Official Henry's lake trip 2017 thread
« on: Oct 06, 2017, 09:11 PM »
Figured I had better just start this thread and get some info out on here for the shanty folk even though emails have been flying for weeks now. Sorry to overload you guys with the updates. So I talked with Kevin and we are all booked up for December 1-4, as usual ice permitting. The plan right now is to head up early Friday morn,  fish Friday Saturday & Sunday and then head home Monday morn. So let's get to talking! Oh and by the way thanks to photobucket I can't post our favorite pic of prospector holding that monster cut. Lol

Been watching the temps and there have been lows to 28deg in the last few days. Here's a link to the wether station just outside of the state park entrance

I am getting the fever pretty bad lately. Canít wait to see you guys on the ice! How much traveling do you guys plan on doing  on the ice?  Trying to decide if I want to bring my car or take the suburban with the snowmobile. Last year the snowmobile was fun but I didnít use it much fishing in the kiddie pool.Looks like the temperatures are going to be pretty cold in about 10 days up there.

I am game to move around now that my sled is running like a champ. I wish we would get some snow so I can go up and run it for a few miles just to make sure I am good to go on a journey to find them Palm trees  ;D ;D. No but really I would like to run around this year up there.

Funny you say that. Last time I was down your way, I almost did just that. Might still have to give it a shot! Iím not sure how much a guy would learn on Henryís as far as Contour lines go, but it would sure be interesting to find out.

You know Kevin might cut you a deal on renting one of his boats and then all you would have to do is take the ice setup for your helix. Tell him it's recon for our ice trip and for a good cause. Lol. Jk

Thought you guys are hitting first ice up there?  Not sure how useful those sleds will be if you're trying to keep from going through... But I guess they ride sleds across open water so just keep the throttle pegged... Hope you get a great trip this year... Been hearing lower numbers of fish this year, but better size than usual, bring in the 10 lber.... Later J

For the most part every year we've been up there's been plenty of ice for a machine. Seems like the 1st weekend of ice up its a bit sketchy but then by the next weekend its up to 6in or more

I got a couple toy sleds to get running before the trip.  Hopefully the ice grows fast!  See you all in a little over a month.

Are you bringing your dad this year? Look forward to seeing you on the ice for sure. You better post some pictures of your sleds!

Nice sleds you 2. I got my out of the shop and it is running like a champ and I also put a rack on it. I would post some pics of it but I can't do pictures off my phone and don't know why so I will get some pics up when I can.

I also have been messing around with my sled and getting some parts ordered. Yesterday I modified the rear bumper so that it comes out parallel to the top back portion of the tunnel instead of up at an angle matching the angled bottom portion of the tunnel if that makes any sense. The reason for doing that is so my new plano 1819 box will mount up a little bit better on it. I am also still gathering parts to make my auger mount. Also did some maintenance on the sled itself with a new speedometer key, replaced burn out light bulbs, greased everything etc. I still need to change the chaincase oil and figure out why the hand warmers don't work but I should be good to go by the time the Henry's trip rolls around.
