Hey guys, went out in about 10' of water tonight for a couple hours. Didn't get anything using a red shrimpo, but saw a ton of fish on the flasher that would rise to the bait, but not to take it. I couldn't get out to 14' like I wanted to, because I was a little skittish of some slush ice that I broke through, with liquid water underneath (but another layer of ice under that, never seen that before!)

It was pretty hard to say, because of all the snow/slush ice. I'd say anywhere from 4-6 inches, but I didn't check, sorry! There was one permanant out about 50 yards from shore, but that was the biggest thing on the ice. Has anyone seen my description of thin ice then liquid water underneath, followed by hard ice before? That really freaked me out, lol!

I was out last Sunday and there was around 5-6 past the point from the boat launch. I will say that it is pretty weird that there is a layer of slush under the ice. It made me a little nervous myself. I am probably going to venture out to the middle to see how the bite is. The bite was pretty slow where i was fishing but still managed a nice size bass and a 12 inch walleye, my 2 buddies didn't even get a bite. Anyone else have any luck?

        Oh, says the guy that just took the plunge! I'm sure it will do your little pan fish ok. Let me know if you need a few Walleye's to try?

      I had a battery op Repala a few years ago and sold it to someone else at our campground. Didn't like the way they just zipped through without following the fillets and lost a lot of meat. Really suk's on a partly frozen fish!   Mine came with a case.
