Sorry, no fish pics today, just nature shots of my first outing of 2014.

 

Was SOL when where I thought I was going to get live bait today was closed. Maybe not so bad afterall, as I spent the day familiarizing myself with using a sonar. This was my first ever ice fishing outing with a hut, sled + a fair walk and sonar. My previous ice fishing experience was very limited and I wasn't sure how I was going to like spending a whole day on the ice.

 

I was pleased that my ice ducer worked for my unit, so I didn't need to spend time fiddling around with the regular ducer trying to get it level. This is one area I didn't want to "Red & Green", though Knuguy, you'll have to explain to me how to mount a drive to the end of my auger. Was limited to one hole today and next time I want to be able to drill a bunch.

 

The drive in:

I jigged a large Williams Wobbler for most of the afternoon, with the odd small fish appearing on the sonar but nothing taking interest. For an entry level fish finder (PiranhaMax 175), I was amazed at how it could pick up even the smallest fish. I was fishing in 57 ft of water, and I actually had to turn down the sensitivity, because I didn't want it picking up every baitfish that swam by.

 

I had the whole lake to myself. It was cold, but the walk both ways had me sweating for a good chunk of the day. I don't know if my sonar would have functioned well had I chosen to spend the day outside of my hut drilling more holes.

 

A peaceful end, to a fun day:

 I will be back, with live bait and an automatized auger.

Send me a PM with which lake you're seeing! Curious if it's actually the same one.

oh ok, lots of rainbow lakes near you, best area for them is around haliburton, however there are quite few in your area but some require a snowmobile, lol.
