I was out on Forest New years day. Found 12 to 14 inches of ice where I was fishing. Is that enough ice for the contest??

I got my tickets, but a couple of buddies said they're going to wait and see.

What do you all think?

Was out checking the ice on Saturday. Found 13.5 to 15 inches in the contest area. With the cold weather predicted and over 4 weeks to go, I can pretty much guaranty we'll have more than enough ice. grin.gif

Don't forget! There's less than 2 weeks left to save $10 on each Fishapalooza event ticket. Buy them now to avoid the last minute rush.

      I have also worried about the quality of the bite...and the absence of perch. At least on the northwest side, anyways, where we almost never mark small perch anymore.  In years past, the best indicator of a soon-to-be big red mark on the Vex was that the small perch vacated the area.  I did see TONS of perch down on the south side this year, but I don't know how the numbers there compared to years past, either.   But yeah, the bite has been excellent for, what, three years now?  We're also catching a decent mix of fish (though of course most are from the 2013 year class).  The only good thing to mention, at least in my experience, is that the fish do look very healthy and fat, very unlike the fish during the "boom years" in the mid-2000's when everything you'd catch would be a skinny 26 incher.

      Bite has been non existent for us this weekend for pike...we fished out of springsteel yesterday one flag. We are out of warroad and no flags yet... We tried as shallow as 4ft, out in 11ft now.

      When I was a kid, I used to ask my dad to take me ice fishing--he would always say "wait 'till it gets warmer"......
