OK, so we're going to try the nite bite, but how safe is it going to be

We are going to give it a try on Friday, I am wondering if it's going to be safe to bring the wheeler out in the dark, wondering if anyone has any tips on where to go from the landing on pike bay loop. I don't mind catching pout if anyone has any tips on where to fish them at?

Yooper, I have a buddy out there as we speak checking out some spots with the snowmobile. I have heard of ice up to 9 inches, but we will see. I will leave a report in the morning as I may head out there after work as well.

BE CAREFUL!!! I was out there yesterday afternoon and got stuck three times in the slush... Ice was anywhere from 5 inches to 9.5 inches.. Some pressure ridges are forming but they are hard to see with the snow cover... There is around 12-14 inches of snow on the ice..

I was able to four wheel everywhere I went... There is some thin ice from reports I've been hearing on the south end by the access....

Take your time and bring a chisel with the check ice at times... Good Luck..

Pout tips! Finally a subject I can get excited about! grin.gif There's a whole bunch of deep humps out in the "middle" of Pike Bay. Find one that tops off around 25 to 30 feet and punch a bunch of holes. Hard bottomed humps seem to be best. My favorite lure is a buckshot spoon in perch/green glow. I actually use smaller ones (1/4 oz) and pack the treble with meat. I lost a monster pout out there last winter. Hope you nail 'em.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.
