All the houses have now been moved to fresh spots. I was able to move 3 on monday and florida yesterday. The fishing was a bit slower yuesterday afteernoon but Ben landed a nother pike a 36 incher. Thats 3 feet of fish.
My collage studenets arrived amanda,heidi,harris,parker ,cody,travis and dylon. The girls were outfishing the guys when I left the lake last night. They fished milacs last year and caught 5 fish,they had all ready passed that mark before I came off the lake.
Jeff left a day early ? Not sure what happen.I had him fish in montana and spend the night in california.Then yesterday moved him to arizona. I arrived to fix the gs lights and he said if I'm working in here he's leaving? i told him I had to fix it to have lite?
Mike from "Teamiceheave" and his gal are in montana they had caght a few fish but were not banging them out. They leave today and I will move montana to a fresh spot for the next fishermen.
Yesterday was another wondeful day on the ice.With a awesome sunrise.
I spent the late afternoon cleaning up the drifted snow around buddy Hillmen's bridge. They sure make one heck of a road and I look forward to hepling out all winter long. I put blue thunder through a workout yesterday and need to check all the bolts before I do any more plowing.
Today I will also spend time detailing arizona as it is a mess. Once its cleaned up it should be a pretty nice 5 man sleeper.
We still have two sleepers open for the up and coming weekend 6th, 7th. It sure would be nice to have fishernmen in them as once the weekends gone I can not make it up untell next year.

Mike and Becky headed home yesterday ywith there 8 fish. They had deccent fishingand had a ction through out there stay.
Ben and Shawna have ebjoyed there dtay abd had some great action from 8pm tell midnight wednesday night, They have caught well over 60 fish counting all the perch.The college kids worked the north cribs yesterday and had action all day long.
I landed a nice keeper when I was prepping arizona and have high hopes for that area. Such high hopes I moved montana into the area.
Minnesota will stay atleast one more night as I get califormia and florida moved today.
I have such another busy day today I am hitting the lake before day light today.Arizona is a house that use to belong to Jeff and I do not think it had ever been vacumed since it was built? Wow sure has turned into a chore gettting it ready but will be worth it to have a 5 man sleeper.
I'm sure theres some more bugs to work out and we will take it one day at a time;

Said goodbye to all my fishermen yesterday morning. The colleage kids said they will be back next year. I then got busy finishing arizona for Ryan and his crew. Wes rolled in 8 am sharp and I got them settled in and continued to work in arizona. Just as I buttoned that one up Tim and his buddy arrived for one day in minnesotaas as well as the guys in arizona. Once I had evryone settled in I moved florida and prepped her out and then took california out deeper. Tony did not show for california so I did not auger the holes and headed off the lake. Ted and his buddy rolled in just after dark. As I met them at hillmens it had snowed a dusting and the wind was howling. I knew before we hit the lake that finding florida in the dark was going to be a challenge and sure enough as soon as I hit the lake the landscape had changed do to the blowing wind. It took a few extra minutes to find the house but I managed to find it and get them settled in. Then it was off to do the rounds for the eve. Tim landed a 38 inch pike while greg was in town and did not have a camera. Montana and arizona both had slow bites all day with each house only having 3 keepers. Greg landed a fat 23 while I was in old minneota and a small scuffit plus tim missed two bites. Back to florida and the guys were all settled in and hoping for a good bite.
Thursday nights sunset
