I walked out on the ice near Cambridge on Sat.

3 inches of crystal clear ice.

It felt very stable.

I went home and did some on the honey do list and woke up Sunday morning with visions of spearing my first fish of the year.

I got a late start Sunday morning, went out about 9:30~10:00 AM and the ice was not so good. I made it about 20’ from the bank and it started cracking so that was it for me.

The ice was still just as thick but it definitely was not as strong Sunday.

By 4:30 PM we had open water in the middle of the lake again.

I got a report from Lake Winnie that they are putting their spear shacks out on Friday and they have some openings. I won’t be able to make it up there this Friday but I am thinking of going up there the following weekend.

A resort near the 3rd river flowage (I don't think I can put the resort name here) is reporting:

Quote:

Winter is here in full force it has been very cold and we do have a dusting of snow on the ground. We had our first ice on the 18th and now it is at 5 1/2 inches. We will be ready to spear on Friday the 28th so come and make a new Thanksgiving tradition here. Spearing at its best.

Hey Elwood per or conversation on Saturday regarding potatoes here's my response back from the email I sent the DNR:

Q:"Are there any regulations regarding using eggshells or potatoes down the

hole while spearing?"

A: "A hand full or two to break up the bottom a bit is okay, a bucket load dumped would not be"

    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
