I was out there a couple weeks ago and there was a good foot of ice, there were plenty of cars out there.

We parked at Waterworks and walked out to the group of houses off to the left. There was a nice break there where is dropped from 5' out to about 16' and everyone was set up there.

We had 4 tips ups with suckers set at various depths, but got no flags. The guys next to us had tips ups out in 14-16' with smelt and got a 10lb northen and lost a bigger one at the hole.

jwhjr, if you check the board before you get out, check with JD - Josh fishes Centerville & she said they've had better luck in the little pond behind her house. She's home so I'm sure she'd let you wander back there!

Max - I got some advice from Josh over the weekend. We hit the lake from about 9:30 - 1:30 today and managed 5 crappies from 8-10" and a couple of small perch. 1 was caught on an Angel Eye spoon with a fathead, 3 on a small silver Swedish Pimple with a crappie minnow, and 1 on a orange ratso with a crappie minnow. We had no luck with wax worms or eurolarvae. There was a decent amount of activity on the lake with numerous vehicles driving around. There was 19" of ice in the spot we were, and the ice was making plenty of noise with all of the vehicle travel. My 10yr old daughter wanted to go ice fishing for her birthday, so it was a fun time to spend with her.

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
