Any report on the ice conditions on Bald Eagle. I assume you can drive all over with a 1/2 ton truck? Or is that a bad assumption?

I can answer my own question. Fished Bald Eagle this morning. There was at least 18in of ice. Caught lots of crappies. Size was small on average. Released most of them. But caught several larger than 10".

Yes, I found around 20" ice and several small crappies tonight, about 1 per hour. Biting VERY lightly though. No sign of walleyes. I am in a perm shack on the north east side of the island in 29 fow.

      The thumb nail method is tough for those that chew em!   I don't but know people who do.   I haven't used an official split ring pliers but a couple precision sizes have worked well.  This is a cheap set I like to have around.

      I use forage minnows and other types of jigging spoons also. Usually tipped with minnow head or waxies.

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4
