arrrrrrrgh. yeah that catch happened last year. got there a couple hours later and luke was still smiling from ear to ear for the rest of the day (probably still is).

independence has been very so so this year between being shut down most of the ice season due to unsafe ice and baitfish taking forever to move into the bay it def is having somewhat of an off year compared to last year.
odds are your catch was someones release...pay it forward

They need to open up the whole lake to ice fishing. Kinda lame you can only ice fish the small marina. I've seen some monsters pulled out of the open water by trollers over the years.

Ice is too iffy with the spring they have causing ice to weaken. However if they could somehow shut it all down then I am sure the ice would be safe all around. I mean some shore line areas are very thick.
