Slow warm afternoon. Took me 4 hrs to get these. Missed a few, lost 1 halfway up. That hurts when it's this slow. Edges are BRUTAL. can't last much more than a week-

If the edges were sketchy a few days ago, but it's cold now and will be tomorrow, any chance it'll be safe up there? I'm new to this ice stuff, and not sure how it'll behave.

Throw big rocks like we use to in the old days. I would bomb one as high as I could if it didn't go through Slayer would precede to rock then I would follow and repeat. :biggrin1:

Yep I figure a 4lb rock thrown as high as Tommy could would have a force of like 200 lbs when it hit the ice. always worked!:D

It was good yesterday. We used a spud bar, but the ice was a solid 6-8 inches on the lake. We found a school pretty close to the dam, and they were hungry!
