I wonder if there is a way to express opinions on this board with out character assassination. Don's contributions are very noble and I personally appreciate everything he does.EXCEPT bringing the camera crews. Just my OPINION, you will notice I did not call him names or label him. He is a local business man who has created jobs for the area, and helps people when they forget that 100 cars parked in close proximity to each other on the ice is not a good idea.

Can't find words to express how much I love this sport...fishing that is. Photos from a "not very good angler forthcoming Big Smile

I sure hope none of the losers taking potshots at Don use the Otter St roads in the winter. If you do you're classic hypocrites -- enjoying the many contributions he makes to keeping things safe and running out there and then complaining when he does.

Was down here Monday. Ten feet off of shore a very light spud went to water. Returned yesterday and was surprised to see basically the same thing. Two brave souls were walking around out there,not me. Have noticed through the years that first ice varies alot in this bay - 3" in one spot, 1.5" in the next. Be very careful and use a spud ahead of you. Don't care how shallow the water, if you go through anything can happen. Make sure to tell your wife and kids you love them before you leave the house to go walking around out there. The fish will be there in a week or so.

Took a drive down there to check it out around noon no one fishing but did get out to get a better look at the ice. Looks fishable too me probably 2-4 inches on the inner part of the bay, open water off the lighthouse point still. I'll be there Sat. Wink

I don't think the slight warm up will do anything to the ice. It may help by melting the surface and refreezing it. But it will only be the surface.

What ever you guys think, please don't kill the messenger. Troy will give us valuable info all winter, unless your big mouths tick him off. I know stiener.... I read your apology...LOL!!

Its a good time to be a ice fisherman

I don't think the ice will stick around after this weekend if it does it be miracle, above freezing temps with 40's rain 80% either sunday or Monday.

Despite the wind it seems to have formed some new ice last night, whether it sticks around remains to be seen. Troy, didn't mean to look like I was calling you out, it's hard to put the tone of my words into text, it looked hatsh when I re read my post. it's nice that your out checking conditions and posting what you find not gonna lie I wish I had that drone Smile I've just seen the lake open up so many times it scares me if people are tryin to walk on what they think is 3 day old ice but really is only 1. I know everyone is anxious but it's not even December yet. Loads of ice to come, so much you'll be sick of it!! Stay on top.....

i stand corrected from where i was at, i didnt have any binos and i could not see open water but as the wind started later in the morning, it broke alot up. and out from oshkosh a friend said the lake was open quite a ways....typically once she freezes over completely especially when its as cold as it is, the wind can help thicken the ice in a short order as the wind pulls all the moisture up through the ice making it stronger and thicker. but any little open spot and it will get beat to snot! my bad guys i should have waited to see the whole lake myself....as far as the drone, no on the floating and i half thought about tying a line and pulling some baits with it...it would be fun!

WRONG, the whole lake is NOT frozen and the wind had a HUGE effect on it! Cmon Troy you should know how easy Wind moves ice out there, just two years ago we lost a 8 inch base out there. im still watching huge flocks of ducks out there, as of 2 pm near Merritt was water as far as I could see, haven't looked at asylum but be careful, the wind ALWAYS has effects out there!!

Great video Mr. Bluegill, Thanks for sharing.

2 Questions come to mind ...

Does the drone float? and, IS it legal to troll a lure using a drone?

I am going to try in the next day or 2. For sure by Thursday. The whole lake looked froze over this morning so wind should not have any impact on it anymore.
