Ice is in great shape out to the Meth Hole, but I am a little concerned with the snow depth. It sounds like another 6 inches later this week. Right now I would say vehicle traffic would be fine but not sure if we get another 6. I have been working alot of hours but I will try to get out there the next few days and see what's going on

Thanks Icehawk for posting today about the ice thickness. I put a similar post in the Cool Cat's link, asking if you could let people know the conditions of the snow and ice.

Maybe a report should wait in case the next storm does hit?!?

Looking forward to hearing from you and utimately seeing you Saturday grin.gif

I was our there yesterday, and the snow is deep. mad.gif

The fishing was slow too, one 2# cat and four small crappies.

If we get another 6-12" or more, it will be a real mess out there.

Someone will need to plow a road for sure, or it will be limited to snowmobiles only.

Skeets- You are totally right. I just got back form the meth hole and she is a little tough out there. Put the chevy through a test that's for sure!! If we get any more snow it will definately be sleds only! frown.gif

Latest report for this area according to WJON radio is a Winter Storm Warnging. With predictions running from 8-16 inches of snow.

It doesn't look good for my group this weekend. We all sold our sleds and bought atvs. frown.gif

Please post if someone is planning on plowing a road.

Thanks

      Buddy and I went out yesterday around noon. Fished for a few hours was a little windy but not to bad. Only got a small largemouth and one decent gill. Only fished for 2-3 hours tried all over the small lake we were on. Ooh well still nice to finnaly get out. Planning on taking the yak out on opener do a bass/pike/ walleye trip so exited for that. Few nice gills you got there rick!

      Any reports? I know there was a lot of people out there. The boomsite access was already 3/4 full when I drove by at 5 AM. I'm thinking about going out of blufflands park on Friday.

      Kinda cold and windy yesterday. Fish really didn't seem to mind though. Finding ggod sized fish was the goal for the afternoon. Started off in a feeding bay that has a section of deeper water in it. This deeper water is where I found all my fish. Crappies were holding tight to the weed cover around the hole, while gills were closer to the surface. It wasn't fast fishing by any means, still I managed to find some real quality pannies

      I have two Vexilar transducers.    1) Thru hull/trolling motor- used.  From FL8 2) New never used, high speed.       I looked on Vexilar's site, The one's they sell say FL8 or FL18.  Checked FAQ and they look like they are interchangeable with other models???  Can text pictures-what do you have?
