Muskie entering hole     She came back a while later and was in and out for the last hour of my last sit of the season     Pike sampling a decoy  

I got a DL Smithing spear this weekend. 

Thanks MJ - you too.   I finally got a hole cut yesterday.  No luck while exploring a new lake but at least it got the blood flowing again.   Plus I got to swim the last two Grumpy

I made a trip to town to get some carpet and lumber. I'm changing the hole location in my 6x8 perm. I have the hole in the end right now and going to change it to a center hole so 4 of us can sit and watch. That is tomorrows project.

Just got the house set up on Lake George in St Francis. Waters nice and clear slight green tinge to it.

17 1/2" of good clear ice.

First decoy in the water... Baby Dorkfish...

Thanks Gordie. The big gator had a 10" largemouth in it. We put to 30's on the ice too. Great day to be out there

Good luck MJ. How do you like the new hole placement?

Works great. 4 of us in here today and we can all watch.

Do you have 2 doors MJ or is there room to walk around the hole? Won't be this year but I would like to build a 6x8 at some point

One door. There is enough room to step across the hole. Your left foot is on one side of the hole and your right steps over. I attached a grab handle on the wall so you have something to hold onto when you cross. I guess ideally two doors would be nice but this set up works just fine.

I have yet to get out once this year. frown

I doubt my husband and I will even put the permanent house out. I'll just spear out of the portable whenever we go.

We were going to chase flags today but decided to not fight the cold. We chose the warm spear shack instead. I'm glad we did we've seen 5 different pike in the first half hour.

I finally got out today, but the pike weren't moving. Saw 2 small pike, and some really nice bass. Hopefully tomorrow will be better on a different lake.

Me, Moll, and Joe had an awesome day on the ice. We seen lots of different pike including some pushing 30" and one over that. We just watched and let them all swim to grow bigger for another day.

My house is out and your neighbor knows where it is so use it.

Isn't it fun just playing with the big ones and bringing them back in time after time,

Thanks for the offer. I had my house on that lake last year and didn't have much luck. I haven't decided on what lake I wanna try, but maybe I can convince the hubby to cut me a hole.

Bring the house and a auger and I will cut the hole. We could use a couple more houses to circle the wagons and keep the tipup guy's a bit farther away.

Got out this morning from about 8:30-11:00. Had a muskie swim through right away, and then nothing for a long time. Eventually a couple of pike came in and gave me some action.

Staring through a hole in the ice.

Happy New Year wish I could be doing that, but I can hardly walk so I have to sit at home and go stir crazy mad

      I would explore helical footings.  Why not? Below is a company I’ve worked with. Not sure if they work up north or if they know someone that does? They are knowledgeable, a phone call should do er’ and see what you can find out. Good luck!   https://goliathtechmn.com/

      ice is still looking good, have roughly 24inces give or take a little. Cats have been kinda tough to find in any real numbers. I have done a bit of scouting this week.  I think I might have an area pinned down that has activity... Will do a bit more scouting this weekend and into next week.   Will Have  The location posted by Mid week for sure.  Will also keep monitoring ice conditions.

      Well, might as well add some details to Royce's pics...lol With the longer days and warming weather pattern this week.  We have started to see more quality fish moving shallow to take advantage of the food and cover skinny water provides. Panfish start to move out from the basins during late winter to feed on the insects that become more active as the days get longer and warmer. There is also more oxygen available due to the weeds starting to grow again.     We have been finding more quality fish showing up in the 8-12 ft areas close to the greenest thickest weed available.  Insect type baits  like the p3 spug, the chigger fry and mayfly rigged on 3-4mm tungsten jigs have been working best.

      Never been there in may but early to mid June has provided lots of great memories!

      Have fished 15 hours the last yesterday and today without catching a walleye. Y store only had crappie minnows and Fuel and Food had no minnows Thursday morning when I came up so I had to fish with the crappie minnows. My fish house neighbor caught 3 walleyess yesterday morning on pike suckers so I went back into town to get some after bait was delivered. Didn't help. I have only caught four 15" tulibee and a 12" perch. Switching to lake trout the rest of the weekend. 34" of ice. Gas sugar barely made it through. McKinley Park landing has a lot of water on the plowed road as you enter the lake. The Ice Castles may have a hard time getting off the lake this weekend. Good luck if you venture out and be careful.

      I haven't got mine either.  But I don't intend to fish again until there's open water.  Carry on Bob
