Big Point, 3 mile, Lakeside, Fischers, Agate Bay, and then the mud. Alot is going to depend on how far you can drive , or if you have a sled of 4 wheeler.

bringing 4-wheeler, so if we do decide to venture to the west part of the lake and good islands or points to fish at and how thick is the ice, how deep to fish, what kind of jigs and colers to use. that kind of help would be very nice for a new person on that lake

The 4 wheeler will help. I would get out in the deep water, or reef edges. Use Northland Eye dropper jig- orange. Glow jigs probably 1/8 oz. down to 1/16. (chart/glow, orange/glow, black/glow) Jigging raps, sweedish pimples with minnow heads when jigging these types of lures.

You could always use a plain red or glow hook with a minnow under a bobber also if fishing inside a house.

Weather permitting I would put a tip up out with larger minnows- maybe suckers 5-9 " (for a shot at a Pig) or larger shiners (4-7").

You could otherwise get by with rainbows or smaller shiners 3-5"

Good luck and Post your results.

      Buddy and I went out yesterday around noon. Fished for a few hours was a little windy but not to bad. Only got a small largemouth and one decent gill. Only fished for 2-3 hours tried all over the small lake we were on. Ooh well still nice to finnaly get out. Planning on taking the yak out on opener do a bass/pike/ walleye trip so exited for that. Few nice gills you got there rick!

      Any reports? I know there was a lot of people out there. The boomsite access was already 3/4 full when I drove by at 5 AM. I'm thinking about going out of blufflands park on Friday.

      Kinda cold and windy yesterday. Fish really didn't seem to mind though. Finding ggod sized fish was the goal for the afternoon. Started off in a feeding bay that has a section of deeper water in it. This deeper water is where I found all my fish. Crappies were holding tight to the weed cover around the hole, while gills were closer to the surface. It wasn't fast fishing by any means, still I managed to find some real quality pannies

      I have two Vexilar transducers.    1) Thru hull/trolling motor- used.  From FL8 2) New never used, high speed.       I looked on Vexilar's site, The one's they sell say FL8 or FL18.  Checked FAQ and they look like they are interchangeable with other models???  Can text pictures-what do you have?
