I fished St.Williams yesterday and walked off about 5pm. ice was melting fast and Granger's was pulling his huts off. We had good 10" of black ice and water was gin clear.There is 2 pressure cracks, the first we had to walk east a long ways to go around and another out pasted the huts which a few guys took a chance crossing, not this cat, I didn't want to get wet:( With this warm weather, I think I'm staying on shore, could brake up if we get a good wind, you never know out there[?][xx(]

I caught 4 jumbos, 1 was 13 1/2" other 3 were 12" Lots of dinkers. 1 bonus Pike 30" and released. I brought home about 30 Perch, most 8to9". Was a nice day, didn't need the heater. Having Perch for super tonight.





Tried my new Pack Shack, worked great but I don't know how it likes LPB wind. I don't know of a windier place in the world like LPB can get.

I've used a Pakshak for a couple of years now. Really like it! For the wind I installed 4 grommets (plastic ones)to the skirt and tied a short loop of parachute cord to and I use ice anchors to hold it before I flip it over. It actually handles the wind very well this way.

This year I picked up a 2 man Clam Nanook. Tried it today with my son and it worked well also. TC

Thanks for the tip trky chsr, I'll pick some up. I have a Clam Guide and I find it to hard to pull in the snow. OK behind a ATV,or clean ice.
