Well boys and girls thats it for me. Tony and myself hit it this morning and all went well till the end. There is still 15 to 20 inches out there and plenty of fish but the shoreline is very unpredictible. I went through today around noonish once things warmed up. You can also here the water going throught the ice. When you are drilling holes you get the chipped ice coming up. Its time for me to hang it up for the season and start thinking Sturgeon! Good luck be carefull!
The good thing about that was you were close to shore and it wasn't 10 below.I walked into an unmarked spear hole on millelacs about 10 years ago in the narrows where vineland bay and the main lake come together.It was probably O degrees or colder don't really remember.If you're familiar with ml you know that's a pretty good hike.I went in up to my armpits.By the time I got back to the vehicle I couldn't even bend my my legs to get the bibs,pants and longjohns off.Then when I finally got all my clothes off there I sat in the truck in my wet undies.That was an experience I'll never forget,wow what a rude awakening.I wish it would have been another spearer that found that hole,then he could let all his buddies know how important it is to mark their holes.Needless to say I'm not real fond of spearers.It's too bad one bad apple gave me that attitude.I'm glad every thing turned out O.K with you Sand Burr.

If you've got short, stubby fingers and wear reading glasses, any relaxation you would normally derive from fly fishing is completely eliminated when you try to tie on a fly. ~ Jack Ohman, Fear of Fly Fishing, 1988
