I was out on Forest New years day. Found 12 to 14 inches of ice where I was fishing. Is that enough ice for the contest??

I got my tickets, but a couple of buddies said they're going to wait and see.

What do you all think?

Was out checking the ice on Saturday. Found 13.5 to 15 inches in the contest area. With the cold weather predicted and over 4 weeks to go, I can pretty much guaranty we'll have more than enough ice. grin.gif

Don't forget! There's less than 2 weeks left to save $10 on each Fishapalooza event ticket. Buy them now to avoid the last minute rush.

      Wow that is a little discouraging. Looked at the DNR lake info for the last survey which was done on Big Trout lake in 2011. Not one Laker was caught in any of the test net types! Still shows their stocking them but none showed up. Anyone try it on opener and find any Lakers?

      Anyone go out there last weekend for opener? If so how was the ice and the bite? Giving this weekend a thought?

      I personally like the cold and dont mind it. But this week is a nice change and prob wont help the ice building much!

      So how did you do last weekend?

      I remembered I wrote this question. So I'm replying back. I was lucky enough to have a relative who had a Smith and Wesson Model 66-2 .357 mag (mint condition) that he was willing to part with. I haven't shot it yet. Been busy. Anyway now what recommendations are out there for 38 shells for plinking. I've read about the problems if using to heavy a load. Thanks
