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

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
