Nice pictures. Hopefully I can make it up there again this summer to give musky fishing a try. I'm afraid you'll get me addicted to it and I'll have to go buy my own gear!

I emailed last week about running into you on the east dock at BOTL...still trying to figure out a weekend that works for me. I'll give you a heads up for sure if I figure something out.

Do you have any tips on a place to camp for a weekend? I'd like to be somewhere close to BOTL, because I think I could pay them to let me dock a boat there...

I don't know of any campgrounds close to BOTL but they do have very good rates after the holiday weekend. Not sure it would be worth camping for what you could stay at the resort for. Give Steve a call and ask him what kind of deal you can get...might get lucky!

Good idea. I have a couple buddies I might be able to convince to come out with me. Thanks for the suggestion.

      Ice conditions varied on Saturday. 6" to 12". There is a pressure ridge to look out for. I saw guys with 1/2 ton trucks and fish houses all over. We chose the ATV to get around. Still to early for trucks in my opinion.  We caught fish but definitely had to stay mobile.

      I use the Clam Ice Armor--the ones for about $69.  Not great for dexterity but the warmest I have found.  Get a good muff like Cabelas sells with thinsulite and puta few hand warmers inside.  Work well and keep hands moderately dry. Or, get goretex/thinsulite mists and put a hand warmer in each one.  They slide off easily.   Haven't tried electric.

      Nope. Not even close.

      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.

      Dakota lithium has a cool little box like that.  Comes with a lithium battery thats half the weight but a bit pricey at around $200
