I have often wondered how on earth are people supposed to know how much ice will be anywhere in one week? I mean, come on people.

Be nice, we are all anxious to get up there. Better to ask than not. I CALL LYBACKS EVERY 15 MINUTES AND ASK, "ICE ANY THICKER? MY HOUSE OUT YET?"

hehe

The advice is good, keep checking with the resorts you plan to pull out of.

Naw, this year we just got a cool LED Cabela's lantern...works great when you gotta walk house to house at night without the moon!

Merry Christmas Mick.

By the way, we got out on the big pond on Thursday...ice is sketchy where we are putting the houses. Hope it gets better in a week or so. We had about 10 - 11". Should be able to place the houses by next weekend where we want if we get some ice growth.

      Cliff, you finally made it down to our end of the lake!  Did anybody catch a walleye?  I'm not totally turned off by them, I'll still stop by for a snack or drink...or both. You can't beat the setting - sitting out on the deck!

      Today the Lake Vermilion Guides League held an ice fishing day for 35 5th and 6th graders from the Cook area at the Landing. The Landing very graciously hosted this group of kids for us. I found the owners to be very friendly and happy to be a part of the kids outing! I would not hesitate to stop in there for a meal or drink if I get in that area again! Cliff

      I was on an Annandale area lake yesterday with only about 9" of ice which was getting rotten and black in places. The lake had 15" of clear ice and I was driving a Silverado on it a week earlier. There were quite a few areas where water had drained though cracks and opened up fist-sized holes within the crack.   All in all, the lake was perfectly safe for walking and more than likely not rotten or thin enough to make it unsafe for ATVs at this point. The landing was is pretty good shape, all things considered, but if one were to put an ATV in the drink, that'd be where it'd happen.
