Figured we’d better get this going. No report from me yet, I’m stuck on land waiting for a new impeller to get here. I did see two boats fishing off the mouth of the Tawas River this morning. No dock in yet and ice on both sides of the launch but there is just enough space to wedge a boat in there. There is still solid ice from about Walmart east to Jerry’s and there are chunks of ice floating west and south of there so you really have to watch the wind. Anyway I’m excited to get this going for hopefully another fun year.

Have any idea whats up with the sail boat thats been sitting in the harbor all winter Andy? I heard they had trouble last fall and it didn't get pulled. I noticed it the day after I met you out there to go ice fishing, but I did hear about it earlier in the winter.
Wow. Didn’t notice it was still there. Hopefully the bay bubblers protected it a bit.

In on the first page! Will be May at the earliest before I can make the trip but looking forward to getting out there again this year.
👀 Hi Andy! Will be following along and participating when I can.
Looking forward to your reports guys. The way the weather is looking it might be May before we can get after it. Lol

Ya, this weekend isn't looking to promising for getting the boat wet for me. Guess I'll go net shopping Saturday and some wings at Sporty's in Pinconning. Maybe next weekend.

Do you guys think I could get out there with my 14' startcraft right now? I don't know how close the fish are in this time of year.
Spent many springs and falls for that matter in only a 14 footer. You’ll be fine inside the bay as long as you’re paying attention to the wind which I know you will be.
unfortunately lots of ice still floating and moving daily. Checked Oscoda this afternoon and it’s clear with one dock in. I’m getting back injections tomorrow morning, if I m feeling alright I might try it up there in the afternoon.

Thanks Andy I appreciate the info. I'm very safety conscious so it would have to be relatively calm. I'd like to hit that reef. Good luck on the back injections, I had it done a few times and was well worth it.
