North End

4 posts in this topic

Has anyone seen or been fishing Garrison Reef? I haven't heard much about the north end. How much ice is there? Anybody walking out there yet?

My son was at Hunters Point yesterday, we had our house moved up there from a different resort. George told him that they had as much as 10" in some areas to as little as 2" in others. They were going to start checking and marking as of today in hopes that they can begin moving some houses around the 15th. At least thats the plan for right now. No doubt with the snow continued cold temps are needed to put some solid ice down under the snow pack. Good luck and hang on. Bill

so has anyone been out on the reef, or is it too good too write a post? I'm thinking that the reports from the south end mean that there is some ice on the NW side of the pond. All I want to know is anyone walking out on the north end yet???

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later

      Lets say you have 1.5 ah batteries now and you drilled one and a half holes per battery. Unless that ice was 50' thick, have dull blades and your auger is 8, or bigger that's not a drill you want to put more money into.  So give us some info on your auger and how many in lbs of torque is your drill?
