and an after thought...........even with 6-7 inches there could still be some thinner ice yet. i usually dont venture out deeper then 10 ft early but now that i've gotten older and wiser i need to use a sled or wheeler nowadays and i way prefer about 8-10 inches of ice........but thats just me!!!!!!👍
Went ice fishing with riverrat316 and I laid the smack down on some big gills!! Thanks to kichler custom rods for the beautiful rod and Slab baits for the 1 inch pink and white zipper minnows as they worked so great. The zipper minnows held up to the abuse of big gils munching on them really well!!
