Clear night and temps dipped enough to freeze the lake over last night

Couldn’t resist to chop some of the ice and see how thick it had become

You need at the least 3 inches I have heard to walk on.  I feel much better when there is a full foot of ice on the lake.  I know however, somewhere in the Northwoods there is a crazy icefisherman who has ventured out on the lake to be the first one this weekend

Poe and his ice report.  Like the ground hog, what day does Poe deem the lake safe.  Today he did head out without hesitation

Old dog knows best…. I am still waiting awhile yet before sharpening up the skates and getting the hockey puck out for the boys

One of our long time guests Charles Hebert (married to Amy Tempel) has started an online fishing blog and fishing tackle shop on line

www.selecttacklecompany.com

Charles has some great stuff in his store and has channeled all his fishing ideas into a blog called The Arm Chair Fisherman.  I figured there were quite a few other arm chair fishermen and women out there who would appreciate Charles’ site and blog.  Congrats to Charles on the site

Some days it is hard to not take a good picture.  This was a perfect afternoon.  Mike Rose had the entire lake to himself and rolled one of our row boats in for a final trip out on Lower Kaubashine to find the fish of 10,000 casts.  With the new snow, calm lake and a boat, it was perfect.  Peace and Quiet.  I told Mike he was going to make everyone sitting at their desks jealous of the time and scenery he got to enjoy on Lower Kaubashine, even though he did not get a Muskie.

I heard a rumor about a lite bobber for night time fishing was being experimented with by the Adamtietz crew.  Here are the results of the experiment.  The bottom crappie is quite a fish.  I forgot to ask how big it was
