Dang wind kept me off the lake, and id imagine most everyone else. Finally made it to my house on 4 mile via Appeldorn's "Billy goat path"

I thought you all might enjoy the video of the trip I made

We were one of the groups trying to get out from the Wharf on Friday, but they couldn't get the roads plowed. The west side of the lake was much better and we got a sleeper there instead. Of course, the fishing was still terrible no matter what side we were on but less wind and more open roads!

Nice video

That is as close as I got to my shack all weekend, atleast it is still above the ice I guess. I squatted in other shacks all weekend. never fished and nearly got alcohol poisoning. Great end to the year... frown

Haha I didn't stop to pee. I walked out to give perspective the pile is taller than my head. I suppose that what I looks like though!

I was out on 4 mile, drove all the way out but the road didn't go to my house. I tried all those different driveways hoping one lead to the road to my house but no such luck. so I just ended up stopping on the single lane road (right at 1 min) then I paused the video. I had to hike it 200 feet in dang need waist deep snow to my house. Got it ready to be pulled. Put everything inside in my portable and pulled it back through the snow to the truck. Needless to say I was exhausted.

      I fish out of a wheel house, hub or flip. Over the years I have found a camera to be an extremely fishing tool as long as water is somewhat clear. (Dont work well on Red or LOTW). My Flasher or Showdown both mark fish before they show up on camera due to cone area greater than camera view. Biggest advantage over flashsr/showdown is the "light bite" which happens often on ice. With flasher, red (fish) consumes green (bait) turning green to red indicating fish on - setting hook and miss. With camera I see fish barley lip the minnow/worm/plastic often hold a few to 15 seconds than suck bait in and instentally spit it out aka the miss. With camera you see the suck in, set the hook, fish on. Watching the many behaviours really adds to wisdom. Sometimes like last Sunday watching my grandkids playing and learning with Gills & Perch was extreanily gratifying. My camera is self built, in a suitcase totally push button wireless to drop, retrive, rotate left/hight, one button record high def.

      😄 yeah, actual lumber would be littering.  I just meant that as a slang expression for wood, aka branches.     For what it’s worth, I think you know I’m also one who appreciates a good muskie and will gladly abide by conservation efforts for the specie.  I just don’t put any one fish higher above all others when it comes to the management of a lake.  Except maybe lake trout! 🙃
