3.22.23

Was able to get out in the afternoon yesterday with the wife. Went off of Wellington Beach (not the boat launch).

There was about 5-6" of ok honeycomb ice with 4" of crap on top with a 2" gap between. Unfortunately when we got out, the top layer was already getting soft and we were starting to collapse the top 2" of crap ice by the time we were ready to leave.

Shore line is good as of yesterday, not sure about after this rain though.

Still hoping to be not done yet......

I've had enough "misadventures" on late season ice over the years, I think stay off the ice until next season. :(

Taking the house off the lake, bringing it home sweet home.

Special thanks to the Newfound Circus crew working together as we always do. We got everyone off the lake, loaded onto trailers and all home safe and sound.

Given the way the weather seemed this year, getting the house off dry with just a week to go in the season seems like a win...
Nice to see the Circus crew still pulling together...

Thanks for the Newfound Chronicles thread and all the videos... will be looking forward to some early ice vids next season.

I have to agree... As weird as the season started, the second half of the season was better fishing and the ice is going the distance! All good and I too really enjoy the videos... pert near professional :o) in my estimate!

3.25.23 Saturday

Fished Cummings beach probably for the last time through the ice not because a lack of ice.
Temps remained below freezing with the wind chill so no ice lost.
Out on the lake, the snow melted then froze during the week making 11 - 12" of ice. Drove the argo out and set up a portable for the first time this season, fished with the wife.

Had a plane circle us a few times as well as an eagle eye balling our sucker carcass. Good entertainment giving us a show. Tippin yanked up a laker and Lush's son, RippinLipps got a nice small mouth bass.

No Lakers for us but nice to spend the last day with the wife on Newfound.

Started snowing around 3 pm.

Today (Sunday) We took the day off and celebrated the season by going to Bay Haven Lobster Pound for lunch. Love that place with plenty of leftovers.

Great report and thanks again for all the work you've done on those videos.  Very cool to watch!

Way to make a full season out of it  Jiggin - hopefully next season you'll get the Log Cabin to its usual haunts....

Videos have been great as always - and the shanty is a better site with a Newfound thread to read.

See you next season hopefully,

Dennis
