Awee report with pics

Recommended Posts

I have to start off by saying,if you think just because theres guys out there on the ice,and think that it,s safe,think again.People were walking all over the place,many not even spudding where they were walking. Terry seen a guy go through this morning :w00t::o .Lucky for him,his buddies were close by.NO FLOATER. Skidoos were flying around and a couple of ATV,s.I knew it was going to be like that today. Just plane crazy. Im thinking twice about heading out Sunday.Where the sleds went,you could see wet tracks.Thier cracking the ice.

 

Ok so for a wee report.

 

Met up with Terry,Cudz and Jaydub.Nice meeting you Jay.Nice pop up Cudz.

The other two guys were also getting them.I caught a few aswell,also knocked off a 1.5 pounder at the hole. :wallbash:

 

Started to get a chill going,so had to get the flip closed and heater running.Gets nice and toasty in there fast.

Fish that Terry and I caught were on williams and fat rap clown.

Good to hear Brian. Not good about the sleds and atv's though. I am heading there in the morning with a buddy. Will have the blue clam guide out there. If your going let me know.

 

BTW how thick was the ice about?

it was great getting out with you, Cudz and Jaydub

 

but I have to say

 

People are stupid

I can not believe all those people walking out in ever direction without spuding

 

the atvs and the snowmobiles running around with no idea how much ice was under them

I saw one guy come from the other side of the lake and thought to myself, I am surprised he made it in one piece he stopped when he got closer to us and I saw that the guy had 2 young kids the the machine with him........moron

 

the skidoos and the atvs and the large number of people out on the ice was weighing the ice down and water was coming out the hole. they are creating a slushy mess on top that can make the ice even more unsafe

Where that guy went in,was just north of were Chuck went in.Also if you look closely,you can see many paths made.Just one bad spot on the ice is all it took.

 

 

Terry I need a bigger fish to replace that one.DINKS. :whistling:

Good stuff. Nice meeting you Terry.

We stayed out for about 45 to an hour later. I was not a fan of the water coming into my shelter everytime an atv went by. That guy was not too far from us who fell in. Still a bit shady if you ask me but we were more careful than most (except for that time all four of us were standing in a 6' diameter circle by my hut which had 3 - 8" hole bored into the wafer thin ice :unsure: )

We didn't exactly crush it out there but most perch (70' of water) were keeper size. Jaydub and I managed to take enough perch home for a nice feed. I actually just finished eating them and they were great.

Surprised none of us even hooked into one whitie.

This was my first trip out on the ice this year and I was trying out some new thing. My shelter worked really well and is a really slick unit to put up and take down. My new auger worked really well getting through the soft thin ice in about about 7 seconds, and my heater was about perfect size for the shelter.

 

Good start to the year. Look forward to fishing with you kids again.

Looks like fun.... about one more week for me, and I will be out there.

 

I went in for a "swim" a couple years ago off the pier at Port Dalhousie in FEBRUARY.... That was enough "cold shower" to cool my jets when it comes to winter fishing.

 

But then again, i just might go out tomorrow... after all, I just got back from my storage shed and got my rods and auger and white bucket :whistling:

Well done guys. The ice has to tighten up a bit more for me to feel comfortable. I can not wait until it does.

Great to see you getting out Brian! :good: Do you find that heater is enough for you? Certainly nice to warm up some noodles. Nice to see that you all made it out and got back safely. Thanks for the report.

It,s plenty for heat.I had it on high for awhile to get rid of the ice chunks that formed on it from being in the back of the truck during that newyears rain. :wallbash: On low it,s plenty.

 

No noodles,just chicken wings in tin foil,maybe even a fried balogna sandwich.LOL

 

Terry you know what,,,,,,,,thats the one I lost today. :whistling:

That style hut is awesome to set up..taking down is easy aswell the only issue I have is once the roof and sides are popped back in it takes me 5 to 10 minutes to get it to fold up without binding.. Is there a trick to this that I am missing?
