Well, I just got back from fishing up in Ontario again. Fishing was somewhat slow. I ended up with 2 Lakers- one about 12 lbs and another one around 9 lbs. A friend of mine caught one around 16 lbs. We had alot of lookers, but not alot of biters. We also ended up fishing Walleyes the first night up there which was fun. Caught a real nice eye around 5 lbs and a few more real nice fish smile.gif Last night, we ended up getting stuck out there in a white out snowstorm which shut the fishing down to zero. Ended up with a foot of snow in just a few hours and we ended up getting the truck buried out there. Thank god for the people from Manitoba who were in the same boat we were. We ended up helping each other out to get out of there. I never knew a 3/4 ton truck could get airborne...but I witnessed it! All in all, good trip with the exception of our fishing time reduced drastically from the weather-but that's the way she goes...We will get them next year.

I can finally say the ice season for me is over. What an incredible season it was! Caught alot of real nice fish, made some really good friends, and just spent almost the entire winter doing what I really love- Ice fishing! Hope everybody had as much fun as I did!!!

Take care until next ice season,

Justin

What lake were you fishing? Numerous lakes we usually fish have been fairly slow compared to previous years. At least the fish you did get were pigs!

Lake of the Woods. Yeah, I think the water levels have alot to do with where the fish are now and spots that used to produce well. We did see alot of fish, but that storm that moved in on us really screwed things up. I am going to be putting in serious time up there next ice season as I have a cabin to use up there all winter. I just wish I didn't have to wait so long to get back up there as the next few weekends will probably be great weather! Ah, well, those fish will be there 9 months from now! wink.gif

      Got more picks? Not sure with just this one. First glance, looks like an emerald shiner. Welcome to FM!

      I have an Eskimo and love it. I fish a lot and punch a lot of holes most outtings. I had to rebuild the carb this year, but I've had the auger for 4 years or so... Always starts no matter how cold...I've drilled with jiffy and can't stand them... The blades on the Eskimos last a long time and are cheap when you have to replace them... I drilled with a SM last year and really liked it, but they are so pricey. I got my z51 shark dirt cheap ($220 shipped to my door) from Glens Army Navy in Rapids. I'd go Eskimo or Strikemaster if I was you.

      I have Frabill Icesuit (Large) for sale. Never worn in the elements. I am selling it because with the warmer temperatures here in the south (I'm from Georgia) This suit will be in the closet more times than it will be used and on top of that my dickies coverall with under layers kept me warm just fine for my winter fishing trip. I bought this suit from Presleys Outdoor online for $250. Willing to let it got for $220. (Shipping included in price) I can send more pictures of the suit if you need.

      Sound fair?? Let me know....
