Just a note to those that may venture onto Newfound Lake. Salmon Slammer and I removed our house yesterday due to ice conditions near our location. A snowmobile and a vehicle went through this weekend about 300 ft from our house. Everyone got out ok, the snowmobilier is a good friend of Salmon Slammers and he was a little shook up, did get to talk to him yesterday and he is doing well. It is our understanding that the Newfound Derby is cancelled this year. The ice conditions have been realy stange to say the least on Newfound. There is open water east of the boat ramp, all the way across to the condos and north of whitemore point. It is hard to believe when you see the open water. There are still areas with plenty of ice and good ice, we just decided to bring it on home. We will fish some of the small ponds this week and look forward to some early spring fishing.
