I was out twice on this lake and have only marked about 4 fish. I walked out from the shallow bay on the NW. 5 ft deep all the way out past the point. Long walk for nothing. Went out earlier this year and walked out of the other landing. Deeper bay, walked to the point between the bays and only marked a couple in 25 ft. Moved around a lot and found nothing. I am going today and will try the SE end by fischers and see if I can find any, otherwise I have no clue where to fish.

dont know how the fish are biting, but after doing 2 spearholes on the horseshoe chain the ice is 28 inches thick.

Fishing Freak,

Here's a thought: Why not just start a thread asking for guys to give up their spots? Would be a lot easier than posting the same exact thing for EVERY SINGLE THREAD for each lake!

      I also needed to buy a receiver so my total cost was $500 but they did have them at Scheels beginning of the year but you can buy it from dish. I think they charge $7 a month for use of the receiver.

      I was out last night in west metro and the water had mostly either frozen again or gone down the open holes. I was pleasantly surprised. We lost about an inch of ice though the top few inches were starting to soften.

      I would build a frame that your current otter sled would fit in that has downhill skis on the bottom of it.  I did this for my setup that is very similar to yours, I can pull 100 pounds through 8" of snow with very little effort.  Side note I wouldn't pull it with a four wheeler, mine slides to easy and wants to hit the back of the wheeler when I try to stop.

      I've got an Eskimo 949I which I love. We occasionally go deep off the trail to isolated lakes and my otter sled is too much like dragging an anchor when we break new trail or if there is deeper snow on the ice. I am in search of a slender long sled that pulls easier and can still accommodate my hub house, auger, buckets, poles etc.   ive looked at gander, FF, cabelas, Joe's and the like without finding exactly what I want. Does anyone know of a sled that fits my description?  Thanks and tight lines.
