Nice fish fellas! Yeah that truck punched through between the 2 boat launches in coteau. Hit a gas well. From what I heard he basically only had a wrecked rim in the end but that’s about it. Lucky guy

I was in that area all day Saturday and missed it.

I was a little concerned with the large cracks near the north boat launch and the sound of running water in it. Likely the melt water from the parking area and bank but I wonder how much it is eroding under the ice.

Anybody been on the ice at all this week, any chance we can get out for another weekend? Last weekend was pretty good, little bit of water on the ice but I'm getting a little worried about the 5 days of warm weather.

I made my buddy promise me he would kick my ass if I proposed another drive onto the ice at Dief after we fished it last Saturday. He proposed shooting my new tires out instead. It was good ice then, but the ice we drilled through on Blackstrap yesterday (which is substantially thicker than Dief) was already pretty soft and wet. After today it will only be less safe.

That's my two cents worth, but I have sadly bid farewell to a very productive walleye spot for the season.

The ice was wet about half way down on Saturday March 20. It was easier to drill through than a week a go. I was in Coteau Bay, and caught 2 perch. That's it.

Just another awesome day for my last trip to the big lake for the hard water season. Slow for the most part picked up some walleyes late morning from 9 to 1030 then nothing for the rest of day. Marking but no takers. Did get this PB white around the 2 pm hour what a beast to handle. Took me on a few runs. She released fine. Had myself a great season at deifenbaker this year.

Fished the last day from late afternoon till dark. Ice was holding better than recent years. Met two like-minded fisherman after dark :).
