Has anyone noticed water problems with the increased snow load? Hoping to try Babbler's this weekend. Thanks

Did'nt get any water on the ice yesterday out that way where I was drilling the holes. May get kinda sloppy on the pond soon though!

Thanks Fisky. Could you get off the road a little with 4 wheel drive pickup?

If you drill right inside the Jetty at Arneson's you should stay dry.

Depends on the truck and the driver I'd reckon. Some were getting off the beaten path and Babbler had a few tracks cut to get off maintrack here and there. Snow has kinda firmed/compacted since last week but some drifts/areas are plenty deep enough for hanging up good if you drive into them!!!

Ripper....Looked like a Trackhoe working/dredging at Arnesons so your shallow evening spot out of the wind may be shut down? Maybe be able to get a small boat in there though!

Fisky, rocky point is dredging the passage way so the boats can get through. Last fall it was only 2 feet in depth through that channel. I spoke with Ed Arnesen at new years time and he told me that was going to get done.Now that is taking care of business in favor of the customer!Way to go Arnesens!!

I thought they were done with that last fall?? Apparently not though. Packer, you might have to go to the west end of the jetty then being they are working in there. They have really been biting by boat slip number 13!

If you need to use my sled, pick it up on the way thru!

      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol

      Making sure all equipment is in working order is one thing I always try to take care of before taking my first trip of the season. Nothing is quite as frustrating as a flasher with a dead battery or an auger that wont start.  I have always been a big believer having the proper equipment with to stay safe come first ice.... These items include a spud bar to check ice thickness, a section of rope,  a life jacket and a set of ice picks. Having a second person with is also a smart move when the ice is thin. Talking to those "in the know" about local bodies of water and current ice conditions is also a good thing to do.  Remember, first ice is usally not a consistant thickness, so use caution...and trust your gut...if something feels not right, it usally isn't. Good luck and stay safe, my friends :-)
