I was out pheasant hunting on a big slough on Sunday and the weight of the snow was forcing water onto the ice, in a couple of spots I walked thru 2-3 inches of slush on top of the ice. Kind of a bung hole tightener!!!

Went to Wagonga last night. Fished on 8" of ice, and wasn't too worried about going swimming.

All I have to say about pulling the portable through the drifts is "Amen, brother!" Fortunately, the snow was pretty well frozen on top.

      there is a mess being created out there ladies and gentleman. Be careful. Slush is sneaky. It looks like March out on the ice, not January. Deep slush and standing water, tricky conditions for vehicles and people. Saw a lot of flooded houses today in four mile bay.    Fishing for our group was the same as it's been all season. So Slow It Hurts.   But it sure was fun to be able to fish outside.    On a side note, I picked up nearly a dozen boards left behind from wheelhouses. With all this water and slushy conditions, I agree boards are needed. Just please take them with you or chisel them out. These things can cause a lot of damage to some expensive equipment come open water....

      I feel like every time I ice fish in the rain the fish are going nuts...Went out today on a lake in the Duluth area and just pounded the crappies and gills(100+fish)..All the gills were 8-9" and the crappies were 10-12"... Best bait was a glow majum jig with a glow plastic...
