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

      Seen some fox tracks where I was looking for birds yesterday so I might have to head out there after dark.

      Went out yesterday after the wake and visitation with Finn. He flushed two hens and I saw him chasing a rooster but I am not fast enough to keep up. It flushed about a hundred yards out from me. We seen one grouse but it flushed 60 yards in front of Finn and he was only 10 yards infront of me. Then Finn started going crazy so he headed into the cat tails and wow 50 or so mallards flew at me and then 7 big swans. Finn did not look happy that I just watched them. It was a fun little trip.    Anyone else Lise out there chasing birds yet?

      Quick question, we have never come up in the winter, but it's my understanding the ice is usually questionable around Oak Narrows and Timbuktu. Does anyone know what the ice is usually like in Birch Narrows (West Hinsdale) and Smarts Bay (SW area Hinsdale) around the Retreat Lodge Area which is where our island property is.   Thanks for any insight

      As of yesterday most lakes are froze over please watch for areas that geese and swans have kept open. I checked a lake and found about an inch yesterday and I am sure it made some more last night.

      U-Haul in Hermatown will fill a tank and you pay for what they put in.
