    Who's ready to fish?
    Almost walked out to 3/4 the way to the EC10 buoy marker in the distance

    Enjoyed the day out, it was slow fishing for me. None the less had a great day on the ice and got a little wind burned

    Ran into Jimmy Riggin on the way back in and he was doing well at his hut rentals. Apparently that was the HOT SPOT to be at today! Itching to get back out a.s.a.p. now that I know where the fish where biting

    Some great shots, Red! I've yet to go out at Old Cut, only done St. Willy's, so it's pretty cool seeing these angles in the winter.

    Good to see you got out Red Fish. Looks like a lonely walk out to the candle stick. That four pic looks like your walking on the surface of Mars;). How much ice did ya have out there?

    Good to hear from you stomp,FRANKIE and also jumbos.It was great to finally have gotten out.It was slow,but at least I wasn`t working:)jumbos,it was about 6.5 inches of ice where I was,and I was fishing in about 7 feet of water(fow).jumbos,walking on the surface of Mars,LOL,was quite strange for the first time this year,especially on the black ice.There where spots out there in closer,were you could actually see the bottom,with small weed patches here & there,looking through that black ice made it seem like the ice was not all that thick,but after awhile,I began to feel more comfortable.I am going to the Toronto Boat Show this weekend,and I can`t wait to head out again next week,on Long Point Bay.:)Good Luck to everyone.

    My daughter and myself had a great time at the Toronto Boat Show today.The weather for driving sure was not the best this morning to Toronto.Luckily we were on a tour bus with 34 other peole heading to the show,I was glad that I was not driving.All in all from some of the report`s that I have read,the fishing down at Long Point Bay sounded like it was slow today.I will head down to Long Point Bay again through the week for some Perch and hopefully catch some Pike also.8D

    Sorry to hear about your bad experience on the ice Phantom,because I usually fish solo(most of the people are working through the week,when I like to go fishing),I always make 100% sure that the ice conditions are safe,(I read the fishing report`s and call some of the local ice fishing business`s first in the area)I have a 3 hour roundtrip drive to Long Point Bay,and it would also have been a waste of gas(it seems like the gas is going up all the time $$$)and a wasted day,if I could not get out onto the ice,once I have arrived at Long Point Bay.Take Care.8D
