Had a great time doing derby this weekend..was able to keep a Laker on board all weekend,but got bumped off Sunday afternoon..
Highlights:
-new spot never fished before producing.
-weather cooperated somewhat.
-cusklines did well Sunday
-getting turned around on lake during snow storm checking cusklines..snow blind..thank god for navionics!
-newfound circus chatter
-staying out sat. Night (didnít sleep much).
-the excitement of being on board.
-gathering at capt. Black sat night...always good to see that group.

Great time !

Slow weekend for us over in the Hebron area. Tons of marks on the flasher but couldn't seal the deal. Someone from our group caught the winning cusk. We also had a 3.68 pickerel caught by someone else but that got bumped off the board.

Another great derby though, lots of laughs, food and drinks. Felt nice to get a normal night's sleep last night.
If fishing was called catching, everyone would do it.

2/26/2018

Went out to check on the house today. The lake is nice for traveling. Not much snow and slush. I expected worse.

Beautiful day out. Some wind but very warm and sunny. Great day to bounce around the lake hitting spots but I didnít, just went out to bring home my cusk lines and see how everything was doing.

Saw a house being pulled off the lake. Glad they were using an Atv and not a truck as the boat launch going out.

Still a ton of ice on the lake and March fishing is upon us soon. Days like today would be awesome towards the end of March.

Looks like gonna have to build a bridge to get across and protect the boat launch.

Beautiful day out there and conditions perfect for wheeler travel or walking! Gave it a days rest and went out today. Skunkapalooza! 😀
Going to bump the house early tomorrow over towards the western shore of whittemore point as I have my brother coming out Friday and hope to let him see some lakers on the camera at least even If we canít catch any...😖
Warm day and breezy. No holes or water on th surface. Wellington ramp looked the same. Had a nice gent come out and ask if we could help him pull his house off the lake and we took a few minutes at lunch time and got his house back to the parking lot with no trouble! Argos rule! 😀

Hey everyone!

Looks like I need to go out and repeat my experiment again this weekend. We'll be up there on Saturday, so feel free to come say hi to us, we will be in the big orange tent
...and of course any help getting the gear transported out to the cite and back is very much appreciated.

Cheers!

Decided to strategically bump house about 3 miles tonight....to get closer to the exit point at end of season. Got some crazy weather coming, tied her down good, made sure blocks were the largest I had so house wouldnít blow of them with these high winds coming up...perfect night to do it, top inch was slush, and no wind. Met up with phyloPhil,jiggin, and lakertaker at my house after everyone was all set, and discussed strategy for end of season.....as always great times and laughs with buds.....good luck to all with houses out there !!

Please keep us posted on the end of season strategy! We bumped our house this morning and plan to fish tomorrow afternoon and Friday if the weather is not too wild. Probably will be pulling the house off next week or
sooner??

Checked the house, its all set but i did have one tie down hole opening up just a tad. Filled it with slush and put some more on my holes under the house just in case.

I see you bounced over to Whittemore side Mowbizz. If you go slightly north from where your at, you will see my yellow tie downs from where i left them and bounced to where i am now. I plan to bounce back on Sunday and hook back up to my tie downs so push over Mowbizz! Lol. Your getting some company (but not till Sunday). 

Boat launch is in bad shape.

I love the circus videos especially the ones with laker cam!
Thanks Jiggin for keeping me entertained now and through the summer months when I long for ice fishing!

Went out for a few hours this afternoon after a docs appointment...conditio ns the same as yesterday on the lake (about an inch of corn slush on top of 14Ē of good ice)
Got a chew and screw on a tip up and no takers on the lakers but saw more on camera in a couple hours than in the last 2 weeks in the other spot. Taking my brother out tomorrow to introduce him to jigging for lake trout...no suckers to be had in the local bait shops...they say everyoneís out of them. Going to try something different and see how the fish react.
If itís successful Iíll post about it...if not 😡

Be careful at the Wellington ramp underneath the foot of water and broken up ice is some holes the size of 55 gallon trash cans, you can still get on to the right of the ramp or to the left . Tomorrow will be a deffinately hurting on the ramp and probbaly make it just about done for . Best of luck to who ever has shacks out there still, weathers needs to turn

Yeah I got on and off okay by going right on the way out and I tried the other side coming back with no problems. Iím going to be out there tomorrow to ride out the storm and see what it does to the ice. Ramp is toast as we all know. Maybe Iíll have to test the Argoís boating abilities!😬

Quick mid-day update on conditions here on Newfound...snowed earlier then had a couple hours of rain and very little wind surprisingly. No huge downpours and now the wind is picking up a bit and rain stopped for now.
I think we made out pretty good with the storm up here.
My daughter is on the coast in Hampton and she says itís wild there with the power going out a little while ago. Iíll Report later too.

Youíre welcome!
Hereís a few pics of the conditions right now...started spitting light rain with a few wind gusts. Slush has actually hardened up so you can walk on top. Seen a half dozen lakers on cam but nobodyís feeding yet!

Storm should be over soon other than high winds. Hopefully all of the NH big lakes held onto the ice they had before the storm!

Went home and grab my planks and cross pieces. With the help of Psycho, Laker Taker, Tippin and Mowbizz we were able to put the bridge together and string it across the open water / cruddy ice.

Hopefully no one will use this bridge for removing houses or driving cars / trucks across. It is ONLY intended for foot travel, snowmobiles and ATV's so we can continue to fish and more importantly to get off the ice at the end of the day.

All are welcome to use this bridge but again, we purposely sized it for ONLY for foot travel, snowmobiles and ATV's.

Thanks guys for the help! Good work, Appreciate it.
