Shorthair,
I was gone this weekend so I'm not sure what folks did. I don know most the fishing will be at the Ash River narrows, just East of there, or accross the open ice at the mouth of Lost Lake. You will know where to fish by the other folks or where the houses are set up.

Best bait still seems to be minnows, chubs, rainbows or if you have a way to keep the shiners in a consistent water temp, they wrk well to.

You will need small jigs, #4 or #6 hooks, glo jigs, angel eyes, marmooskas, rattle spoons and etc. They eyes will probably be in 28-35' deep water. Make sure your auger has an extension or bring a chisel. Night before -32 expect same tonight, lots of ice, near 36" could be more in some isolated places. No extensions to be found up this way.
Good luck, guts <}}}}}}><

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.

      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.

         Couple from prospecting some virgin ice, not a hole in site. Mission accomplished!         .....

      Just got off the ice and there were several cars driving around.  We ended up with 1-2 inches. We found a few willing cats today.   Enough to get a head start for the fish fry.  Keep posted as we did not find much for cats in the methhole area.
