With most sledding still a tough go, it seemed like the best way to welcome in the new year was to get a line in the water. A cousin was up at his place fishing a half-mile or so offshore so I went up and grabbed one of his sleds and joined him for a few hours.

A tad breezy but a nice sunny day. Love the solitude of the lake in winter.

Didn’t get the fish the best part of the day so it was slow, a few Saugers and this guy. Not a huge Pike but judging by the girth, it had just finished downing its share of fish.

Hoping to see some photos of what you anglers are hauling in as the year progresses.

Ventured out around 4pm for the late bite yesterday, warm but really breezy. Planned to fish until 6pm as it seems they were biting right around 5pm. Two Northerns and a largemouth bass, all went back into the lake. Best part was enjoying a cold beer around 5pm with my buddy and watching this!

Nice pic!! sturgeon spearing opens this weekend and I know some people might say its only a fish but this season will prove to be detrimental to the spearing season as and don't quote me but has to be done in a shanty and with ice as iffy as it is all over its going to be tough and I thought it took 7 to 10 years to even get a sturgeon tag, couldn't imagine waiting and mother nature throws them this giant curve ball. Didn't get on any ice this year, now looking into getting my Smokercraft set up for some early season coho trolling on the big pond!

Nice catch and that's some good eating right there! Hard to beat fresh trout on the grill.
