well, drilled about 6.5 inches by vanderbergs. middle of the lake about 3.5 to 4. took the sled out to sand island to try out new tow bar for calm flip-over. Just be safe out there. caught 2 eyes, not much size. only stayed for about an hour.

i guess its time!!!!!

Be careful on the gsl , it's already claimed it's first life of the season. Keep an eye out for ice heaves and rocks if your on a sled or atv .

I'm not 100% sure on the details . I guess a kid took his new sled out for the first time on Friday nailed a rock fast enough to get ejected 75 feet, i think they took him to the hospital and pronounced him dead .i think it was near lanzis. I grew up near the lake and I also have a boat I keep on the lake . And it's very tricky once they lower the lake . You can think your on the ice but you might just be on a flat that could have huge rocks sticking out . With the snow blending everything together you don't see it until it's too late . All you can do is play it safe . It's a big lake. A few people died this summer on the lake. Best thing to do is try to not to go out by yourself in open water or hard water .if sh#t hits the fan when your by yourself it can be miles to walk or swim before you can get to a safe place or help .
