You are incorrect sir.

The photo is actually from Feb 2005.

Eh? The "Mansion" on 1st is there, and the shape of the little track on the north side of first matches what was there this year.

Pretty sure it is from early this winter.

The "Mansion" on 1st has been there for a couple of years now. If you look at the photo over by Willow point, you'll notice that the giant house they started building early last fall is not there.

Notice the large oval track on the north side of second lake. That is from the Wilke fishing contest that has not been held for the last two years.

I haven't owned the car that is in my driveway (according to Google Earth) for over two years!

Ah ha, you are correct.

When was the mansion burned down? I thought that was fall of 2005?

      Fished Cannon lake this evening. I bounced around from 12-5ft of water and started to mark fish in 8ft so I set up there until dark. I saw a bunch of fish come in for a look but not one nibble. Tried every color and style spoon and jig I had but nothing.

      Best thing you can do if you won't be around is to put the house on fresh ice, don't drill any holes, and put it on blocks.  When people get into trouble is if it gets windy and they have open holes under the house, that rain starts blowing around on top of the ice, and starts swirling down into the holes under the house....that swirling water EATS ice, and can sink a house pretty quick.     As as far as the ice on the lakes, if you have 14-15 inches of good ice like most places around, you'll have no worries if you do what is posted above.

      Rented a sleeper out on Garrison Bay Sunday night with some friends. Fishing was slow but we managed a few walleyes. Best went 23" on the rattle reel. Was a lot of fun though, wish the bite could have been better. How is everyone else doing out there? Any good bites or has it pretty much slowed down for everyone.     Here is a video of the trip:
