Went for a drive yesterday and checked out some of my favorite lakes.  Berlin is way up.  Normally the southern end is just a tiny channel, but now it has water deep enough to launch a boat off the Price road gravel ramp.  Should be back down soon.  Hope it's lowered fully before it starts to freeze, don't want any air gaps!

Yea, I'll be back in when (if) >:( we ever get some ice.  Hope things drain out before the freeze.

At this point it'll be well into January if we have any ice at all

Drove by yesterday and water is still higher than normal.  Rain not helping us today either.  Also very muddy!!  Starting to get concerned about Berlin this year.  Probably unwarrented, in a couple weeks will be fine.  Just really want to start jigging for some eyes!! ;D ;D

We will get on the hard stuff this year. Its still December.  Most ice seasons start in January anyway.  We all got spoiled the last few seasons which started very early in some cases.  2 winters ago I was on Dec. 7 and the following weekend at Mog.  Then a thaw came and it started all over.  4 or 5 years back, I didn't get on Erie till the last day in Feb.  The ice was s..t and didn't get a bite, but still got out, and in, safely.  At least we won't have the thaw that seems to happen after a few weeks of fishing.  Berlin will fish this winter for sure.  Lots of time left.

Looking at the long term forecast, I'm getting more confident.  Sunday's still going to be in the 40's, but after that the next 3 days are going to be below freezing all day.  Hope that continues into the next forecast period.

No I haven't.  I'd forgotten about that.  I fished what they planted on Deer Creek, but forgot about Berlin.  Normally I try the roadbed, but if you have the gps location, I'd love to try it, if you don't mind sharing the spot with me for a little while.

Cool, what colors do you have, and where'd you get them.  I paint too.  But I do crappie jigs, not vibes.
