I'll find a spot somewhere, even if it's right off the launch in a couple feet of water, unless that's junk too.

So....i checked the launch too before the storm. It looked like it caught again and was passable. I did not check it with a chisel but just looked at it from my truck. There was a slight pressure ridge in front of the launch but it would only be a few inches deep water. Going out from the launch and heading to the right, you should be all set....I think. Going Left from the launch was not very good all season but it might be ok now after the couple of weeks of cold however i really don't know so please use caution / chisel.

J, Maybe you can pay CH to give you two lessons on jigging up some lakers ! :)
If people concentrated on the really important things in life there would be a shortage of tip-ups !

Most were caught that day....she's up to 21 for the season so far. All jigged up.

Not sure how that ranks at the Circus, but 21 seems like a heck of as season.  Way to put the house where the fish are, and congrats to her for jigging them up.

Anyone know if there is any fishable ice left on Newfound?

It is certainly fishable... but proceed with caution....  Where I was dropped from 12 down to about 7 as I headed out just north of the launch.

Still good ice, but check as you go... as always.

HI Guys - Attended the outing Saturday for the fourth year in a row.  Great time.  Nice talkin' to Jiggin' and seeing familiar faces, and putting faces to names we hear on the radio.  Keith did a great job on the event as always. FYI, my son Andrew is taking over Hyland33 and I will be Rockbottom.  Time to get the flyrod ready since I wont be there next weekend.  Jiggin keep the videos coming - great job!  Rocky

What a beautiful day to fish today. CH and i both got skunked but did see lakers all day. We made it out to the North End of Mayhew. Took the wheeler out, got set up and then decided to go back and bring out the sled due to deep snow. It was a little slow going out on the wheeler. Sled was much better.
After some thought while the lakers weren't biting, Decided to bring back out the Log Cabin bobhouse. Went home, shoveled off the trailer, pulled it out and loaded up the bob house. Out in 35fow off the boat launch now. Hoping to get some cusk fishing in during the week.
Thanks Psycho, Laker Taker and Beerhog for pulling it out for me from the launch.

I think Laker Taker ended up with 5 lakers, Psycho 1 and Butterfly 1. Beerhog spent part of his morning cleaning the bottom of the lake of tree branches until he finally decided to bump.

Laker Taker and Beerhog both have their houses out too. We're back.....

Great to hear the Circus is back in town for a second showing... weather looks like you'll make it until your scheduled closing date too...

Good luck with the cusk and end of season event.

Thanks for the update.

25 /30" of ice.....that's gotta be at the foot of the lake but doubtful that much. No where else on the lake has that much ice from what i can tell. It would be interesting to know if that was taken with a tape measure or by eye balling?

Cummings beach this time of year or after Jan, tends to die down in terms of producing a lot of fish. Maybe rainbows but Lakers seem to slow down in this area. We migrate to different parts of the lake after Jan or as soon as we can.

Everyone pulled their houses off the lake as Mother Nature pulled a fast one on us. Warming up for a few weeks with rain and then hitting us with 2 weeks of cold and super high winds. Its a pain to bring houses back after bringing them home but some of us ended up bringing them back. Round 2 so to speak.
I know of 3 houses on the lake, possibly more by this weekend. Still have a couple weeks left but the last week weather is looking iffy again.

Yeah, I know but was ignoring it actually.

Personally I think he borrowed CH's tape measure......

Hello, I enjoy reading the many post on your site. It seems to be a great group of folks on Newfound and that is why I have decided to put my house out there next year and enjoy the fun. With that being said I am looking for opinions on what the best underwater camera to buy is (I am looking to get an off season deal). I will hopefully learn a lot more from you all over the off season. Thanks for your reccommendations.

Welcome and thanks for reading the posts. Appreciate it and any comments / updates.

The best camera unfortunately is not in business any longer and can't get them. It was C-Fish which rotated within the camera housing. For $214.00 included shipping you couldn't go wrong I wish i knew they were going out of business cause i would of bought another.

There are so many great cameras out there. Some things to consider are:

How deep do you plan to fish = how long of a cable you should be looking at
Camera Clarity = The deeper you go, the harder it is to see.
Panning or Not = Panning is nice
Monitor size = bigger the better
Color or no color = Color really doesn't matter but its cool.
Lights = Adjustable lights are nice but i really never use them. At night, i put the camera away however that said i haven't seen lights effect cusk at all.
DVR or no DVR = to record onto SD cards.
Budget = no explanation.
Hardside mount = Where can you comfortably mount or place the monitor / camera and also run cable out of the house easily.
Think about some way to mount the cable in the middle of the hole so when it freezes you can easily chop it out without cutting the cable. I made a PVC pipe similar to a tip up to mount my cable inside so i don't chop it in half.

Some cameras to think about are Marcum. They have very good customer service. They have an cable panner which rotates your camera but it basically twists your cable. Another is Aqua View but personally i don't like the fish shaped camera. It doesn't seem to bother the lakers though nor excite them either. Vexlar makes one too.

During the off season you have plenty of time to wade through them all. Best to start now though while the iron is hot for research.

Good luck. Hope this helps.

I just called Newfound Trading Post ( Newfound Sales) near the lake on 3A in Bristol...he has "small shiners" and is expecting more bait on Thursday.
