welcome to FM/HSO WTN4ICE! It's always great to have new members joining this site. Have fun at the ice show this weekend.

Be sure to keep an eye out for the Ice Leaders events. We are in the process of setting a date for the DL area get-together this year. I hope to see some new faces there this year.

Welcome, my Brother!

Feel free to visit me as well. I am usually in the Perm house on Big C with Minnow-man and Woody drinking my cool ones for me! grin.gif

Or visiting Eyehunter on my sled and having one of his!

Nice to see all of this new blood on the site.

BTW -- take what DEAD has to say with a grain of salt, he goes after trout, you know. wink.gif

Hey fellas, another new bee...My son now lives in DL so I'll be looking at getting out in that area this winter. Just looking for some decent lakes to start. Crappie, walleye and some tip ups for pike are my goals.

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome.I usually spend New Years wknd on Big C.Was there last year with a remodled camper & the trap during the monsoon.Rain in winter sucks!!Caught some decent eyes in the bay by the old Buckhorn. We catch nice gills & crappies from the dock in the summer but haven't seen any through the ice yet.Hopefully being more mobile I will find the slabs.Buddies want to put the camper on Crystal. I also spent a lot of time on Lizzie & usually find crappies in the village early.Looking forward to meeting fellow hard water nuts!!!

welcome giwoyna5! The DL forum is usually pretty good about having up to date reports thanks to all the great members here. Often times, specific lakes are not mentioned to protect the resource, but most of the tips/techniques used on one lake can apply to most of the other lakes in the area. Good luck fishing!

I hope you invest in a fuel-efficiant car and dump the Dodge so you can drive 20 more minutes and get to a real lake.

wink.gif

Then you can wheeler over to me.

Of course, who am I to say. I catch 8 10-inchers and you catch at least one 17 incher ...

Thanks DEADhead, I don't expect to get anyone's hot spots, I was just looking for some good lakes that have easy access and sufficient mapping and I'll go from there. A starting point so to speak. I'm picking some up already....GREAT FORUM! G5

Gotta keep the Dodge running for a while now, just bought the wife a new Town and Country this spring. Maybe I should just get a job at a small town newspaper, those guys seem to have all toys... grin.gif

Welcome all newbies. It is website policy that all newcomers give the moderators one set of coordinates to their best Walleye, and Crappie hole smirk.gif. Really it is, I swear. Anyway, welcome again and we're glad to have you as part of the family.

Good luck out there guys. This is one of many lakes I have yet to fish around DL. Sounds like a guy has to go on a decent walk to hit a few of the hot spots?
