Yea I did. It was slow at first but then picked up around 4:30 to a little after 5.

The ice was about 7-8 inches and i was fishing in about 10-12 feet of water

You gotta start somewhere. The size of the fish don't matter, it is the excitement of pulling something out of a hole in the ice cool.gif

fishnhuntnboy,

You might want to try moving out a bit to the 15-20 the map showed, and keep a line in each depth to see if there is a difference.

They may fluctuate with time of day.

Don't take anyone to your spot.

Watch out for a guy named JustinG, he may try to pretend to be doing a fish census, and ask to fish by you. mad.gif

He is a sneaky one, & will use an alias!! grin.gifgrin.gif

BUT, he will give himself away when he pulls out his power auger and can't figure out why the motor is on the bottom and the blades are on the top! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

fishnhuntboy,

I haven't been out yet, but I've been hearing 6 inch averages. What lake(s) in the area are you thinking about? I can check some out this weekend.

We don't have as much snow on the ground/ice, so I'm hoping for more consistency than what you're seeing up there.

I find two things incredibly humorous with your post G.O.:

#1- the title of "Ice Leader" under your name. How on earth were you granted this title anyways?

#2- I am really surprised that you didn't send fishnhuntnboy out to locate my fish shack and drill holes sideways so he could fish under it! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

All kidding aside, cograts on your first fish there, fishnhuntnboy!

Well, I was invited to Green last weekend but couldn't go. The guy who went said there was maybe 4 inches out there with a good layer of snow on top. We might be out there this Sunday.

Coon had a couple people go through within the last two weeks I believe. But that always seems to happen out there. I would stay away from the channel(s) and don't take a sled or wheeler out.

I'll see if I can swing by Spec when we go to Green.

Either way, I'll post back here by the end of the weekend. Good luck on my favorite lake!

I was given the title "Ice Leader" because "Grand Fish Master" would have been embarrassing, due to my excessive modesty! smirk.gif

I didn't send fishnhuntnboy to locate your fish house and drill holes by it, because last time I saw, it was sitting on top of a rock.

Did you ever wonder why your blades keep getting dull and you never hit any water? grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

      Yeah next week looks good for getting out. Hopefully the snow totals stay on the low side but at least its gonna be the light powder variety.

      3" on west hunter in Zimmerman 15yds from shore.  Lakes talking a lot today. Keep in mind the lake is only 8' deep   A dozen trucks/cars at Baxter last evening when I drove by

      Thanks for the update.  Good news!!     Be safe everyone!

      Thanks guys.  So just to recap so far, Nils and KDrill require adapters, which add $30 or so, but you can use them w/out the drill plate if you want to.  How about Strikemasters do they need an adapter?     Also, just wondering if there is any legit reason to pay $100 more for the K Drill over the Nils?  Seems to me they are about the same weight (ballpark) and both cut pretty fast.     Thanks again for the info fellas!!
