Another great day on the chian :D . Got on the ice at 6am and fished till noon. Caught alot of whites. Stopped until the 5 galloner with tipped. Small spoons and jigs tipped with waxies or spike.

JB the channels look pretty bad as I saw some open water. The shore was wet but once you get on the ice you'll be fine. 5-7" ice depth and getting thicker.

Legend...nice catch ya got there. I do appreciate the feedback. It takes me over an hour to get up there so taking a drive to "iffy" ice is not my idea of time well spent. Looks as tho you made the effort and were rewarded with a nice collection.
I called Triangle this morning and I asked how the ice was up there and the guy said that they didn't get the rain that we did in the south. I asked how the ice was and he said it should be good. When he said should, it kind of made me a bit nervous on going up. So I didn't go this morning. I'm gonna give it another day and probably go tomorrow.

I just don't wanna walk on the edges of the channel and break thru even tho I would only be in a couple of feet of water it makes me a bit nervous. Maybe tomorrow will prove to be a bit more courageous for me. I'll let ya know.

Looks like there was snow on the ice you were fishing. Was there any open water around the edges getting out to that ice?

I gotta admit I'm worn out after cleaning half dozen. I get about 2 meals with that as long as the panfish are sizeable.
