'Bout the only current I've noticed when the ice is goin out is wind driven off the Narrows around the points leaving our bay. From what I've seen our bay is earlier than a lot of the lake as there's more current just about everywhere else. That 40' hole isn't much more than 50-60 yds off our dock though.

Made it back from the hunt. My buddy got a 6 pointer and my son got a 9 and a 10. Saw a total of 23 deer for the crew, good year for us. Now getting ready for the ice. Lots of small lakes look like they are almost ready to go up there.

Frequent gusts of 35 mph & occasionally up to 40 at the lake today. :crazy: That won't help the ice much. :doah:

NW wind won't hit Geiger's at all, I'd bet :scratch: the PA down off Oteneagen Rd looks a lot like it does over at The Narrows.

Geigers posted there is 3 to 4 inches everywhere they checked. There is a heave starting to form also. Might have to go up in a week as a few of the smaller walk on lakes will be fine to fish.

Looked to be all locked back up to me. :crazy: Ever try Jessie, glenn. :scratch: I know it's deep & think I heard that there's a spring in there but Chris(Bstore) told me last year(?) that 1 of her boys got a real nice nord out of there spearing.

yea i have but its been years. we got on behind rileys at the access. one time when i was way younger and probably dumber i set up a spear house 50-70 yards from open water. :confused: :confused: :crazy: no more of that.

we had another group of about 6-7 guys hit the lake and set up all over that south end, we got a few but i dont remember anything earth shattering. only vivid memory is i bent a snowmobile ski because some yackoff didnt bust up or pt his spear chunk back in the hole!!!! :angry2:

and that lake kicks my  :moon: open water!!!!!!! :pouty:

Glenn, only fished Big Too Much once and that was for sunnies. Everywhere we went it was non stop but never got one  even close to keeping. I was told there aren't a lot of northerns in there but there are some big ones. Last DNR test netting they only had six in the nets but two over 35". So I guess they were correct on that. I left after deer hunting and the small lakes were all frozen that I checked. We did pretty good on Jessie last summer for walleye but the size was down from other years. Lot of northern in there but not much for size from what I have seen. I have talked to people that said the size is getting better though. Always a bunch of spear houses in front of the access every year. Hopefully I'll get up there next week as those small lakes have to be safe by now I would think. I walked out on one two weeks ago so I'm not worried about that one.

Seen a couple guys out on the ice on the west side of the Narrows a few minutes ago(10-15), went back to see what they up to, they'd moved but were still there. Then the cam updated the shot & all of a sudden they were gone. They couldn't have drilled more than 2 holes.
