not seen them since, Looks like it is ready to be paved, but doesn't know what they are waiting for. He say's there is something in front of the landing so you can't launch a boat. He is going to keep me posted, and I will post it here when I hear something.

What if they only dig it out mediocre?

I landed there once this spring when the wind was blowing into that shore at about 25 mph...It was fun to say the least.

They moved the landing down to the East end of the property. I grew up right next to where the landing is going to be. It used to drop of there somewhat, But my friend who lives by there, Said he thinks they dredged it out some, but wasn't positive.

Just an Update on the landing: They put Curb and gutter in this week, still no Asphalt. Guess the landing is still closed.

Took a drive down to see the Francis Landing. They do have the base coat of asphalt down. They made parking for about 15 or so trailers. The landing itself looks to much deeper, they have only taken out the reeds where the concrete part of the ramp is at. They need to get the reeds out, so you can get out to the lake. It is looking really nice except, They planted grass on a small portion of the hillside, and some (Contact Us Please) thought it would be cool to ride ATV up the hill and mess up the new grass seed.

Anyways, landing still closed.

I guess the landing is open. The reeds out in front of the landing have not been removed, don't know what the plans are for that. Might go out there and give it a try today and will let you know what the landing is like later.

I am interested in seeing the new landing. I remember how hard it was to land a boat at the old one, so im guessing it cant be that bad.

I see what your saying about everyone not going out there. Its a great lake.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
