I have noticed that houses have started to go out there but was wondering if the were spearing or if the crappies are bitting any help would be great

just guess how deep the water is where the houses are with a map. if less than 8 ft, they are maybe spearing. any deeper, they are probably fishing with a rod/reel or jig stick. also, by now with the belle post you had, people will not tell you exactly what/when/where to fish. if you think ripley is worth a shot, go out and fish it for a day trying different depths and you may get rewarded. the worst thing to do when ice fishing is to go by the groups of houses. by the time you are fishing by a group, they fish they may have been catching are probably not there anymore.

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
