I think I made a mistake plowing the Van Vac landing down to the lake a few days ago!! blush.gif

Checked it tonight, and it appears that someone has driven a 4 wheel drive vehicle out about 150 feet and cleared a 30 X 30 area.

Do not know what they used as it doesn't look to have been plowed, but it may have been.

Didn't think there was anyone that foolish, but stand corrected. frown.gif

Well, it certainly wasn't me dude, I assure you!!!! I guess a 4 wheeler falling through there 2 weeks ago just wasn't enough!! Being the first to get a fish house out on the lake isn't worth losing your life over. That isn't your fault someone drove out on the lake!!!!

Talk to you soon,

Justin

I know it isn't my fault, but a vehicle would never have made it down to the lake and back without the road being plowed.

I had a bit of trouble opening it with my truck and 500 lbs of sand in the back, because the snowmobiles had run on there packing it down.

The tracks were far apart and looked like those from a full size vehicle.

On a lighter note, stop in tomorrow morning and we'll plan the attack on Burntside from the Top Secret Landing! smile.gif

I've been checking out the weather, and think life will be good for the opener. cool.gifcool.gifcool.gifcool.gif

Any reprots on ice/slush/snow conditions off of the landing? Is it tough going off of the landing (for an ATV or walking I am talking about) with the slush/snow conditions?

Any ideas about ice thickness (crank auger or power auger)?

Thanks for any info!

The slush seems to be setting up, somewhat, but the snowmobile tracks off the landing say different.

Talked to the guy who cleared the area I mentioned earlier in this post.

Said there is 12 inches where he has been fishing, 150 feet off the landing. This area had a hole earlier in the week that added about 4 inches of water that froze.

This could explain the thicker ice.

I do not believe there are many, if any other places on Burntside that have this much.

8 inches where I checked last Monday, and it was not hard ice.

Will recon it early next week and report back.

Thank you for the reports, you are a good man. I am beginning to think that half of what JustinG and stfcatfish say about you isn't true. grin.gif

Casey,

I cannot believe that you put me in the same boat as stfcatfish!!!! tongue.gif Anyways, Most of what Steve and I say about the "Old Fart Stickleback Salesman" is for the most part accurate information. Hey, where is Steve Foss anyways??

caseymcq,

You Sir, are correct!!!! laugh.gif

Pay no attention to JustinG and his complaint that you consider he and stfcatfish to both be vermin! grin.gifgrin.gif

IMHO, they are! smile.gif

Wanderer, I might be on either side. I might step into the trail now and then and dare a person to see me. I might even be in a tree overhanging the trail or perched up on a nearby escarpment glassing the trail.

I.

Might.

Be.

ANYWHERE! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

      Great video Curt, for as much of it that I could see. Keep up the good work, and one question, Are there any live emerald shiners around the Baudette area to be had, or just frozen ones?
    • eyeguy 54
      Its a little stiffer than my titanium spring boober and much more sensitive.  I like it  better than the 27 inch ul ticklestick. Only used 3 and 4 mm jigs so far. Thumbs up from me.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew. 
    • The Chemist
      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.
    • The Chemist
      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.
    • eyeguy 54
      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.
