Started at the point on the WI side just south of 94 where there is a big "private beach" sign and a little tiki bar looking thing. Caught 1 decent walleye on cranks here. Then fished the humps out in front of beach on the WI side between 94 and catfish bar. Pulled in 1 keeper eye and a few drum using bottom bouncers and crawler harnesses in 20-25' water.

Made it down past the kini to the flats in front of the state park launch around 11ish. Pulled in 4 saugers, a bunch of spotted catfish(? is that what they are called??), and a few more drum on the same rig in about 22-24' water. Also managed to get 4 decent bluegills that we kept.

Anyone else have any luck?

I hit the river early as usual and I was off by 9, started infront of the buffs park picked up two eaters before sun up and added one more around 7ish, caught a mix bag also heavy on the cat side, worked my way back down towards steamboat caught one really nice smallie but couldn't seem to find any eyes after 8 but there's always tomorrow, I'm planning on being on the water early again in the morning

Fog so thick you can cut it with a knife, thank God for gps else it would've been tough to go any place. It was so so did manage to get one dandy eye which I released (24 1/2) and a few smallies no sheeps today, left the river by 9:30 red lund

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
