Recommended Posts

Guest

Hi guys,
Can you please give us an ice update?
How much? How far out? The Bite?
I know it's been good and cold up there, we're looking to come up a bunch this year.

There is about 10 inches of ice where we put our houses about 3 miles out, the bite has been slow but should pick up some with more people to look for them.

ScottS,
An S10 could work real good. Years ago when Hillman's dropped their "bug" through with the V-plow on they set a house up over it until the ice got thick enough to get it out of the lake. They decided that the best fishing was right outside the drivers window. grin.gif

AAHH come on rigaman somebody has to be first to see if the ice is good. smile.gif I do like the Big Wheel idea. Doesn't it just cause a smile to imagine jigglestick heading across the lake on a Big Wheel. grin.gif Compass on the handle bars and his auger bouncing along behind. Maybe a pair of goggles also. cool.gif

rigaman, basically what the humor was saying is 10 inches probably isn't enough for a Blazer. No one is going to tell you it is. That is for you to find out yourself.

I like the Big Wheel idea though. If you talk nice maybe Kelly will let you borrow his. He usually parks it at West Wind. It is the one with the extra set of training wheels on grin.gif

I just checked Rogers resort site and he drove the f-150 with the plow out yesterday.

I won't get a chance to wet a line until Christmas break - so be sure to save a few fish for me!

      About the Rusties... I thought I posted this but it must have gone away with the server glitch.  Rusties have made it through oak narrows and are marching west. To the best of my knowledge they haven't gotten as far as Wakemup so Norwegian and HeadOlakes are still free of them.  When they get to us, I have my crab boil, trap, and old bay ready.  I figured trapping them east and importing them west might get me in trouble.   I can wait.

      Me too, going up for the week of July 4th for cabin projects and fishing and maybe some trail riding on the SxS. Oh, maybe some R&R and Coors Light too.

      I also have a ICIH, with a loud ac unit, would like to see a thermostat for it but most of time time I have house plugged into 120 volt outlet.

      Wow - 7 days of posts gone.  Seems like more than that.  Oh-well.  My next trip is a week and a half away.

      Thanks for the info. I will look into getting a control box.

      Per Rick on HSO they switched to a new server. Had a glitch in the database that lost a couple days of posts on HSO and FM

      Good luck fishing. It's a great way to spend retirement!

      Does anyone know where the more recent posts have gone? There were some posts from earlier in the week. BTW, not seeing any more floating dead minnows.....

      I had my last official guide trip Monday and Tuesday and we fished for Smallmouth bass. It was one of my regulars that I have fished with for over 10 years. George and I have caught 100's of Smallies over the years and this year was no different. We boated around 65 bass in two days in less than perfect conditions. Most were on topwater baits of one kind or another and the rest were taken on crank baits. I wasn't able to fish to much so George caught most of the fish. 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.
