Hit Granby today with downrigger for the first time this year. Great day to be on the lake, no wind and lots of sunshine! Going out was a piece of cake, but leaving was another story. We got caught in some deep slush and had to dig out once. Somehow I managed to lose my gps, sucks. If anyone finds one, please let me know. Here are a few pics from today.

Nice fish. If I can get your GPS coordinates where you were fishing I will look for your GPS on Friday, which I took as a day off for fishing at Granby. :)

Beer reward for safe return!!

Pikester, slush and snow is doable if you keep moving. We got stuck when some trash flew out of one of our sleds and we and had to stop to get it

Triple the incentives to go up there then: the fishing, the potential beer, and last, but not least, the GPS coords on your unit. :biggrin1:

Nice fish buddy! We will be up there on Sunday. If me and AO happen to find your GPS we will definitely return it to you.

Great fish! Sounds like I'll be up there this weekend as well and will keep an eye out for your gps. Was the slush a big problem? Are ATVs still able to get around?

Thanks guys for being on the lookout. If I don't get it back, I hope it goes to the bottom of the lake!:). Hope everyone tears it up this weekend

Granby on Tuesday

Hit Granby today with downrigger for the first time this year. Great day to be on the lake, no wind and lots of sunshine! Going out was a piece of cake, but leaving was another story. We got caught in some deep slush and had to dig out once. Somehow I managed to lose my gps, sucks. If anyone finds one, please let me know. Here are a few pics from today.

Fish4brains and I were there too, Greg caught and released a nice 36" 15 1/2 lb , We caught our eaters too, Was a great day on the ice.

Did you try ATV this weekend, or see any out? Thanks

Hooker, I did this weekend. IT wasn't too bad. I don't think I would have made it without chains though. Do your best to avoid the slush pockets and you should be ok. Ironically only the sled got stuck this weekend, but my wife drove it right into about 8"es of standing water on the ice.... A little scary for her.

Thanks for the info, sucks she got stuck. With the winds Thursday and Friday I think I'll wait until Monday and take the ATV, thanks again

Anyone using UTVs or is that asking for trouble right now? Not just getting stuck but what about going through?

"No ice is safe ice". I did see one UTV with tracks and the lake had a consistent 12+ wherever I drilled. I fished three different spots all over the lake.
