I took this pic on rocky reef this afternoon. I was watching this guy drive off the plowed road about 300 yards. I was gonna go over and offer a tow but another crack opened up 50ft behind him. Luckly he found a tow service that was willing to come out on the ice..

Yes everybody needs to stay on the roads . We were out by Shermans and went of the road and fell into a hole were a perm. used to be luckily we had a strap and somebody offered to help get us out. So if youre out their be careful becuase its a major drop. and even worse we caught perch two weeks ago but this trip didnt catch hardly any. Good luck to everyone but be careful.

DrillinHolz, were you the guy we talked to when we were leaving the ice yesterday.Thats my sled in the picture.Did they get out ok,he said his son in law was coming to try and pull him out and I didn't think that was going to work he was resting on the frame,I think a tow truck was his only option.Hope you did better than we did.We are planning another trip in 2 weeks if the ice holds.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!
