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!
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.
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.
