Good afternoon fellow hard water enthusiasts.

Group of us heading up to the Nip this weekend and next, unfortunately our outfitter, like many others, have been pushed back on hauling out the Bungalows.

We are more than equipped for over night camping so we are still heading up this weekend with the pop ups but was just wondering if anyone up there has witnessed any ATV's or Snowmobiles out at Deep Water Bay, Callander Bay or any other area's yet?

Tight lines

That's a solid Heck no not yet sir, people are walking with poles poking the ice to be safe from what I've seen.

I have only seen a handful of walkers on South Bay. No machines as of yet.

I took some pics just now (North Bay looking out over the lake), it might help.

+3 slushy shore and I didn't see any huts, tracks or machines anywhere.

I meet a lot of locals in this spot last year and not one of them is out yet.

Iíve been out a couple times now on South Shore between Deep Water Point and mouth of Callander bay. No sleds or ATVís I just walked out. No permanent shacks out yet (including my own), just some pop ups. Weather has been so mild though Iíve just been fishing outside. Some water and slush close to shore but dry further out. Measured mostly 5-6 inches of decent ice.
Good luck !

We had a bit of snow overnight and more coming tonight. Itís still rather mild so it will make it a bit harder to pull a toboggan. Supposed to get colder in the next few days though. I will be going out later today and tomorrow and can give a further update.

Fished Callander bay opening day and only saw 1 snow machine out all day. He went all the way out to the islands. Pretty sketchy.

Everyone else walked out. Probably a few dozen people on the ice at least. Lots of pop ups.

The ice varied from 4" to 6".

Fishing was great tho, 830am to noon. Stopped counting after 15 fish. 2 fish over slot (18.5 & 19") and managed 1 keeper at 16.5". Lots of fish in the 14-15" range. Live minnow on jighead was the winner.

A good snow fall over night with some freezing rain mixed in. Over cast but it's not very cold today, around 0.

I could see one person out there and I think I could see a hut out over towards Jacko point too.
