It is the small brown house closest to the hospital on the east side of the lake close to shore. I will run home and grab my auger around 11:00.

Its all good, ya guys didnt miss much the past 2 days, Im thinking of moving the shack again thinking a deep drop off about 150yards from a shut off aerator max depth 44' so im thinkin 10-15fow on the drop. Might be better I like havin 2 holes when Im alone cuz then I can use all my reel weeds in one hole n not have to worry about them tangling with a fish that I spear but will still attract some fish. Still waiting on the 40+"

northern I saw in the lake 3 weeks ago... wish he'd show up again smile

Hi! This is Heidi..Laska girlfriend. The boyfriend is outta town and i am doing a fishin contest tomorrow..NO NOT SPEARING but some good ol fishin. I am just wondering if i can get a clue on what you guys might use to catch like bass, trout, ect. They got lots of cash prizes! I got some waxies for sunfish and croppies and perch but i dont know what else to bring. Laska left me all his fishin stuff and gave me his name for this forum so if i have questions about fishin i can ask someone that might have a clue?!?! Then next weekend Im goin spearin on my own! smile

If you wanna catch a big ole northern just get a small decoy sucker, Hook it right though the center of the decoy then put it on the ice and step on it. Take that whole mess and drop it right on the bottom of the lake and just wait. Something will come along and grab it. Probably a northern.

This is Heidi again! Thanks for the tips! Well the fishing didnt turn out soo well. Got there a little late and got a crappy spot. It was a very little lake and almost the whole thing was covered in shacks. I finally found a spot off of a point (Laska told me that the points are good spots for noetherns). And there was nothin..not one bite.BUT i still had alot of fun and thats all that matters a i guess. But im looking more forward to going spearing this coming weekend. I have my spot picked out already ( a place me and Laska were going where we ALWAYS see at least a couple northerns). Im pumped!!

    • By only hot bathing them for 10 minutes max it seems to work! I've heard of the above methods but never did them.
    •   I took the blades back off then buffed them clean with a dremel, oiled them, and touched them up with a lazer hand sharpener.  Not sure if a guy can exchange since they aren't flat.   Added some pics so you can see the curve in them. I think they must be a "jet" blade.  
    • Can't wait to see.....  
    • Grape leaves are said to also help.  
    • We would add 1/8 of a teaspoon of Alum to make the pickles stay crisper.
    • We actually put a hitch onto ice castle and pulled 2  wheelers. It worked pretty well. 
    •   If nothing else bring the old ones in closer to ice time so they don't rust up again and have one of the bait store guys send them in to their blade sharpener exchange guys.
    •   How do you keep them crispy? I bought a jar of homemade Hot ones at a farmers market which were good and hot, but limpy?
    • Rain soaked major portions of the state for yet another week, with much concentrated in the southwestern region. This has kept area lakes and rivers high and flowing water moving fast. Several properties in the southwest are still dealing with storm damage. Badger State Trail has some closed sections and areas with standing water. The Sugar River State Trail is usable but needs resurfacing at various locations. Mountain bike trails remain closed at Blue Mound and horse trails and the horse camp at Wildcat Mountain remain closed. All roads have reopened at Wyalusing and Nelson Dewey state parks, but some trails in both parks remain closed.Fishing pressure waxed and waned with the weather this past week. Northern pike, bass and musky continue to be caught on the Flambeau River. Anglers on inland lakes have been reporting success for panfish, bass and walleyes.Anglers were out in force though the weekend on Green Bay many brought out by a walleye tournament. Walleye fishing was relatively consistent, with most boats catching at least a couple fish. The bass bite has slowed along Door County with the best success coming from piers, but perch anglers were having some luck over the past week with most boats harvesting more than 10 fish for half a day's trip. Trout and salmon fishing was beginning to pick up off Marinette on the west shore of the bay but trout and salmon off the Door County side were struggling to find fish. .
    •   That is what I'm wondering.......I found some 8in "jiffy" blades on the bay of e. However it doesn't say anything about them being jet blades and couldn't tell on the pictures if it looked like a slight curve in them..........they were in the package so a decent side view was about impossible. Somebody has to have had one...
