4 posts in this topic

Anybody have any information on the current state of Geneva Lake? I have not heard of any town meetings or seen any articles in the paper or from the DNR.

I don't know a whole lot about the draw down on lake Geneva.

One thing I do know is that Ducks Unlimited has a Geneva Lake Dam project out for bid right now. The lower water level could be a temporary draw down associated with the construction of that project. Being that this project is being funded by DU it is probably meant to improve Geneva Lake's duck hunting.

the draw down is to help freeze out the carp. so all around to help out for better habitat for waterfowl.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
