i put in at cove about quarter past noon or so. it was nice. the vehicle traffic that has been there so far this year wasnt there today. parking was still pretty packed. i just started heading out toward spirit island going slow to see if i could mark any fish to see what depths...or a fishable school. it seemed like 21.5ft was the ticket. at 3 i released a 14" that would of been my fourth keeper. well, its the old saying, "one in the pan is better than two in the bush." i fished until about 7 and released a nice 20-1/2" & healthy 25". i never did get that 4th keeper... i just couldnt go back in after only fishing a little over 2 hours... the bugs were a nussance when there was no wind. but when the wind blew a little they went away. it blew from the south then switched to the north...still not much of one. i was using about a 9ft snell, red hook (that was gold when i quit...) and a chartreuse bead with a jumbo leech. i didnt try anything else because i was content catching what i did.

regards,

      I just checked the cedar Island Access there was about two-and-a-half to three inches of ice

      Took a drive around the lake today. The only open water I saw was in the middle out from Holiday Resort. Rest of the lake was covered with ice. When I got home I went out to check the ice thickness in front of my place. Went out about 5 feet from shore and chopped a hole with the spud bar. Measured 2 inches of ice with my measuring stick. Went out to about 15 feet from shore, chopped another hole and measured just a hair under 2 inches. Went out another 5 feet and brushed away the snow with my boot as I had done with the other holes. Hit the ice with the spud bar and all I could hear was cracking going off in every direction. Retreated to the shore. Going to give it a couple of days and check again. Hope we don't get that snow for Saturday night and Sunday.

      Yeah I thought if that. Just looking for other opinions.

      Check craigslist see if there are any boats like yours on there. If so how much are they asking.
