I cannot tell you how thick the ice is but it looked really good over there. I stopped by there last weekend and I couldn't see any breakers to speak of. I will be up there this coming weekend and I will give you an update when I return.

Hey boar, Its time to take Emil and head out. We were at Long Point today we had to move around some to find fish and the ice was about 13" where we cut. we found fish in 24-25 fow. No trucks out yet just very light vehicles, ATV's & snowmobiles, we crossed some "live small cracks" nothing big or heaves, there are rough spots out there, but its about average.

boar we went east so couldn't see that far, however a lot of the resort houses are going out that way, but not very far west yet.

Hey Kingfisher. grin.gif Figured you would post some thing. How was the fishing tho? Who went with you? Been busy here being this is my crunch time. About out of long Icesaws and Stenberg’s had puter problems and now they can’t get the material for the blades. Mark said Monday but he said that over a week ago. Over 3 weeks and still waiting on blades. confused.gif

Go fishing a couple of extra times for me and catch a wall hanger wink.gif

      @leech~~ I believe the permit does require those houses to be moved out of the contest area.  Not necessarily kicked off the lake. That’s what permits are for, eh?  Looks like a great day for you two - congrats!  Might’ve been the lake, the spot or the fisher.  But I’ll go with the lake too.

      Anyone come up with a good way to store the dinette table when fishing? My IC has two holes under the dinette and I put it outside to fish but it is sooooo cold when I turn it into a bed to go to sleep. Thinking of a bracket to hang it inside but I don’t really want to block a window? Any ideas? What do you guys do?

      Went by there today and noticed a few house setup in the contest area.  What happens to them next weekend? They are told to move or get kicked off a public lake? Should have gone to a different lake there Wanderer. Just saying. My son and I today.

      There have been signs there for a long time,   maybe 30 years?
    • Spartacus218er
      Good for him making those signs I enjoy his views in a nutshell!

      Access is in good shape at Hole in the Day.  Ice is in good shape and travels MUCH easier than last year.  But that was due to slush getting rutted and refrozen.  These warm temps might play that way again.  But for now all is well. Fishing though... the evening walleye bite was short like usual but finicky for us.  1 - 14 inch eye iced and one other lost.  Set line and shiner was responsible for the 14.  The hooked and lost fish was on a spoon with minnow head but I had to let it hang still for the commitment.  I had several other lookers but they just wouldn’t eat it.  Two lines became one but no bump!  Nice day to be on the lake.
