My itch is soooo bad that I have to go find ice somewhere! Ice has been found and fishing was decent.

The road up wasn't too bad until we ran into some deeper snow. Lucky a fellow forum member with the name of John was able to fit us in his bad ass Tacoma and get us within 1/4 of the lake. Fished with minimal success on 4 inches of ice, wind wasn't too bad and the fish were tight lipped but we managed a handful.

Just go to SM?
I would but last year it wasn't frozen this early and it was cold. I got up there and it was soft slush and then lake water. I think FRR would be more solid. But you make a good point fish are the same tiny size either or...

Sounds like I got me a couple of chances for sure. IT would be cool if both were. My buddy going with me has never caught a tiger or a brookie through ice.

I saw that and for Monday the forcast calls for 74mph gusts. I might turn into a drone and wildly fly all over the summit. :p

Wind like that will tear down the ice pretty quick... or at least make it unsafe. Be careful if you go.

Always bud. I don't go too far from shore and usually leave a rope out.

If you have a jeep, 4 runner and chains on you'll get up far and be close to it sure, but if not it could be a 2 t o 3 mile hike. Thank god I will go with someone that has snow mobiles.
