  1. Could not stand it, so I grabbed the spud bar and walked back to the pond at our shop. I almost pooped my self when I didn't spud right through so out I went. I admit there was alot of trampoline effect going on. I broke out chunk and it was just shy of 2 inches and clear as glass. So if these temps drop and the snow stays off I may be able to ice some gills by this weekend. I read that at 20 degrees in 24 hours makes an inch so sharpen your cleats.


  2. LOL!!!! AWESOME!!!

    Please be careful and don't get too anxious. The ice will be here soon enough. Better to wait and stay safe than push it too much...
  3. I also shall wait! I am only some dumb, not plum dumb. Besides that I don't have my float suit yet.

    1.5" feels like your riding on waves ;) Been there......done that. I'll wait for at least 2 :D :D
  8. The pond is only knee deep where I checked. I admit it was it the smartest thing I have done but curiosity was killing me, I just couldn't stand not knowing the thickness.

  9. That's awsome news,

    i'm hoping to be on some ice before christmas, i have the perfect little pond in mind, if i can get permission again, with big bubba gills in it. Should have 4 in. on it by the end of next week. :)
