Mike discovers how smokies got their name. Ice fishing isn't always just fishing. This lunch break was on Clearwater Lake.
Perchmaster asked about Teggau Lake. Here Susanne is coming off the portage trail and along the creek edge.......some current so the ice is thin! Note the result of the forest fire in the background. Teggau Lake is accessed off of Eagle way down by Buzzard Falls. The lake is probably the deepest in the NW region.......over 500 feet!
Perchmaster also asked about those secret ice fishing rigs he sent me. That reminded me to give them a try and hey they seem to work. A pike near the lodge was intent on eating it.....tipped with a minnow.
