Try going out on budd behind the water filtration plant.Go from the north side of the building out in 18 foot.Tons of crappies out there and wallys show up as well.I seldom ice fish hall because of all the traffic.Stick with it out there and sooner or later you will be rewarded out there.Watch for an eskimo lodge portable and that will be me.Good Luck

Be careful on George! A big hole opened up today. I don't know how but I am guessing the wind had something to do with it.

That hole is from the ducks and geese.They have kept it open all winter.

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      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
