NORMAL ICE CONDITIONS

HI KELLY,
JUST WONDERING WHEN YOU FOLKS NORMALLY START DRIVING VEHICLES ON THE ICE? (ON A NORMAL YEAR.)
I HAVE HEARD REPORTS IN THE PAST OF PEOPLE FLYING OVER IN THE SUMMER & SEEING CRAPPIE SCHOOLS A MILE WIDE, 4 MILES LONG, THIS SEEMS
LIKE A REAL FISH STORY TO ME, HOWEVER IF ITS TRUE ARE THEY STILL SEEING THOSE KINDS OF NUMBERS?
YOU TRULY HAVE A FANTASTIC FISHERY, I WAS DOWN THERE AROUND 25 TIMES LAST WINTER, AND
JUST ABOUT EVERY TRIP IS WAS A BLAST, EVEN THOU I HAVE YET TO SEE A TRUE 2 LB CRAPPIE.
THANKS,
FISHMIESTER

About X-Mass time or just before seems to when people can start moving houses out on the lake. Last year a lot of people started moving houses out on the lake X-Mass day, I waited until just after New Years. I usually wait 2 weeks after Hillman's are out. smile.gif hehehehehe
The story about seeing fish has been around from the very first months people started getting a lot of crappies. I don't think it whould be posible to see fish down very deep in URL's dark water but it is a great story. Each year the school gets a little bigger. Soon they will be coming up on the beach and chewing on cabins. grin.gif
I've seen a lot of them over 2 pounds but never on my line. frown.gif

There was a story a few years ago on Lake Erie that a pilot called in and reported an oil slick. It turned out to be a school of large walleyes right near the surface that was about the size of what you described. This is actually a true story, and I think somehow the names and places got changed byt he rumor mill and that's how it came to URL. I'm speculating of course, but I agree with Kelly; I've never seen the water clear enough that you could see fish in it.

      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.
