One of my college friends used to always set his shack up on fairly thin ice.  Heck he still does, lol.  One day he got out to his shack and someone did the same thing, drilled holes RIGHT NEXT to the shack and it started to sink! When the ice is super thick it can support having holes in or near the shack but on six inches of ice the water started shooting up and eventually it weakened the ice.  I understand what you're saying now, I just thought maybe someone used your shack as a wind break, which I've done before.  Hopefully this warmup this weekend and next weekend won't mess the ice up too much. I'd love to see ice fishing well into March!

Fisch...fyi the door is open and guess what people could have used it Im not that kinda guy at all and really wasnt trying to cause a recuss but........the holes drilled around me were very deliberate perfect circle and just far enough apart that a good warm up (in process) would  HAVE BEEN BADD BADD NEWS FOR ME if I would have not gone with my gut and have gotten it off on Sat so fyi people you can fish in my shack hell I even left a radio in there but if I show well Thanks for warming it up  Bluegill

When I was a kid and back when my dad and I had no portable shanties and nearly noone did we used to always drill holes next to a shack to use it as a wind block.  Maybe it was the lake I fished on as a kid, but that was common.  Heck some of the shanties even kept their doors open and let others use their shanty!  This was up north a ways.  If I had a permanent out on one of the lakes it wouldn't bother me to see someone use my shanty as a wind block.

Well to make this a report on fishing which in part it is Today and yesterday where almost a bust. The fish are still around although not nearly as many they seem to be tight lipped with that said ........Today I was out to take my perm off and to my surprise found  Ten inch holes drilled all the way around it!!!!!!! To whomever thinks this stuff is funny I believe you should not be able to call yourself a sportsman and would like to WARN  ALL OTHER PERM OWNERS CHECK YOUR PLACE!!! Theres a clown on the ice.... I could on and on about this but I will not and hope karma smacks the a-hole in the face Stay safe with the warm up Bluegill

Keg was a dead sea today got 5 fish in 4 hrs. Talked to most of the people out in the basin with the same result. I guess the 500 people a day pulling limits finally took its toll

Looking to get on some perch tomorrow early, any suggestions or info would be greatly appreciated. Been doing well on pike and a few decent walleye, but want to jig tomorrow morning. Thanks in advance!

We have had some AMAZING fishing the last couple of weeks out on Kegonsa.  My 13 year old son was able to have one of the better fishing days of the season so far and we had a pretty awesome perch dinner :) I think the bite might be slowing down a little but this video is from about a week ago.
