Isle bay is over rated. Try the others and look for cabbage or green weeds. 8-14 feet is my normal depths. It’s just finding them that takes time.

I may be giving it a try next Sat. Seems like the best time is when it melts down a bit right before honey combing.  Not sure if they move in to eat all the craap felling through the ice but seems like they move in the bays more then. If at all some years?

Dang more snow. That may put me off for at least another weekend.  I like it when it's down to almost bare ice and melting.

Guess I'll smoke a Turkey this Sat. :)

Picture from Isle Bay today. :(

The issue now is lake travel. Getting to much wet snow for vehicles without anyone plowing, kind of heavy and wet for hand pulling a sled and to warm and heavy to take the sled back out of storage! :(

Boy, those businesses up there have got to be hurting.  Nobody there.  No roads plowed.  Very sad.

      As of last weekend ice was 13 inches in most places. Sure to be thicker now with the cold temps. Just be careful, even during the coldest winters, there can be some thin spots out there.

      This crunchy snow is tearing Finns feet up. I am thinking of getting him some booties so he run around without making the house look like a murder happened

      Was sledding both on and off the staked trail yesterday.  Was COLD!!!  Happy to report that where we were (W side) most of the slush is frozen and not a problem. Traveled over a few pockets of watery slush, but they were small and easily managed.  Everything else is firm and crusted over. It’s minus 34 as I write this, so expect that any last remaining pockets of slush will be pretty firm  soon enough.

      14 inches of ice on the west end of Francis on Tuesday, but the access was heaved up so bad I don't think I could have pulled the wheel house out. Caught 1 sunny but only fished for about  half an hour. Mostly checking ice thickness. Checked the ice on Elysian, 12 inches near the south access and 10 inches further out.

      Also just 4 fun .     Tom , Fred Bear , Max Power , n Mrs W !   There you are back in the wild again , back where you belong ! Does Fred tell Max to go up on the ridge while he goes down into the swamp to get that pesky squirrel 🐿 , or something like that?   Glad they are real bro buds and enjoy there digs were they hang , and maybe some digs in the sand come time the spring decides to say “hello all”. Oh if we the people only had it so rough as those doggies you got there .🐶   As for Bobby Orr and needing longer legs 🏒 , your pic shows that your all legs , maybe just need to practice more , or shave , nothin personal whatsoever  , just sayin that old number 4 didn’t have a beard .   And last but not least ,  hope that those K-9’s didn’t get into those baked beans to heavily as burping may be the least of your issues !! Keep on rocken and rockin !    🎸  🎵  🎤  🎧  🎚️         A

      36 degrees BELOW zero this morning, the ice is firming up. LOL
    • PRO-V
      -23 degrees out in GR right now. Saying -25 tonight. This might harden things up a bit.🤔

      I bought a Striker snowmobile jacket and bibs at the Red Rock store up the Fernberg about 8 years ago. Really like them!
