Newfound Chronicles
« on: Jan 16, 2023, 07:18 PM »
1/16/23

Finally was able to get onto the ice! Fished off of Cummings beach ~ 4" of snow ice max, not consistant. Cold and windy, didn't lose any ice today. Easily cut holes with a chisel, no auger required.

Scoob joined me and reminded me what they look like (lakers), he caught the first laker and then lost a second at the hole.
I was able to yank one up after he left, made a mess of my line between the angry laker flopping around on my line and the wind, wasn't able to get down fast enough before the other 2 left. No camera, just used the Lowrance. Kept weight down and only brought out what I needed to fish ie: chisel, skimmer, lowrance, jig stick and cut bait.

Fished till 1:30pm, felt good to be back on the lake. Time to get the bob house ready.

Have a wonderful season Jiggin! Take care and stay safe
when chuck norris played golf for money, chuck marked down a hole in zero every time, the golf pro said, "chuck: you can't score zero on a hole." Chuck norris turned towards the man and said, "I'm chuck norris, the man proceeded to pour gas over his body and set himself on fire because that would be less painful than getting roundhouse kicked by chuck norris....chuck norris roundhouse kicked him in the face anyways

Nice job getting on the ice at Newfound, catching some fish, + not getting wet!

The wind was blowing hard N all weekend at the small ponds I was fishing....I bet the wind on Newfound felt fierce!   ;D

I got out on the Hebron end on Saturday and Sunday. Those were two of the coldest/windiest days I've had in a very long time out there. Luckily I had my portable so I could hide and warm up. I couldn't get to my favorite laker spots, but had some hot action jigging and marked a ton of fish both days. On Saturday I caught a nice pickerel and five perch. Then Sunday caught at least a dozen perch. Got to see a bald eagle fly over a few times too which never gets old. The perch were on the small side, but fish are fish.
Marking anything?

Thanks everyone for your comments! Appreciate them and the warm welcome back. :)

1.17.23

Today was warm so didn't make any ice today. The ice looked soft of top, not good.

I didn't bother to go out and check ice conditions however I did manage to load up the bob house and bring it up to the lake today. We (me) are way late in this process this season.

Dropped it off next to Cummings beach (on a private beach), jacked up and ready to be pushed out onto the lake once we get enough ice.
Thanks Dragon for stopping by and helping me out. Even though you say you didn't do anything, at the very least it was nice to catch up and chat.

No pics, sad actually seeing a bobhouse sitting on a beach waiting for ice.....this late in the season.

Come on Jack Frost!!!! YOU GOT THIS!

1.20.23

Fished Cummings beach today. Snowed, got around 8", no wind and 32F. Very pretty day.
Lost ice from the last time I was out. Around 3" of ice now. Very easy chiseling. As soon as you cut a hole, it got slushy. Hoping the wetness will freeze in a day or so, then we'll have more ice to fish on. Only brought out what I needed to fish with. Chisel, jig stick and fish finder.

Tippin yanked one up today ~ 20" laker. His 1st for the season. I lost one twice (I was on the phone with Newfound Lake Life, local newspaper). Ended up throwing the phone on the ice then telling them I'll call them back later but by then lakers were gone.

Left the lake around 3:30 pm.

Back at it in the morning.

Pic Tippin took.

Nice videos. I don't know how long they keep videos up for, but I don't think it's forever. The site is nice for uploading something quick that you want to share.

That's a sad one... fishing in the slush looking at the shack on shore. Hoping you get it out where it belongs soon.

Kept myself entertained while watching my tipups today.
Tried to stay off the ice as much as possible only going out to clean the snow and slush outta my holes from time to time.

1.22.23

Cold with a slight breeze today. Flew the drone around Mayhew Island to get a read on ice conditions prior to the snow storm.

Wasn't good......

At around 17 seconds you can see the bald eagle from a distance.

I did manage to dub one on the tipup today.
