As luck would have it, I just replaced my shanty skis last week....finding them at thrift shops was a challenge.....I found mine at the thrift store that used to be the old Hartville Hardware.  They had about a dozen sets.

I too hit Mogodore yesterday......the lake was one ice making machine my friends....It was perpetually growling like an angry old man. A beautiful sound to my ears!  I was on the SR43 side.   For some reason there isn't a whole lot of people fishing over there this year.

Pig you bring all of this up.  Last week on Nimi there was plenty of snow so I didn't use my cleats....I drilled 2 holes and as I was pulling my shanty over them, the water under the snow made the ice very slippery.  My feet went out from under me, and I fell butt first right on top of my auger.  Luckily I didn't hit the blades!!!  I have a really nice bruise.  I learned something that day.............the hard way

slabslayer...I ran into a guy at Mogodore that had a gas powered auger....I told him to be careful because I thought that it was illegal to use one out there.  He said someone else told him that so he called about it and some authority figure told him they can be used.  You might want to call District 3 for confirmation.......

Save your money and do like I do......when the ice gets thick, take some young kid along with you.  They never tire ... :)

I'll tell you what, we auger another 3 holes at C5 and we'll be able to fish it in a boat!  Went for about an hour before the big game.......the bite was on, lots of dinks.  It was about mid way through the second quarter that I started to wish I would have stayed on the lake.    :)

Turkeys have been out there for several years that I know of.  I've seen a few here and there, but never a flock like that!  Looks like they're there to stay!  I can't believe the things most people miss by staying inside this time of year.  Nice report.

Mogadore Reservoir / Mogodore 1/31 SR 43 side

Hit the lake yesterday for a few hours. Saw a few guys off of the Lansinger Rd. access.  I stayed closer to SR 43.  Bite was a little slow but still managed to take home dinner........and maybe enough left over for a sandwich or two.  Snow was about 4 to 5 inches. I long walk was a great cardiovascular. Ice was around 6 to 8.

Hit CLR yesterday.  The beautiful thing was the ice was only about 6 to 7 inches vs the 10 to 12 I've seen other places. The bite was on, but allot of dinks.

I like fishing after dark and taking one of those floating Styrofoam lights.  Auger a hole and set it up, then fish around it.  Sometimes doing it that way you can catch them a couple feet under the ice.

All I know is I got shut out Sunday afternoon for the first time this year.  Thought I'd do a little exploring and try out a new area.

This time of year sometimes getting shut out comes with the territory.

Still beats no ice!

Well, after all the discussion about meeting trapperjon on Mogodore, I ended up staying home and watching giant gusts of wind blow whiteout conditions in my backyard.  

Wish I would have gone out............ :D
