I was out Saturday from Amor, We walked out, ONE fullsize truck straight out from the access. We had from 8-13 inches of good ice, underneath the two inches of frozen crap. I have a buddy going out with a Ferd Ranger today.

I drive out from across the lake from amor. plowed a new spot for my shack yesterday then drilled a hole and had 8" and the water was a gushing out shooting out of the hole about 4" high and spread out big time basically flooding the whole island I wanted to fish, oh well I have the snow moved so she should freeze good.. I hope haha.....happy new year

Was out today on the north side, just west of the river outlet. There was 12 inches of good ice and no flooding at the spot I was at. I've seen a few trucks out there but most people are driving their 4 wheelers/sleds out.

      First Welcome to FM, They definitely can be caught during the day but the water is really clear usally on that lake and I have found over the years of fishing it that the evening into the dark bite can be way better. Don't rule out trying to target those fish you saw.  Some options are fishing  on a cloudy day, or try down sizeing your presentation as you may surprise yourself and put a few topside.

      Electrical tape for me nice and smooth. If your worried about the residue at the end of the season a little tip is rub  toothpaste on the cork work it around then wash in water.  Cleans them up takes the scum off and they look good as new when done.

      I broke a bunch also at first  my bear paws just squeeze a little to hard! You definitely need to be carefull when putting them on to much pressure and another one bites the dust. Great bobber and concept can be used for a slip or fixed bobber just a little fragile.

      Some good sticks there!

      Looks good Royce hopefully you can put it to good use soon. The ice is sure getting thick if it keeps up I will be ordering a extension for my K drill soon or bring out the  StrikeMaster and extension.
