Ace, hope you enjoy retirement from the ‘guide’ gig.  My son and I have sure come a long way since you first showed us around the lake all those years ago.  We still fish some of the spots to which you took us and I even caught my second largest musky ever on one of them.  That fish and many others I owe to you.  I’m sure your guide services have put a smile on the faces of a lot of other folks over the years, even when you weren’t in the boat.  What you taught folks is a gift that keeps on giving for sure. Take care and hope to cross paths with you in the water someday!  Brian Fitzpatrick

I know I will miss guiding and the friends I have made over the years. I guess I'll just have to fish more to get over all the time spent guiding. ;)  Have a great season everybody.

Ace, If you feel you know to go guiding one more time because you miss it so much I'll go with you and I don't charge anything.  😁

      Fished the SW corner today about 2 miles out. Lowest amount of ice I found was 10" and a few spots well over 20". Before anyone gets too excited I'm pretty sure these spots were where the ice push up on itself or below itself. Rough ice in general. Marked a lot of fish, tried everything and eventually got a few at dusk on a dead stick and a spoon. No big cracks but a few about half a foot and completely open. Nice to get out but was a long walk out and back.

      Well I wish you guys would do it after walleye closes. The last few years you guys have done it on the final weekend of walleye  so some people won't do it . Cats don't close so you can do it whenever you want.

      Didn't get to swing the sledge on Saturday. Had a bum ankle that has kept me sidelined and was feeling pretty good on Friday so I got out and about shopping. May have over did it and suffered a little bit of a set back but it's pretty good today. Should be able to swing the hammer tomorrow.

      Open water right in front of launch on linwood. 2 guys went through this morning. Up to their waists in water. Just be careful walking out. Had 9 inches everywhere I drilled on the lake.
