Ice: 2"

About 2” of mushy ice. Saw what looked to be recent holes, but I didn’t risk fishing on that thin of ice.

August 4 -- canoe fishing for largemouth.  Warm day, calm water, but nothing biting.  Near the end, I tied into one of this lakes well known about Muskies!  Of course, my hands are full with paddle, cramped quarters, no net, "under powered" rod, reel, line, etc.  He put up a good fight and I realized the only way call this one a catch, was to get him to shore.  I was about ten feet away from shore when he flipped and snapped my line.  This is one of those cases where I was sad to not catch him, but sort of glad due to my "fragile" condition in my small boat.  My first ever Musky fight!  From the few glances when I had him next to the canoe, I'd estimate he was around 32-35 inches. No time for photos....the one that got away!
