Who would have thought the I should have brought sunscreen up to the pond with me this weekend!!! was on the ice for 10+ hours on Saturday and didn't realize the burn until I got back to the shack on shore!! Ouch!! braved the crack on the west side and hit a few different spots, but only managed a few nice fish. drilled over 100 holes for the weekend but the bite was tough for us. they were here, but getting them to take was another story!! this was my last trip for the year. it's pretty fun having the entire lake to myself! On friday night when I was out, I honestly didn't see another living soul on the lake. Saturday I saw some traffic, but still pretty light.

Sunburn can happen and did for me too. Took me by surprise as well.

The sun had no effect on me Sunday, but I did still get burned twice: nothing but the cutest little perch stealing all my bait all day AND my van broke through the 2" crust over 6" of water at Mile & 1/4 reef on the south end. Thank goodness "Big Daddy" was home to answer the pleas of a foolish late ice driver.

One word of advice for anyone venturing onto the big pond: STAY OFF THE ROADS! Water ponds up between the snowbanks and refreezes, leaving me spinning my 2-wheel drive tires to no avail. Also watch out for previous perm house locations as they can be thin, too.

Otherwise, as you stated, it was nice to have the entire pond (at least as far as my low power binox could see) to

myself!

I spent Saturday night on the couch with a icepack on my face. 8a.m. - 6p.m. was all I could take. Picked up a few nice perch on South gravel. Moved to July Bar...Nothing. Moved to the Boot and caught 8 eyes right on top in the middle of the day. We wanted to eat, so we moved to 7 mile and did pretty good on the inside turn on the NW thumb (32 FOW). 10 nice Jumbos made a great meal for me and my brother-in-law. It's open water time for me.

      I got a good idea........maybe have a couple more beers and not worry so much about your neighbors. In fact invite them over for a dinner and a beer and discuss your issues...that's how my neighborhood settles issues.  Man to man...works out pretty good....

      Send him some literature on CWD. Like FishingCT mentioned, disease spreads at common gathering points where deer may rub noses. CWD, for example, spreads through a prion or protein that can spread this way.  This spread of disease is an example of why disease in raised herds is such a big deal.

      Feeding deer, especially in the winter, is a really good way to spread disease. Maybe you won't have to worry about them as much next winter after all

      Because I'm sure he was serious about Molotov cocktails.  Is there an eyeroll button?

      I agree with your neighbor , it isn't a big deal , your grass will grow back , and my guess is with the spring rains , all poop pellets will disintegrate and be totally gone soon , if they are not already gone ..  my question is what the heck are you planning to do with Molotov cocktails ?  If I saw you toss one at the deer , I would be calling that CO , and he WOULD have something to write YOU a ticket for . .  And if you flung one onto my property , well let's just say you would have a big issue to deal with yourself ,, that would be me !!! My suggestion is to just relax ..

      Fence and pressure from the neighborhood is your best best until there is a law against it. Good luck.

      A letter from all the neighbors or a neighborhood meeting with him sounds like a good first thing to try. Maybe he'll get the hint. Better than war.
