Thanks everyone. I'll use all the advice I can get. Rockfish9 I always put the shiners close to the bottom... I'll try the just under the ice for one, good tip.
Paul, Roy already cleaned up the pond right by my house, that's the one he made the shark sculpture on. Everyday that week going to work I saw the FL plates and sent him some hate texts ha. But will do, if I can park anywhere that is.
Tony... F you... jk thanks for the call too, good luck today. I'm definitely going to check out the Nils, don't know how much ice time we're going to have left this season, but its march 8th and there's still a foot down here! Decisions decisions...

something clever and related to fishing

J. park at my cottage if you can get in driveway and walk the short distance to the end of the road and take a short left. Feel free to shovel if you need to.

I have an 8" Eskimo/hand that came with a bunch of ice gear I picked up a while back your welcome to use. First time I used it was about 6 weeks ago up north, 8" black ice and I'm still out of breath! LOL

slush city this week

this last week has had the best icefishing of the season. in my VERY LIMITED experience, I would say the fish are certainly mopre active with the improved temperatures. maybe a few more days before the ice is too sketchy to traverse

finished my season last weekend.. there's still ice but winter wreaked havoc on my property ... too much to do so I am calling it quits... it's hard leaving 30" of good ice but it was a good season...hard but good ..I've got enough white perch in the freezer to last until flounder fishing kicks in...

A good run is better than a bad stand!

Fished most weekends and had fun taking first timers out on Buckmaster in Westwood.

Also picked up a pair of snow shoes that made getting to the ice a blast!

Now it's change-over time from ice to spring fishing!

I am a legend in my own mind!

All done, i made it out on the ice no problem this past weekend off the neighbors dock, it sure looked safe enough to get back to shore, but that wasnt the case. Up to just about the jewels, Muck boots are mighty hard to get off once filled with water.

Everything is better on the rocks.
