How are you coming on the damage to the cabin? HOpe it wasn't to serious and you're getting it done before the snow flies.

I'm shutting down the water etc, pulling the dock and lift this weekend. Sure not looking forward to it but I guess there's not much I can do to slow down mother nature. Two weeks from now I will be in SD so maybe that will take my mine off of it for awhile. With the leaves pretty much gone I can almost see into your kitchen window from my dock LOL.. grin.gif.Have a good fall, perhaps see you there on the hard water. Bill

I was there last weekend and saw the damage first hand, not too major. I have someone lined up to fix the roof but they hadn't got to it yet, it was pretty rainy last week, hopefully it will be done soon. Three out of four panes of glass were broke out on one window, took them out and brought them to Mora for glass replacement, will be ready by this weekend. I put a piece of plywood over the window for now. The roof shouldn't cost more than a couple hundred bucks and the glass should be under a hundred, so no insurance claim will be needed. Cut up a few downed trees.

So things should be back to normal soon.

I'll be up Sunday to take the dock and pontoon out, my fishing boat and lift are already out. The following weekend I'll be shutting the water system down. I have a busy schedule this fall so I need to get things done when I can, a little earlier this year than normal.

Ice fishing will be here soon, maybe I'll try over your way this winter (early before the "village" appears). Dave

Sounds good. I hope to be up before the ice is thick enough to support full size vehicles and big wheel houses. The fish we've been catching that way have been awfully small, occassional decent size, but mainly 6-8". Released 3 others 21", 22" and 23" last weekend.

Glad to hear no major damage to the cabin. Hope to see you on the hard stuff. Bill

      As most people know there has been some recent incidents out on the ice with people falling through.  Monday two gentlemen fell through on wheelers on HOL.  One of the gentlemen is Dave Genz's brother and since they have a cabin up there I'm sure he has been on the lake more then one time.  Then on Tuesday someone fell through down by Dent on one of the Silent Lakes.  A buddy of mine was on a lake by Frazee yesterday afternoon and even though there was 12" of ice he was able to get through the ice with one hit of his spud bar.  Everyone PLEASE PLEASE be careful out there.  This ice is getting eaten up quickly!  I lost a class mate of mine when he fell through the ice trying to rescue his dog so please just take the time and stay safe.  Don't forget your rope, Spud Bar, and a life jacket if you MUST scratch that last itch!

      No boat this year.  Just wondering if there are fish to be caught from the shoreline along Lock and Dam 5 above Bass Camp.   Seems like a nice place to fish.  Any input if it would be worth the drive
