We were there Saturday. It wasn't pretty. We took a sled from the landing and there was a lot of slush that we couldn't get to our spot we wanted to. We(4) caught 1-3lb northern and 1 perch. I saw 2 walleyes on the camera but even the perch didn't want to bite. There was about 6-7 inches of good ice and 3-5 of slush with snow on top. Water was coming up through the holes. First time I fished it.

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?

      Wow that ice went fast fished below the dam in Cold spring today. 3 feisty pike that was fun. Where the landing is there was about 20 feet of ice at the access. i was hoping to get the boat out but not yet. If anyone see's the ice go out by the landing let me know. Would like to get out however by Friday have heard any where from 1 inch to 20 so we will see.

        Do those 6" filet knifes work pretty good for pan fish?
