Mike and Diane,

Just wanted to say thanks again for the hospitality over the last couple of days. Can't wait to get back up there again soon. I will definately recommend you to anyone that is looking for a place to stay in that area. Now just need to figure out a way for me to make a living up there and then we'll be neighbors grin.gif

Paul~Glad you guys were able to come up and Barry was able to do so well his first trip up, is he telling everyone how easy it is to get a limit smile.gif
I don't know about you moving up this way...that would be one more person for Mike to go fishing with and then I would never see him around here!

Hey Paul...room in the Inn just for you (although somedays it's more like the nuthouse smile.gif!)

As of last night the accesses were doing really well and people were out all over with no problems. If you want, give us a call later and we'll give you today's update once people start coming back in. LOTS of really nice crappies came through the fish cleaning room last night and this morning!

Drake,

Sorry we didn't get to say goodbye last night. It was really late when we rolled through there and didn't see any lights on.

Just an update for you. Ice conditions were really good with 24 inches of ice in most places and the ice surface, once you got out a little from the accesses, was about the smoothest I've seen it all year.

We got a lot of nice fish with some of them just topping 14 inches. I will e-mail the photo of Tyler with his northern, not exactly sure how big it was, as we left the tape in the truck, but I would guess he was 38-40 inches. Tyler's face grin.gif. 11 years old and already experienced the trip of a lifetime.

So thanks again, and We will see you again this spring.

Thanks for the picture Paul~tell Tyler it's hanging in the office and the guys are already admiring it! Looks like the northern is nearly as big as Tyler smile.gif Loved his "thumbs up"..definitely a trip he will always remember. It's great when the kids are able to do well..the look on their faces says it all grin.gif

Hey Jiggle! Send the pics to us and I'll print em' out and put it up! What started out as a board is now also all around the board and starting on the next wall! Especially love the pic's of the kids smile.gif When you send it just let me know your young un's name (Jiggle Jr.?) as I like to put people's first names under it and something about the pic.

      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.
    • pikeandchester
      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.

      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.

      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?
