5 - 12" of ice scattered throughout the lake.

Yes, the 'eyes are biting on tip-ups or Buckshot spoons.

was out there this saturday. i found aboout 12 inches all over but I did talk to some people who hit a few slush spots and they noted about 8 inches in those. there are some good sized perms out there and I saw one fool drive all the way across the lake from beaver dam to the island. I think were a good couple of cold days from driving myself but others have done it. fishing was slow managed a couple northerns one about 4 pounds one the pannie rod boy was that a battle and one one a tipup that went about 6 or 7 both are still swimming. marked a lot of fish from 12 to 20 fow but couldn't get them convinced to eat. fished from beaver dam all the way to the island. wasn't able to fish the primetime but I did talk to a friend who tried the deep water 30 fow and said the same. lots of fish on the screen but nothing cooperating. I tried about every bait imaginable and the fish would come up amd look at it then leave. little early in my opinion. good luck if you go

      Those are quantom blades in that picture and they work great for reopening holes and I never had a problem with it being bad for the blades in fact that ring around the bit on the bottom is to help guide the blade when going through a preexisting hole

      Mine looks like that.  And it does reopen holes, and is sharp.  But, had read in past it was not good for the blade.  A friend indeed has attached a 10" Strikemaster, dual blade to his Eskimo so it does work.  His impressively cuts holes quickly, at angles, etc.  He spears so he does 5 holes side by side , 3 holes deep, then augers side ways to remove in between.  Works well.  Complete hole done, less scooping, in under 10 minutes.   Thanks for all the advice.  Could use something larger than 8" anyway, so may go to 10.  Also will redo back part by toy hauler door, under bunks to a 20" x 5' hole, covered and hinged of course.  May spear, but even if not I love watching the fish and various movements of bait, etc.   Again, thanks for being generous. Wahoo
