Just wanted to tell ya what was up for the day.

Got about 8 crappies kept 2 also got hold of a couple big white bass, we kept one never fried one up but we will see if its any good?

Also had 1 small walleye tossed the little guy back in, had a couple other big bites but did not get them out the hole.

Ice was about 15" where we were at full size trucks driving around.

Bite was kind of slow we were there from 2:00-6:00 had fun anyway, looks like lots of people did.

This is probly not news to anyone but I thought I would throw it out there!!

Happy new year!!!!!!!!!!!!

we were out on 12-31 from about 7:30 am til 1 pm. Pretty slow tried deeper water, moved shallo, and went deeper again. Lots of lookers, not a lot of takers.

Be very careful on this lake, I was out last night looking for structure and came across 4"-5" of ice under a drift.This area is not safe for vehicle travel.The area in question is north and west of the hwy 21 access, not many houses in that area.............be very very careful!!

I caught this one out there about 4 years ago. Put it back just after this picture was taken to hopefully make more stripers. Sounds like it worked.

I can tell ya where I was when I caught that striper(in the pic above), even tho' it was a while ago. The spot is still a good one for crappies also(that was what I was after that day.) It would be best to be looking at a lake map with these directions .

Across the lake form the Hwy 29 landing is a small "bay" (North), to the left(West) is a "point" , go around the point to the North up shore line to the third house(on land, I'm guessing a couple hundred yds.) Straight West from that house , out approx 75-100 yds. there is a sloping bottom heading west, with weeds. I was fishing in 24-28 ft. water. [That's the general area, you'll obviously have to search around.] Note: I fished there this summer & was catching wallies. Small, C&Red them, but it was action. I have fished this spot over the years & have had good luck there for crappies, gills & wallies. oh & a striper too ;\) There are a lot of other good spots on the lake, (I'm not gonna tell them all, obviously) but this spot has worked for me both summer & winter. It should get ya started.

Now ya need ta let me know if ya have any action. ;\)grin.gif

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later

      Lets say you have 1.5 ah batteries now and you drilled one and a half holes per battery. Unless that ice was 50' thick, have dull blades and your auger is 8, or bigger that's not a drill you want to put more money into.  So give us some info on your auger and how many in lbs of torque is your drill?
