Sorry guys for the late report. My lab top crashed over the weekend. Fished from 3am -10am. Fishing was very slow out there. Between the 6 of us we had about 18 tip ups using lagre roaches. We went 2 for 3 with two small snakes around 20-23 inches. Tried for some pan fish first light with no luck just got alot of sniffers. I think the NE winds had a big role in it. The ice was a good solid 7" inches by shore but as you go further out it got thinner. There was a couple of times I found myself drilling in 1" of ice. Scary
but all in all we had a great time out there. Beer, food, some fire wood
and a great bunch of friends what else can you ask to start the season out.
