I took the portable out today for about two hours. drilled some holes and checked the equipment.
I'm considered by friends a bit stupid for getting out on early ice but to have a four wheeler out there is a bit to much for my nerves especially so far south. Of course, I think typo is all of about 4 ft deep so it's probably not as big a risk as being on a real lake.
Yes Typo is shallow. I've had some really good luck fishing for eyes in the shallows on a few inches of ice. I have also seen a few big ones cruise through the spear hole on early ice. Get those tip-ups out, I think its here!!
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
