Well, I think the forums and website are getting back to normal.
Thanks to Josh at UPtechnologysolutions who started working on the website on short notice and cleaned up all the malicious code that was entered on the website and forums.
If you were infected from the previous site, please run the program called Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from the website http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php
I apologize to anyone that checked the website from work and may have had any problems, I received a few nasty emails about hosting a hacked website, etc.. but I'm sure that everyone knows I didn't do anything intentional, the site was compromised and unfortunately these things happen.
Josh has moved the website to a safer hosting and he spent the last few days getting things switched over and pulling the bad code out.
Again, sorry for any inconvienience this may have caused.
Please let me know if anyone is still having problems.
Google will take a week or so to get the all clear so if anyone is getting the blocked page, that will clear in the future.

Ice Fishing / LBDN last couple of weeks
« on: January 17, 2011, 07:14:56 AM »
The ice on the bay is great and there are a ton of shacks out there.
Fishing has been slow, for us anyways.
We have been marking a good number of fish, just having a hard time getting them to hit.
We have gotten some nice perch, a fair number of walleyes, and a few pike, so can't complain too much.
But fishing isn't great to say the least.
I have heard they are doing a little better on walleye south of gladstone, and heard that some shacks broke off just off escanaba and are gone now....
Hopefully fishing picks up and people are doing good somewhere else.

Ice Fishing / Ice Saw Review
« on: January 12, 2011, 10:54:52 AM »
Not sure if anyone is ever looking for an ice saw, but we ordered one a few weeks ago and thought I would put a review up just in case.
I made the hole in the shack alot bigger this summer so that we could spear pike if we wanted to. I originally just drilled holes around the edge of the hole then spudded the ice between the holes, but you end up with an ugly looking jagged hole..(Never good...)
I know some people use a chainsaw, but everytime i've seen it, it is messy as hell and there is gas/oil all over.
So we ordered an ice saw, it looks like a murder weapon, but works awesome. We ordered it from www.darkhousespearingsupply.com . It is very high quality and very sturdy. The handle is like a shovel handle, but the whole thing is lighter than a spud...
It cuts damn near as fast as a chainsaw, perfect sides on the hole, no gas/oil on the water, and there are hardly any ice chips to remove when you're done.
This is a picture of the ice saw...
Basically, you just nicely chip a hole in the ice like a spud, then when you're through, just start sawing up and down, cut the hole to the size/shape you want it and when you're done, stick the ice chunk and push it under the ice.
Way easier then spudding...

« on: January 01, 2011, 12:33:46 AM »
Moved the shack this afternoon, I was getting worried about all the rain we received over the last 2 days.
Ice is holding up fine, snow is gone from the ice and now it looks like a parking lot out there.. Just wide open and black..
Anyways, moved the shack and then fished before dark.. Got 2 perch ~11", a 13" walleye and a 17" walleye.
Marked a ton of fish.
Hope everyone had a great new years eve..
Happy New Year.

Ice Fishing / LBDN 12/16
« on: December 16, 2010, 06:10:33 PM »
Finally put the shack out this afternoon.
I put it in shallower than previous years as I made the hole in the shack bigger this summer.
Figured I would try spearing, and see if I could get a pike to come in.
Had one come in (about 28"-30") and hit the decoy, didn't throw the spear..it happened too quick, but a great way to break in the decoy.
Caught one small walleye on a glow jigging rap right at dark.
Marked a couple other fish, but no takers.
Didn't start fishing until almost 4:00.
There is at least 6" of great ice, and there were probably 10 shacks around me off the yellow gate with just about everyone I saw using 4-wheelers and snowmobiles.

Do you think it should be manadatory to have your real name in your posts? It is easy to attach to your signature, but do you think it will cut down on the drama and antagonizing?
I got a PM that it should be required and am wondering what everyone else thinks.

If you can make the picture smaller (under 1040k), when you post, at the bottom it says "Additional options", click that and just upload your pictures if they are less than 1040k in size.You can upload up to 4 per post.

If the pictures are too big, go to www.photobucket.com and register for an account (it's free).
Once you are signed up and logged in, click "Upload images and video", once the picture is uploaded and you are viewing it, on the left of the screen it says "IMG code", click that to twice to copy it, then when you are making your post, just right click where you want to put the picture and paste the link in your post.
This is a quick tutorial, if anyone has any tips, or better suggestions, please let me know.

Lake Michigan / Illegal fishing case appealed

I'm sure everyone local has already read about this, but i'm still pissed about these guys, and it doesn't seem like it will ever end...

Illegal fishing case appealed
By Jenny Lancour

MANISTIQUE - A tribal hearing was held Friday in Manistique to explain the $15,214 in restitution which three men were recently ordered to pay in connection with illegal commercial fishing operations in Little Bay de Noc.

Andrew, John and Kevin Schwartz - brothers from Rapid River and members of the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians - were sentenced last August on 79 violations of tribal rules relating to commercial fishing. The incidents occurred in early 2009 and were investigated by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources & Environment (DNRE).

The three men each had their tribal fishing rights taken away from them during their joint sentencing at the tribal center in Manistique on Aug. 20. They were assessed a total of $13,175 in fines and costs and $15,214 in restitution.

The Schwartz's defense lawyers requested the clarity hearing which took place on Friday, according to Brenda Brownlee, civil clerk for the Sault Ste. Marie Chippewa Tribal Court headquartered at Sault Ste. Marie, Mich.

Brownlee also confirmed the Schwartz's have appealed the judge's Aug. 20 order, including restitution. An appeal had to be filed within 30 days of the judgment. The paperwork was filed in tribal court on Sept. 16, she said.

The Honorable Chief Judge Jocelyn K. Fabry based restitution on the market value of the fish which the three men were found to be responsible for in the DNRE investigation during early 2009, said Conservation Officer Cpl. Shannon VanPatten.

VanPatten was the first to discover the illegal fishing after reviewing commercial fisheries records in the fall of 2008. She noticed an unusual high amount of walleye being sold in the wholesale commercial fish market over the winter months during past years. Records also showed an unexplained drop in angler harvests.

Following several hours of surveillance and information gathering, the DNRE seized 265 pounds of fish illegally harvested from Little Bay de Noc and 1,200 feet of gill nets in late February 2009. Officials estimated more than 72,000 pounds of walleye and other fish were illegally taken from the bay during a five-year period.

According to the tribal judgments handed down in August, the fines, costs and restitution against the Schwartz brothers must be paid to the court in monthly payments during the next five years. The first payment was due Oct. 1.

Andrew was ordered to pay $4,300 in fines and $800 in costs on 32 violations. John was ordered to pay $3,300 in fines and $550 in costs on 22 violations. Kevin was ordered to pay $3,600 in fines and $625 in costs on 22 violations.

In addition to the above citations, Andrew, John and Kevin were permanently revoked of their tribal subsistence fishing license for violating the following: subsistence fishermen shall be limited to 100 pounds of catch in possession; no tribal member shall allow a person without a subsistence fishing license to assist in any fishing activity; subsistence fishermen shall not sell or exchange for value any of the catch; and no subsistence fisherman shall set a gill net within 50 feet of another gill net.

According to the court judgement, Andrew was also found in violation of an additional section of the tribal fishing code: subsistence gill netting is limited to one net of 300 feet or less per vessel per day.

Property used to commit the violations and later seized during the investigation were four gills nets and four snowmobiles which remain in the possession of the tribal police, said Brownlee.

The Schwartz brothers were among six men charged with violations relating to the illegal fishing operations. Garden residents Troy and Wade Jensen, also tribal members, are wholesalers who allegedly bought the fish from the Schwartz brothers. Their case is being processed in tribal court. A non-Native from Delta County allegedly engaged in illegal fishing with the Schwartz's. The Delta County prosecutor continues to review this case.

Troy and Wade Jensen were arrested Friday in connection with an illegal commercial fishing operation dating back to 2006, added Brownlee. During a pretrial at the tribal center Friday, the two were charged with failing to comply with a recent tribal order increasing their court fees in the 2006 case. They will go to trial on the matter in December, according to Brownlee.

The Jensen's were arrested and lodged in the Schoolcraft County Jail on Friday, confirmed a jail official Tuesday morning. The charge was contempt of court for failing to pay fines and costs relating to the 2006 case when they were charged with commercial fishing without a commercial license. The Jensen's were in jail for nearly three hours before bond was posted and they were released, said the jail official.
