Put the kids to work on Saturday - I borrowed one from a buddy (my daughter had enough after 20 min. on Friday). 4 adults and 6 kids hooked up 22 walleye. The smallest was 16" the biggest was a 22.5" sow. My trustee took a 19.5 (his first fish on the ice:D and then a 16" You'd think someone would have though to have a camera:( Everything came shallow - 12 fow and less, on tip ups. Great day on Hubbard!

Ice/Snow conditions: In the morning I ran the 3 miles from the west side to the south end on a 2x4 atv with no problem - snow packed up nicely. There were a couple of slush spots that slowed me up at the southend. On the way back - after a day in the mid-40s, a bit more slush. Had to get off and push 3 times, but still not too bad. Ice was still a good 14 - 16" everywhere I drilled.

Ed - is the ice starting to pull away from the shore?? Do you have any of the GPS maps left? I meant to get one last weekend, but forgot. Still planning on coming up this weekend.
No, stayed on Hubbard and fish with friends there. Planning on coming up again Friday night. People I fished with last Saturday said the fish shut down completely on Sunday, hopefully they'll be good and hungry again this weekend.
EBE - Don't even think that I was there when Craig was throwing the net out - though we did see the CO's Saturday, compliance was 100%:D I do think they wrote a few while they were out there though. Some guy south of us tooled over during the CO's visit, no sticker on the ATV:eek: The woman CO did a pursuit on another ATV that decided it was time to pack and run soon as she headed toward the group he was fishing with - pretty funny, she gave him about a mile head start.

I'm planning on heading up tomorrow night after work...I may have to leave early. The weather looks like you should get some good temps at night at least. I'll call you tomorrow for a bait drop;)
