glenn57 you defiantly need the Icesaw. For first ice it’s a safety tool. When walking out on the first ice or any questionable ice you have it out in front of you approximately 5’ to 6’ chipping as you walk. If the point goes through in 1 good chip you better start backtracking being the ice isn’t safe. Also it’s a lot cheaper to operate being there isn’t any gas to mess with and environmentally friendly. You can have it in your locked vehicle to prevent it from being stolen! It’s a lot safer to operate also and you don’t get all wet. It always starts and it’s so easy to use that BOSS can even use it. The Icesaw also makes nice smooth edges on the hole. You can either make a spearing hole or an angling hole! Enough said for now about the NUMBER 1 Icesaw made and I hope you don’t have to get on your knees and beg \:o to get one. \:\(

In 12” or less ice you can chip through with the Icesaw pretty easy. After the ice gets thicker the ice chips start to pack in the hole and have to be cleaned out to continue chipping. When the ice is thicker the people auger the corners out and cut between the holes. The Icesaw has its place in your arsenal for ice fishing.

      Sounds like putting the gear away wasn't a bad idea. Didn't relize the ice has deteriorated that much. Guess I've been to caught up in thinking about summer. Sounding like maybe get the boat out next weekend hard to say yet would like to get it on the water first as possibly taking it to lake superior in a few weeks. Thanks all for the reports keep em coming. Ooh forgot drove past crow wing lake yesterday and the north side was melted a ways from shore and away from the reeds. Just in a few hours the ice turned from white-black to dark black. With the temps forcasted it shouldn't take long now.

        You got to stop by! One of the best fisheries as far as multi spices lakes in MN. The fish that come out of big V can be monsters. With that being said the scenery all over the lake is like none other. It's truly one of the most scenic lakes I've ever fished really makes you sit back and really enjoy what nature has to offer.

      I'm hanging it up for the season as well. Yesterday we hit 371 bay of North Long. The walk in was a bit spooky. The ice is very rotten. It takes about 8 toe kicks to make a hole hole through the ice.    With that being said, the 371 bay is the first of the area lakes to freeze and first to melt. So, I think it's reasonable to say that a guy can still get out on larger lakes, like Round, Gull, or Pelican. That's just my two cents.    It was a great year with many memoirs made. Good luck to those that still make it out, and again, be safe!

      My goal is to fish Vermilion again someday.   I keep driving past it.
