Today was my first on hardwater, a few weeks late but not a dollar short.
-1 at arrival just at sun up.
11" solid ice. 14 traps set between 3 people, well below our legal limit of 7 each.
Chased flags all day. 13 pike iced, 5 kept over 20 flags tripped.
No wind was a blessing and we never sat in a shanty.
I have 3 more opportunities to walk on water before 2020 and I'm going to take full advantage.
Big lakes north are very close for Lakers.
Stay safe , on top and have a fantastic 20 weeks on ice.
