Still investigating, hope they are okay. Stay safe out there folks.
For sure an ice fishing lure, but we absolutely clean house with it during the summer months too.

…but local sticks say it’s in a bad spot, too shallow and sandy.
Combination of oilsands, forestry, water quality and overfishing.
Used to attract fish in stained water and low light conditions. Check to see if it’s legal in your area….
Tip of the Day
Cams: Look for fishy, not just for fish.
Great point, from a MarCum Facebook post:
> The discouraged angler said, “We’ve just put a camera down all these holes out here and there weren’t any fish.”
> He didn’t understand that fish aren’t just gonna sit there above the weeds all day and let predators eat them. In fact, It is fairly rare that you’ll see the fish up and around roaming above the weeds. If they are, you’re gonna have a lights-out bite.
> Just because he didn’t see the fish, doesn’t mean they aren’t there. I use my MarCum VS825 to find structure where fish might live. A big patch of weeds — standing or fallen — might be a good place to drop a line. If the weeds are fallen, it’s a perfect home for big ‘gills and crappies. If you don’t show them some bait, they have no reason to show themselves.
