We like to get everyone moving in that direction if they end up needing divers. But it really up to local fire first responders to get someone on surface. It is a 20-30 minute run for most our people and consider mutual aid call. Anyways guy got crawled to shore in his truck drove off before first cop even got location.. At which point everyone except local closes unit got cancelled off. They were going to try to catch him on road coming out.
Ice is getting bad fast now. Get some rain next couple days best to stay off or slide out in skiff. Can be a foot thick and if candled going to fall threw.

Here is todays mornings catch smallest 16 inches biggest 18+. I had one fish was over 20 I put back today. Yesterday I was hungry for fish today I didn't feel need to keep it.

DNR won't let me drag big nets for them eyes lol.

I saw a big flat boat and an airboat docked at center landing at goose the other day. I know airboat wasn't yours but seen it around goose before. I was wondering if was any of your fishing crew. Looked like they were waiting for someone else before heading out.

I remember late in the spring when the ice was pretty sketchy. But, the panfishing was really hot. We would pull a 12 foot Jon boat out on the ice in case we fell through. One guy walking on each side. That was when I was young and invincible.

When I say we pulled the boat on the ice, it was a 17' V-bottom on the trailer behind a 3/4 ton pickup. LOL. The ice was 28" thick. Heck, they had tractor trailers out on the ice for a big snowmobile race.

Part of our crew put out at goose Saturday morning but other than that we’ve been putting in at 7th Street.
