I'm headed out in the morning. Not likely to set out traps, just jigging in the portable. I expect I'll have the pond to myself.

Course Iíll be out...fishing in nothing but a T Shirt probably.  I like staying mobile and warm at the same time.

I planned to go to Danforths, but changed plans and I will be heading to Granite instead.
I have a large clam pop up and my lp tank is full.

Of course since I am the one who started this post. I will be out with my Eskimo pop-up with heat. Probably headed to my favorite Lake. I agree with all of you who said as long as there is no wind the cold isn't that bad

Looks like a nice light weight setup... Do you leave the shack on ice/shoreline or do you trailer it beside the sled everytime?

I'll be out in a black popup on a two trap lake. Wind doesn't look too bad so it should be nice.

Good luck, I surprisingly got one earlier this year that was almost legal.

I don't think its going to be brutal because the wind will be down...headed to an old stomping ground for some largemouth and smallmouth...staying warm with our fire bucket...she be a wonderful day on the ice with plenty of sun..no shelter needed
when chuck norris played golf for money, chuck marked down a hole in zero every time, the golf pro said, "chuck: you can't score zero on a hole." Chuck norris turned towards the man and said, "I'm chuck norris, the man proceeded to pour gas over his body and set himself on fire because that would be less painful than getting roundhouse kicked by chuck norris....chuck norris roundhouse kicked him in the face anyways

Looks like there could be a couple more days of some sub 32 weather coming later next week too. Could be two good weekends in a row for the ice.

I leave it on the ice, depending on the conditions and future forecast Iíll either block it up real quick and secure to the ice or simply drag it into shore and tie it off.  It only weighs about 300 pounds so itís easy to move even by hand.  I use a 2500 pound winch that I rig up to the sled battery to drag it onto the trailer with the sled, very easy to move about to other lakes.

Stopped there today you will have no problem parking. If you have a snowmachine you should be OK. If you are pulling a sled by hand it might be a little rough the snow is fresh and a little deep. No one was out yet so no trails to follow. Good luck. The NW wind was brutal today.

Thanks M&M

Bringing the sled so I can explore

Wind was ugly on Fraklin Pierce today. Started near the no wake area and had to move to a cove to get out of the wind.

Got to the lake pre-dawn and fished until 3pm

Fished deep for Lakers= nothing (found something but they stayed on the bottom)
Packed up and moved in shallow.
We got about a dozen bows in 3 to four fow.
1/16 oz. Pink jig with a tiny piece of dilly.

We took 2 home at roughly 15 inches each.
