Hey Jiggin is there any ice at all north of Mayhew Island? I have a few spots in mind that are north of Mayhew but I'm willing to bet that they are wide open.

I flew the drone over that area last weekend and there was tissue ice there.  Very thin at best as far as I could tell. Maybe in a week or so it might be safe if we get some serious cold. After yesterday and today's weather it might have disappear.

Back out again today. Hooked onto the bob house and followed Navionics to 45 fow. Fished there for half the day then bumped over to the 60 foot hole. Unfortunately the underwater camera i brought wouldn't reach that deep but according to the fish finder there were constant arches in deeper water than shallow so it seemed.

Nice day, temps reached 40f but cloudy with slight breeze. Saved propane today.

Was going to beach the house at the end of the day but with the cold weather coming tonight i bumped it over to high ice, jacked it up and tied it down.

Sausage for breakfast and Ribeye on the grill for dinner. Only caught 1 laker today but that ties me up with CH for the season ;D

Well, that's what really counts, isn't Jiggin?  ;)

I'd say you're a little spoiled with that Argo but you deserve it!
Enjoy.  :)

You guys are awesome and I love the comradery and the "pay it forward" morals that you guys follow. That is huge. I always fish with a group of people up behind Mayhew and have met a couple of you. I am hoping to do more fishing this year than usual so I will start to carry a radio and give you a shout when I do. Good luck this year and rip those lips!

Far away but what kind of luck do you have with cusk? Going in February, staying with friends in a house next to the bakery (basic ingredients I think) if you know where that is and we just have a pop up shanty and our feet to shelter and move from that area when we go to target lakers, cusk, trout and maybe smallies? Heard the rainbow fishing is good in that rock/sandy bottom cove just off the bakery. Anywhere within easy walkin distance of around there good for lakers or cusk? Thanks for your tips/predictions as it is far away!

Congrats !!

Loon Island at the north end of the lake. This was on the Newfound Lake Association facebook page. Nice video Jiggin, let the games begin.

Thanks for the pic! Can't tell how the ice is there, trying to find someone who can get a report on that. No worries if not, but would be great. Haven't fished my spot in 2 years because of last year's weather not locking up this part well.

Coming up to hit the ice this weekend. Not sure if we're going to hit Newfound or not though. Never seem to have any luck by the beach and as far as I know the boat ramp is still open water.

Still open water, but I will keep you posted Denny.

J, You need to go to Hollywood and direct the next Academy award winner! Great video.
If people concentrated on the really important things in life there would be a shortage of tip-ups !

Very cool video. Thanks for sharing, and thanks for the thread. I have really started to look forward to reading about all happenings at the "circus".
