Finally drilled a few holes.
« on: Jan 23, 2016, 06:53 PM »
Got out and packed down the trail into my cabin and then jigged for troots for a few hours. Missed one in the first 10 minutes and then landed a wee 3 pounder on an 8" white tube jig about 5 minutes later. The rest of the day I had a bunch of lookers but no biters.
Should have taken a pic of that first one.  ;D
Off to go get me some poikes in the AM.

This thread is worthless without pics ;) we need cabin pics.
I was born an Alaskan I just didn't live here at the time.

Looks good it's nice to see a little snow.  Have you stayed in the cabin yet

Not yet.
No heat and open eves. Would be pretty chilly.  ;)
Will stay in it during the summer and hope to get heat next winter.
Gotta pay for windows and roof first.

Thanks for the winter cabin pics, Drifter. That is a great project you have going there. Doesn't look like a lot of snow, how thick is your ice this year? Down here in the lower 48 the El Nino has made for a thinner than usual ice pack and shorter fishing season.  :tipup:

Well with just 4' feet of ice ( ;D) you can get on the fish faster, I guess that is the positive spin for ya  :icefish: :icefish:
