made the time to get out to Mosquito for a few hours to check things out...lots of guys at the cemetary roadbed area, maybe 20 or more. i tried smack on the roadbed in 13-14'. Didnt get squat as usual. Had similar results as JIG did. I dont know why i keep coming back to this spot. I must be doing something wrong. No marks either. Hole hopped for a bit but man was that north wind brutal. Thought i had the fish of a lifetime but it turned out to be some sort of snag, it wouldnt come up past 7' so i broke it off and ended up not only losing my favorite jiggin rapala but also broke my rod tip. Didnt sound like anyone else was doing much either.....hopefully someone else had better luck than me. Ice where i was fishing was about 5 to 6" but i think i was on a bit of "backwards" ice.....like the ice that forms backwards somewhat, from the top. Some guys north of me said that they were on 4" tops. Water clarity was suprisingly ok i thought. LaDue: stopped by on the way home to drill a couple holes. Weird looking ice. "backwards" ice was obvious. Lots of frozen slush and water that seeped up and froze i could tell because of its off color. about 50' out was 6" and 50' more was 4". Bear in mind this is really not stucturally the best ice! It was really crappy looking. But i did see some tracks (at least 8) heading off out onto the lake. Big crack snapped open as i was walking around. yikes!! The plow guys only plowed an area for maybe 5 cars to park, tops.
