I was out pheasant hunting on a big slough on Sunday and the weight of the snow was forcing water onto the ice, in a couple of spots I walked thru 2-3 inches of slush on top of the ice. Kind of a bung hole tightener!!!

Went to Wagonga last night. Fished on 8" of ice, and wasn't too worried about going swimming.

All I have to say about pulling the portable through the drifts is "Amen, brother!" Fortunately, the snow was pretty well frozen on top.

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!

      Not bad! Was the ice soft all they way through?
