No Ice to "Thin" on Dailey Lake

2 posts in this topic

Well a friend & I headed out Sat for a two hour drive from Billings with the intentions of catching some Eyes on Dailey Lake in the Paradise Valley south of Livingston,MT. Well to our supprise as we rounded the corner to view the lake there was minimal ice at best. With two fisherman headed off the lake with no fish to speak of during thier outing. So we scouted aroung the lake to try and see if we could get access from a shorter distance than the others had dragged too. Nothing but open water around the edges. So we went back to try and blaze a trail through a snow covered road so our drag wouldn't be so far, but to no avail we high sided the F350 with a 6" lift and 35" tires. To find ourselves spending the evening digging the truck out with just 2 Ice Scoops & a 5 gal bucket before the sun would set, but as luck would have it we had plenty of beer for the "BIG DIG". Next time I think we are headed down there with the boat?

Thought I would share a few photo's from our adventure and show the FM boys the sights we get to experience here in MT while out Ice Fishing. The photos are shot looking west to the Gallatin Range & East looking at the Beartooth Mtns with the Dailey Lake in the middle. The beauty out here never stops at being amazing.

Do have a report for Lake Petrolia up near Winnnett,MT the eyes are biting after dark & through most of the night with Ice at about 8-12" but leaving the shoreline so be careful getting on. We used the wheeler ramps to get on the ice last week.

    • Peppers are back in the cold smoke. Breaking out the gas smoker later for jerky, not having a dehydrator think I'll put the peppers in the smoker and dry them out that way at around 130 or 140 degrees after the jerky is done. Not sure if it'll work but WTH. 
    • As the Chronicle reports, Pelosi spoke out Tuesday, essentially begging people to stop talking about third-party candidates and messing up the polling, saying that a narrow victory in the general election "would deprive Hillary Clinton of a big mandate that I think she should have going into the White House and that would be helpful as to how we go forward."   This is just how Del, D2E, Hillary, Donald, and Nancy Pelosi feel about 3rd party candidates.  Nothing personal.  
    • Perhaps you are associating peanut butter with sweet things, like cookies or peanut butter cups.   But peanuts aren't sweet and can work in savory things as well.   Asian food seems to do that with peanuts a lot, just as an example.   African food also. 
    • Man, I can see cream cheese but peanut butter? I may have to give it a go sometime, maybe the bacon will off set the oddness?  
    • Sorry I missed that. The brown and blue wires are the Transmit TX and Receive Rx wires for connection via single cable to NMEA 0183 compatible devices. nmea 0183 is the protocol for compatible devices, computer, plotters, auto piolet, Radar, radio, etc. All of these devices including your GPS can be connected to a single cable. The brown and blue wires allows the sonar to communicate to other devices. Google nmea 0183 compatible devices for a raft of information on what this is. My brother, a charter Capitan out of Cortez FL. uses these devices on his boat for off shore fishing up to 100 miles off shore. Nice to have to talk to other Capitan's ship to shore, radar, GPS and  to get back home without running into sunken islands.  
    • Trump stumped on terrorist quiz as he can't identify the leaders of ISIS and al-Qaeda – but Carly Fiorina shows she knows her Nasrallah from her al-Julani Radio host Hugh Hewitt asked Trump and Fiorina the same questions about terrorist leaders in separate taped interviews on Thursday FIorina answered confidently and Trump seemed flummoxed, confusing 'Quds Forces' with 'Kurds forces'

    • I ask the same thing about the other 2 candidates, especially the one that is your favorite.   What do you care? I thought he was irrelevant anyway?  
    • Oh yeah.  I keep forgetting about all that modern computer stuff in cars.   So the computer would notice the tranny didn't shift all the way down as the car stopped?     There goes that theory.    And why only after a couple hours of driving?   Some sort of overheating of the transmission fluid?  cooler plugged in the flush process?    Here is a question for Carpmaster..... Is it different in the summer vrs winter?   Like you only have to drive 50 miles in summer and 200 in winter?   You guys that actually know can feel free to ignore my suggestions if you don't want to waste time answering.
