Not your truck it isn't. You'll be stuck in the sloppy mess. I would bring out the wheeler or your bros sled.

pretty soon you'll need to bring your boat to get out anywhere... I was out on a lake last night and I had to jump to the ice because it was only 2 inches thick by shore.. once I got out there it was fine.. I also found a hole where the water was draining into and it was 2 feet by 3 feet wide all the way down... wouldn't like to run into that in the dark....

No I caught one but its a start I was fishing in the wrong spot.when I pulled on on sat there was about 8 people fishing in the spot I wanted to go to so I found my own spot that didn't work that good so this time I don't care if I fish in a crowd I talked to them later in the day and they had done OK but the said last weekend was a little early for them.It sould be full swing this week end most likly be the last with this weather dam it's nice out

In the tulibee world, it's the more the better. They're roaming fish, and sometimes the more hooks the better. You'll not meet a more friendly bunch than those who get up at 3, get on the ice by 4, and sit til 10. (not are all that committed!) Introduce yourself, and have fun!! Might see you there someday, not tomorrow!! Brent

      Wow was it a foggy son of a gun yesterday. In a week or so the hard pack is melted down and there is a lot of slush out there. The roads turned into shallow rivers but there is still a solid block of ice in between the layers of water!  Lots of folks out there yesterday, it was hard to tell until the fog lifted. We fished in 15' of water next to a little bowl of 32' of water and it started out pretty slow. We had three 8 year old girls and they ended up making snowmen for the first hour lol.    About 4 o'clock we caught our first perch, it was a flurry after that until dark. Quite a bit of sorting to do but we kept a dozen and a half in the 9 to 10" range. We caught a few in the 11" range too.

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.
