Ice is Here

The original plan this morning was to go and troll the open waters of Brant Lake. Chris and I didn't find too much open water at all. In the past couple of days, Brant has made ice like crazy and about half of the lake has a full freeze. The ice still isn't quite safe enough to fish on but it'll only be a few more days.

Plan B was Schroon Lake. We got there and found not much ice. We decided to give it a go. An eagle payed us a visit overhead within the first 15 minutes and t
hats just about the best thing we came across for the hour or so that we trolled. No hits, no fish. Still it was was no doubt a beautiful day on the water. The sun kept us comfortable and from being cold.

Tried out the new GoPro Hero 2 when we were on the water. It did not fail to impress. Check out this short clip on youtube....

Stopped on the way home and found fishable ice. Chris and I will be out tomorrow morning early for the first ice fishing of the winter!
