FYI, the images of Forest and Big Marine are from sometime early '07 before the snow.

You are incorrect sir.

The photo is actually from Feb 2005.

Most are atleast a few years old, still a cool program.

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?

      Based on Cliff's water temp of 38°F, I'm not too sure about Dec. 3-5.  Think it will be more like Dec. 7-9.  I have ice fever and I need a cure.  Last year's first ice PB of 29", 8½# shown below would definitely cure that, but it may not be until Dec. 15-16 now.

      Hey all,   I'm sure everyone has heard, but we're finally getting some nice freezing weather heading in from up north (https://weather.com/weather/tenday/l/56303:4:US). Early next week nightly lows will be sub 10's. So with ice season quickly approaching, I'd like to know what everyone usually does getting prepared to walk on water. As a newbie to ice fishing (only done it the last two seasons), I'm curious to see how everyone preps their gear and what other things you all do before going out on the ice. I finally got my hands on a nice flasher and power auger to add to the rest of my gear, any suggestions for nifty equipment to help make things easier?    This is open for any discussion on any ice fishing tips for newer fishers! Please feel free to ask questions or discuss your prep process for the season. Let's all hope for this forecast to follow through and get some good ice out there.    -JK

      Forecast temperature-wise looks favorable for ice mid- to late-next week, but it does not look like the winds are going to cooperate.

      Would be nice to get some ice that's for sure. No doubt these forums have gone cold. 5-6 years ago there would be dozens of posts daily just on this thread. Maybe the newness of these forums has wore off or because everything has been hashed over a couple hundred times I don't know. I'm ready for some ice fishing I know that.
