I wanted to try new lakes this year starting out this season. Nothing wrong with the usual milk run and did quite well when I did. So far I've hit 10 new bodies of water. 5 in the UP - all but one I would go back to. 5 in the LP - 1 decent, 2 exceptional , 1 I'll give another go at (weather was poor) and 1 that looked great but got a big 0 on. I don't expect to repeat but will adventure out of my comfort zone more often. 1 of the exceptional spots came from a pair of guys chatting about the lake while leaving the ice on another lake. Picqued my curiosity and made sure it got investigated. On a side note in the military they preach Comsec. (Communication Security) you never know who's listening in.
