Don't know about you, but I'll be driving my vehicle on. The mechanic said I need a new transmission, steering column, brakes, suspension and probably a new motor. So I'll just drive it from CIL north till I can find a spot to fish. See you all on the ice.











Note: This was a joke! I think it's way too early to get out on the Red (remember there is current under the ice) but to each their own.

Got up to Hecla around noon today. LOTS of frazzle ice on the W side of the causeway but not on E side. Light layer of snow on the ice. Lake wide open even at the shore by Hecla Village. N Shore cottages area - snow on ice to maybe 400 yds out and looks like an open lead out from that. By Little Punk Island looks like open water going S of the island in my bino's . Bottom line - a few days yet before I creep out with a spud bar ! Have not been up to Marina - maybe tomorrow to have a look- see but expect its wide open.

Fishing a pond or possibly small backwater lake may be a viable option. A river with current is totally reckless. I remember 1 winter was on the red fishing north tip of sugar island. Ice had been frozen about 5 wks. ice thickness was 10-12”. 2 steps away ice was 2”. We were right on a current break. Laid the auger down and we all belly slid back towards the holes where the thicker ice was.

I never feel bad for people that choose to be reckless. Selfish. They clearly do not give a shit about anyone but themselves. Don’t care about their wife or partner. Their kids or grandkids It’s the victims of such stupidity I weep for.
Oh relax FFS. Enough with the shaming and venomous virtue signaling. You don't know these people or their circumstances so stop chastising fellow anglers.
