1. They pretty much have it on the same spot every year...

2. Keep your eye on what is coming to the scales.. If its a tough day fishing, then switching it up and going for some smaller catches can net you some prizes... otherwise, going for the big one is what its about.

3. Yep, bring the vex.. but it may be hard to use becuase eveybody else has as well.

just imagine a checker board. and a person on every square. then imagine what that looks like for a fish under the ice! I always wonder how fish are caught by anyone in the middle of the pack! imagine what they have to swim through to get at your bait!

      Jim you are still alive? Long time no see....   Truck went through on Buffalo last night I guess. Saw the pics on facebook looks like the dude drove right into open water good thing it was shallow. That fog was brutal that would be scary dropping in with that fog like that.

      Went out with a friend today. Looked like it was the month of March with the temp and water on the ice, and they bit like it was March as well! Ended up with 30 sunfish (7 1/2 to 9 in) 6 crappies and 2 perch! Was a lot of fun best bite I've had yet this year! If your going out I would advice to wear cleats espically when that water on top of the ice freezes.

      The DNR should post a sign telling those unfamiliar with the lake that driving out from the main public access is unsafe. I don't recall ever seeing anything like that over there.
