    You missed the grand opening Saturday , The whales were snapping. Open the ice mags it through this warm spell hard to say there's not much ice to begin with. If there Any ice it will be open Saturday. Good luck be safe, And use your Spud. Hook them in the lips

    To all fellow whale hunters there is ice at the zoo, the raft Fairhaven or Selfridge this Saturday. We should all have a moment of silence at 7:20 a.m., For all of our lost whale hunters. No matter what the reason is a man lost his life here. And I could have been me are you.

    They are forecasting N/NE winds Wednesday night into Thursday morning with gusts in the low 40's. Just can't catch a break this year.

    I got the day off tomorrow. Not even entertaining the zoo unless I feel like trolling. I’ll be ducking into a canal on a bucket maybe an igloo by the end of the day

    A canal don't sound badd, I just have no access to the dark side. But Sitting on a bucket can get a little rough, Lol. May just have to take my shany set up on a dock in the back basin, Fish out the windows told me about a foot down to the Ice. Good luck and be safe, And hook them in the lips

    Be careful out there. Better bring life jacket so you can pull yourself up or throw to someone else that may have went in. It's deep water now
