We have time, let the ice get good and safe before we start making road trips from the cities and pushing the limits. I am a Waskish native and you will not catch me out on early ice on Red, one good wind and you will be deep water trolling with you ice rods if you are fortunate enough not to be standing on a crack when it bust apart. She is a big unforgiving water. I always worry about my fellow sportsmen trying to be the first ones out on Red. We do not need to start the URL ice season off on the wrong foot. Plus that is one very long walk from shore to get to the fish, and even a longer walk back soaking wet in the cold.

Well put Jon. Nobody wants get up to Red more than me. But I don't need to be the first guy out either. It seems the 4 inch ice rule barely applies up there. I've seen a real good sheet of ice on Red turn to ice chunk soup in a matter of a day. Anyways lets all plat it safe and we'll have a blast up there, and catch all the fish we want. Good Luck everyone, Kid

and is Patsy planning to move it anytime during this ice season?

12 1/2 pound didn't need the extension but the 8 foot periscope came in real handy. smile.gif

I really cann't believe it. People are talking about getting out on the ice before "Shorty" has even been out there. confused.gif We all know it is safe 2 (TWO) weeks AFTER "Shorty's" first trip out there.

Yes Patsy will probably move the ridges. You know kinda like the decorating thing, "I think it would look better over there. No, that's not right, move it a little to the left. No, that's not right either, put it back where it was FOR NOW." grin.gif

Great analogy Kelly, about both subjects. I am already nervous for the first van ride Shorty is going to give me out on the lake to see his road. And Patsy moving the things around, well, I better stay out of that one. She is a friend of mine and I would like to keep it that way. See you next week.

this report is from rogers campground

Saturday, November 26, 2005

Just came off the lake and everything looks good as far as I walked, found the ice to be 5 to 6 inches all the way out to 8 tenths of a mile, that is where I encountered my fist big crack. I could have stepped over it easily but I chose not too. I did leave a marker where I stopped and it is very close to where I started off last year, I did not check the depth but it should be close to 12 feet deep

      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.
