Lake Couchiching - Birchmere
The lake was making ice today! I had 9" of blue and 1.5" of white ice under the hut. Perch were biting at a good rate. 2" of powder on the ice makes for good travelling. A pressure crack extends in a north/south direction about 600m from shore, and is more pronounced on the southern end (towards Cedar Island.) It is solid enough to cross safely.... Read more

Lake Couchiching - Birchmere / Borland Avenue December 26, 2013
I just walked out off of Borland St. onto Couchiching, drilling holes and measuring as I went. 50m from shore there was 4"blue + 6"of white. (10" total) I thought I'd died and gone to Heaven, so I carried on. The results were disappointing. 100m from shore there was 4"blue+5"white. (9" total). Another 100m later, and there was only 4.5" of blue, covered with a foot of snow. Water quickly flooded the area I was standing. I could see lots of slush in skidoo tracks around the area. I pushed on another 100m and found a spot where someone else had checked, and decided to use their hole to measure. This was the farthest point I went, and I could see that the other person had turned around, and not fished. Water had pushed up on top of the ice through the hole already, and as I bent over to measure the ice (which was 4"blue with a foot of loose snow/slush on top) the ice started to crack a LOT! I decided to make my way back to shore. Buzz killed. Until tomorrow.... Read more

Put my hut out on Sunday. 12" of slush and frozen slush + a lot of snow on top of 4-5" black ice. In some places slush hasn't frozen. I towed the hut out, anchored it, fished for a few minutes, then left. It's still there, which is a good sign... I saw a couple of ATVs buried up to their nuts in slush getting helped off the lake. Be careful out there! ... Read more
