any of you outgoing, electro savvy, technical guys want to mount a few web cams along the shore and up the mouths of the streams. that way I can have the deisel idling rods and reels ready for the ice to break free and come down those streams. oh yeah, maybe a good digital thermometer for the water temps near the cameras would be great too. I got about 20 or 30 bucks for ya to help out in the expenses. thanx for the help let us know when you get it all set up and online!!! If there is already something like this, the website address would be great! grin.gifgrin.gifwink.gif

There is one by the Aerial Bridge; there you can at least see the mouth of the harbor.

try using google earth to view the shore. I don't know much about it but if it's in realtime you should be able to make out ice from open water i would think.

Cool site Orlip.

Didn't see any N'shore rivers though. smirk.gif

youngie22, keep checking in, when the rivers open I'm sure someone will speak up. Pray for rain.

GOOGLE Earth is awesome as it is, but its not real time. frown.gif They periodically take sectional pictures and patch them together. One section can and will be bordered by others taken during different seasons and weather conditions.

I still dig it though. cool.gif

The guys at FM will be your most reliable asset!

I live on the vermillion river in Hastings, (awesome little stream). Watching it rage w/ snow melt made me get even more excited for the shore. What a "flash" snow melt the last few days. THe waterfalls down here look really cool w/ all this whater. Don't think the brownies in there no what is going on. THanx far that info on the cameras; had no clue those were there. I think google earth isn't very real time, would be interested in nowing what tyoe of cycles they might run. Gotta get out, need some trout!

      I would say gas augers are still getting better. For example my solo engine always starts never leaks and emissions are very very low. I don't think I burned a half gallon of gas the whole winter and I drilled maybe 500 holes max still not a lot but pretty good for only using a cup or so of fuel an outing. Not saying electrics are bad but for me I just can't pull my self away from the convince of gas. Every winter I think I do give more and more respect to cordless drill or electric set ups. Well then also with this last winter we had a goo full 24 inches of ice for maybe 3 weeks this it starting melting fast

      I like the electrics too but it will be a necessity for me to finally give up my gasser for good.  One tank on it can cut many, many holes.  Batteries are expensive so I don't plan on buying extras for those days I plan to explore.   I think it was mentioned on the forums before: With the mapping apps and gps we have available now, we probably all drill fewer holes over the season than we used to.  The problem I have though is I don't repeat locations many times over the winter. Heck, not even lakes that often.  I've been carrying the gas, electric and hand auger pretty much all winter.

      There are still the guys that argue up and down about electrics but they are getting fewer and fewer. They are all very strong people though,I wouldn't want get into a fight with anyone that drills 200 holes a day and carries around a 35# + auger
