How were the ice conditions Hustla?? Slush? Did you run a sled?

AllYakedup, It is about 5 hours for me but I make the run 4-5 times a year and usually stay 3-4 days. To good of a fishery not to go.

thanks man, I've seen those methane pockets at Seaman....foot and a half of ice and you will have an open hole 2 feet wide. At least those kind are pretty visible... I imagine there are some that are just thin spots.

@pod exactly..they freeze at night 1 inch thick sometimes 3' diameter. . A friend of mine was pushing my sled last year and as he walked over it, it blew open..definitaly not dumping 16k sleds for no reason..they are in usual spots tho..
