 The best part of mining, is the lake that is left when the ore is gone. Let us show you how we catch trout on a pit lake. Enjoy.

Great video, we have a hand full of pit lakes by us but I have never fished them. It’s my understanding that some of them are close to 400 feet deep, not sure how accurate that is but that’s what I have been told.

I think  some pits get close to 650' deep. I only fished them in summer, never winter.

For anyone questioning the date this was filmed, it was the last week of trout season. Unfortunately I was not able to post it till trout season was over due to family needs. Also,if your interested in fishing pit lakes. Go to the DNR lake finder and type in "pit". Be very careful when ice fishing them. I feel the ice is never as thick and they tend to have springs.

      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.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
