Spirit Thin Ice Warning

4 posts in this topic

20' of water East of Templar theres a spot with less than 6" of ice. Found it today when drilling a set of holes, first 3 were 25" 4th one hit the throttle and boom I'm through. A spring or something is creating air bubble from the bottom of the lake and causing this. I have GPS Coordinates if anyones thinking of fishing that area.

Yikes...was on Spirit all day, but not in that area. How big of an area you talking about? Thanks for the heads up.

Big enough to make you fill your pants when a tire goes in. Not sure exactly how big but was surprised when I hit the throttle and instantly went through. I know my Nils loves eating ice but its not that fast LOL. 25" in the other 5 holes I drilled in the shack, glad the weak spot was on the wifes side, shes smaller than me. Was cool watching the bubbles come up all day.

    • Dishwasher for me if I don't get to them right away like thirdeye.
    • I sprayed mine almost a month ago.  An ortho product that seamed to work.  All that's left is the dead grass it choked out.
    • Now that rubechat forums are history....   Lets light this place up...Rubes!
    • We spent the past week in Door County Wisconsin on vacation with 4 other couples and our campers. I had it all lined up for 6 members of our group to go out on a chartered fishing trip in the early morning of Thursday. The charter called me at 8:00 Wed. evening to inform me that the boat had broken down and wouldn't be fixed until later that day and there were no available re-scheduling opportunities until Monday.    GGGRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.
