.... but i can't make it this weekend (12/20) but I'm still planning on being up there the weekend after Christmas (27th & 28th), Hope some of you will be back and we can "hook up"! (bad pun)

I'll be looking for the report from this weekend! Tight lines!

Anyone have any idea when someone's going to pick a date for the outing on HL?

I'd like to try and get up there this weekend. Where do you get bait (minnows)? Think the ice will be sledable (as in snowmobile)?

Where will you be? Saturday will be my first time out. Wasn't up last weekend, so I have no idea on the ice. I hope to get the quad out, if it is extra safe (I'm a chicken). On my side (Cut River area) it's a fair ways to walk. Do you leave from the boat launch site by the drug store? (Rite Aid?)

Say when, and I'll show up with a bucket of minnows. Sportsman resort 500' from my front door sells 'em. DNR launch is close to the Rite Aid, right?

RJF: Yes, DNR Launch is near the Rite-Aid (Zone 10), across from the high school. It's also were Tip-Up-Town is set up.

Fishfoote: Minnows can be had at "Lyman's on the Lake", (Zone 7) he's also on the south end, further west down M-55.

Good Luck! :D

Sounds great. I'll pull a Fish Trap Guide. Fished the lake for many years, but never on the South side. Look forward to it. 7:00 might be a little early, but I'll shoot for it. Channel 8 on the radio. I'll bring a camera, for posterity (sp).

Where is Houghton Lake? I can come up in the afternoon if you think you'll still be around. This will be my first ice outing ever so I'd like others to be around. I'd leave Waterford at 1pm or so.
Thanks!
