Decided to get an early 5:00 am start from Monte Vista and try to hit the am bite. When I arrived at 8:00 it was minus 17 but NO WIND! Bad news was 6 inches on new snow and NO snowmobiles to pack it, meant for a hard pull of the sled down and back out. So if you got off track, you broke through a foot of snow. Anyway, bite was slow but steady. Iced 6 lakers in 6 hours and was REALLY slow 11:00 to 2:30. But inside the hut (guys without are really missing out) it rose to a balmy comfortable temp and it was like sitting in the living room! To the fella who was worried about ice thaw, Taylor should be good for a while yet! Good luck and enjoy these last hard water daze!

I got out about 125 yards from shore. In 39 FOW. Believe me it was a trudge. Then the out was all uphill, with no hard pack, whew....had a sweat worked up. I love this lake tho. I had an echo at my jig that looked like a submarine, much bigger than the usual 18 inch laker. I figured it was the monster I seek, but he swam on after a look. Keeps me coming back.
Re Sanchez, I will post there with some info you will want to read.
