    We just hit 6" of ice on Sabattus Lake last weekend. Usually we're out there well before X-mas. Been a weird winter

    These piss poor snowfall winters are really getting me down. No point in taking out a snowmobile just to get your spine bounced through your skull or to tear up the machine.

    Yep. Tough to enjoy winter when there's no snow.

    My sister lives on Little Sebago and there was bare ice everywhere this past Sunday. My 16yo nephew took his sled out with my 11yo nephew towing on a tube and all was well and good until he whipped him and he ragdolled off it across the lake. Thats usually reserved for when theres snow for padding but after his 10min meltdown he walked it off like a champ :rofl:

    I skipped plowing this AM; if it's going to switch to sleet I'd prefer let it crust up on top of the snow rather than on a bare surface. But I do very much enjoy it. I just wish there was more to plow from this storm.
    When I was plowing with my old '84 & Fisher Speedcast we were getting big storms (12" or better) multiple times a year and it was killing my clutch leg. So in 2018 I upgraded to my current truck and an XV2 and in the 3 winters since then I think we've only had one storm that dropped more than 8"

    One of the wheels fell off my snowblower this morning, oops! Luckily I was 99% done and just trying to tidy up the end of the driveway. The little lock pin is gone but I'd imagine they're not hard to come by.

    I’d like to think I’m a tough SOB but for sure it would take more than 10 min to walk it off now.

    Rumor has it that as you get older you don't bounce quite as well. At 36 it's not much of a difference yet, but I have started noticing it. And I hear it's a fairly steep bell curve.

    I've had mixed luck fishing Little Sebago. During the summer I've caught Bass & Brown Trout, but almost never any Pickerel. But ice fishing...Pickerel, Pickerel, Pickerel.

    They were ice fishing this weekend and same deal, always pickerel and yellow perch. They get unceremoniously thrown onto a cleared spot on the ice for the bald eagles to chow down on. My sister snagged a nice 3-4lb bass and a decent white perch Sunday though, those go back into the water.
    I live on Highland Lake, used to take my canoe out and fish every-single-day after school as a kid and over the course of about 15 years watched the lake go from decent large-mouth bass and white perch to all god damned pickerel to the point where I stopped fishing. Highland is a polluted mud puddle anyways at this point. The house next to the ROW has their gray water dumping right into the shoreline. Can always tell when they're doing laundry because the boat launch is all soap bubbles.

    Sounds like Sabattus Lake, although the water quality on Sabattus has actually improved considerably over the last 10 years or so. Sabattus owes most of its pollution to Nitrogen & Phosphorus runoff from a poorly-managed chicken farm in the late 60's/early 70's, but being so heavily developed obviously doesn't help.

    Our fish are Pike and Bass, but mostly Pike. Same thing, though, you see a lot of them left out on the ice for the Eagles.

    Seems like the MDEP would be pretty interested in a case like that.. Obviously theres a lot of questionable wastewater systems in older camps, but direct discharge into the lake seems like a pretty hard line in the sand
