I am jealous guys. I got tired of waiting for ice and took the boat out yesterday and caught 15 walleyes. It was a little chilly, but no -4. I can't even get my dam fridge to make ice. I think my gas auger might get the winter off. Hey Moe, hot any xtra rooms for rent? I might have to come live with you for the winter... ;)

I was kind of partial to your Lucky Brews while I was there. I could fill my sled up and we might have enuf for the winter... ;D

Been thinking about coming up to Lee's cabin in January to get some Lakers through the ice. I wasn't thinking too seriously, but if this keeps up I am going for sure....I can't remember if I talked to Lee about driving on the ice at Whitefish Bay or not. I do remember him saying he used snowmobiles, but I can't recall if he drove or not. Any thoughts?

Fozsey...pretty sure they drive on Whitefish bay....if i am not mistaken, there might be a winter road there.....there's a spot on LOTW they call the triangle......dangerou s place anytime in the winter....but lakers for sure would be awesome....and not very far from a few good other spots for them as well...let me know if you decide to do it....i know Dirtball would jump in.... :tipup: :tipup:...Grump
