That sounds about right but I'm sure there were others out before me as I like to play it on the safe side.

I like to be ice fishing a bay or duck hunting Thanksgiving weekend. The years you can't do either are tough!

Ditto that. I was on Minnetonka and open water was in sight. Got 2 nice pike on tip ups, then the weather got warm for two weeks, I left on my delayed honeymoon, and came back to 18" of ice. Perfect!

      I remember you jabbering something about smoking some crappies at the GTG but I don't hear the best so I thought-What? They look Great!

        So no help here it looks like. How did it end up going? Did you find a fix?. Suk's to be stranded.

      How's the snow on the lake?  Can you still get around on snowmobile or is the slush getting bad?  Thanks for any info.

      I don't have an axe to grind with The Landing (and I don't honk anyone on this forum does either)- I went there a few times last summer and the food was good, they had an ample beer selection, and the service was friendly- all of those things I'm willing to pay for.   We had another couple up staying the weekend at our cabin and brought them to The Landing and had a terrific time, looking forward to making it back there again!   And more importantly, can't wait for the ice to get off the lake!!
