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

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I sent you a private message.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
