Access by government dock was solid no water small pressure crack still there with skim......14 inches of ice with some stress marks in it....saw three ATV's out there.....I personally would not take a machine out there especially for those accesses where the walk out is not too distant......each to his own at this time of year......that was my last day....I fished with another board member....Icey....great guy to fish with and he managed to ice a nice Whitie in the early afternoon.......conditions today were brutal without my hut.......good thing I was in my floater suit......wind was howling most of the day.....snowing sideways in near whiteout conditions at times......still had a fun day and made a new friend that I hope to fish with again in the future.......Thanks Ray for a nice day and having my back.......oh yes when we set out pulling plastic tub down SR30 i feel something and hear something fall off the tub......turned around and seen my auger power head on the ground and I had lost the pin....nowhere to be found with the help of Ray and another chap that is on the board and happened by.....thank you for stopping and helping me look......we went out anyway and took the pin out of my jawjacker and secured it in there and it worked well for the day......lol.....a couple of the guys dropped by every once in a while to see how I was making out and they were still there when I left at 330 pm with Ray.....so I gave them my minnows.......hope they had some luck with them. Almost forgot....approx 2 inches of snow on ice with small drifts in spots.

Hey longfish, it’s one of the “twins”...lol..... we ended up staying a few more hours with no success, but it was still a fun day on the ice battling the wind and snow. Thanks for your company and the knowledge. Hope you have a great trip.

No problem! Better it fell out on the road and not when drilling a hole

Actually KevB81 I think I will do this modification......I have tons of these pins and will still be able to take it apart easily.....with loctite it would be a pita to take apart....especially if you are on the ice.

Not a great idea, that pin can fly out.

I use the blue loctite can get it apart the red stuff is more permanent. Personal preference if want to add the clip or not.

Yesterday was one of the best days of the season for me trying to catch a whitefish. It was best in two ways, first i met a great guy (Arnie a.k.a longfish) and then i finally caught my first and only whitefish of the season. This was my 4th time trying, and my previous trip was only two days ago. That day i tried almost every hole (my own and holes drilled by others) and every depth to no avail. This time we went out with Arnie and we started at 60' of water just a few meters apart from each other. To my surprise my fish finder (Hummingbird Helix 5) was displaying a lot of noise, so much so I can't even distinguish my lure among them. Thinking we may be too close to each other's sonar (he also have an awesome Helix 10 with a huge screen) I moved further away. No matter what i tried noises didn't go away, so I told Arnie that I am setting up tent and will stay tight on this spot instead of running and gunning since my fish finder is useless. So I did, and finally at around 10:00am i sat down on my chair and started to jig.

Soon after, my fish finder magically started to work normally, I've got out of my tent to tell Arnie that it was all OK now, I've seen him packed up and moving to another spot. Turns out his Helix have a sidefinder feature which affected my Helix 5 from many meters away. Another lesson learned, from now on I will be as far away from others as possible on or off ice... lol

Anyway, thinking that running and gunning didn't pay off two days earlier, i decided to sit tight anyway, as the wind was howling outside and it also started to snow. I said I'll enjoy the comfort of the tent this time. After a few hours of trying I was ready to give-up but then I decided to try something different. So I've put a big Rapala Jigging Rap on my other rod and went down 60 feet to create some havoc at the bottom. My primary rod had a BlueFox Lil'Foxie (meegs type lure) in silverish white (couldn't find the popular goby color) tipped with a salted minnow. Soon after I created some dust at the bottom, I've got that magical hit. As I was trying to get the fish up, he moved sideways and tangled to my other line, took me a while to get him up to the hole but it was solidly hooked so i managed to land it despite the tangle.

This trip concludes my ice fishing season and I am now getting my boat ready, and i am happy to make the acquaintance of a great fishing friend.

And now a little fish porn
