Mine was pulled out on 12/30 last year. They weren't pulling the big ones though, I have an 8x12.

A lot depends on where on the lake you’re located and construction of the house. I have a 10’ x 20’ put out on December 23rd last year.

My house (8x16) is out of Lyback's on the SE side of the lake, and it generally goes out right around Christmas. Two years they actually were putting houses out all day on Christmas including mine. Guess where I was on Christmas night?

If you were single at the time, you spent the night fishing. If you're married, you probably spent the night in the Emergency Room after suggesting spending the night out fishing..... grin.gif

It all depends on Mother Nature.....

Your area is usually one of last places to pull out big houses, the south bays freeze up first.....I wouldn't get my hopes up for December but ya never know......Ice heaves and cracks are also a factor....

      What's your fish of choice to pursue? A weekday fish you could find after work are crappies, the basin bite on your local lake/lakes could make for a fun night bite. Panfish in general are fun to chase anytime, northerns are fun to target too but that's more of a weekend thing until we start gaining more daylight. Walleyes are punks to me and I've never been patient enough to target them unless I'm on LOW or Upper Red lol.

      How do you even get on this lake to ice fish?  Seems to be surrounded by Private land.

      Well Friday was a little slow picked up some nice gills here and there no crappies. Sat morning picked up a couple 10 inch gills and a couple more for the bucket here and there. Sat night 930 the crappies came through I caught 17 biggest was 12. Sunday picked a few more gills up for the bucket before heading off to a different lake for walleye. again fish wanted nothing to do with minnows only caught one with them. All other fish caught on a tungsten orange and green glow tipped with only a wax worm.   we were in 12 fow the sunfish were 2 off the bottom crappie cruising 4 off bottom Side note tried walleye tonight missed 3 of them! Now I remember why I don't walleye fish much stupid things

      I had the showdown as a hole hopping sonar but found I used my LX5 a lot more.  I went to the 7 and did not like it because it was bulky and hard to get used to both hopping holes and room inside one man Frabile.  Sold the 7 and bought another LX5 and do not see me going back to any other.  I have a wheel house and found is the only time I used the 7.  If you do a lot of fishing outside and like to move around.  I would stick with the 5, I now own two of them and don't see me using anything else.
