how deep are you fishing? last time I fished miltona I fished in 18 feet and they would bite from sunrise until about 9am and then it would start up again at about 3pm. I never try deeper during the day I usually just go in and come back out for prime time.

Anyone been fishing in the group of houses to the East of sandy beach access at the end of the plowed road?

They must be catching some panfish being that it looks like it is only around 6 feet in that area.

any size to the fish you are catching? Last time I was there it was about 1 keeper for every 10 fish you catch, but those little farts sure kept me busy. If those little guys make it a couple more years we will have some darn good fishing on miltona.

      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

      Lets say you have 1.5 ah batteries now and you drilled one and a half holes per battery. Unless that ice was 50' thick, have dull blades and your auger is 8, or bigger that's not a drill you want to put more money into.  So give us some info on your auger and how many in lbs of torque is your drill?
