Between yardwork,FM sales work and getting the race car and trailer ready and also getting the boat ready there is no time for fun now. blush.gif

Now, when that is all done this next week, look out as Tom will be back in action. cool.gif I cannot complain as I hunt and fish almost all year long. smile.gif Sometimes things do need to get done. frown.gif

Thanks for thinking of me and my lack of fishing. In a few weeks it will be catfishing, mushroom picking, racing and the trip to the Sturgeon event. Then it will be racing and fishing all summer long until bow hunting in September and then all fall hunting and fishing again. Its just one big circle.

Sometimes a little work in between. Takes money to play and I play alot. smile.gifsmile.gifsmile.gif

Sounds like many lakes are open or nearly open. That ice sure did go fast. Heck, it wasn't more than 1.5 weeks ago when TO and I saw 18" out there!

      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.

      Drove by Grays Bay this morning. The one and only house left has now partially fell thru. Not sure how this one is coming out.
