  1. While the time says “7:30”, I wouldn’t worry too much about that. I will be down there around that time, but I won’t launch until 8-8:30. I tried ice fishing once. I see no reason to do it again!!


  2. My boat it’s open for one person now that being said I will meet up with everyone but I have to launch some where different
