Was out yesterday. Made my way out to the deep trees. Most spots I fished had anywhere from 7-9 inches of solid ice under 3 inches of half frozen slush. I was breaking through the slush with almost every step.
I would guess that, that all froze solid over night. I would strongly suggest using spikes on your boots.
As far as fishing, I caught crappie pretty much all day. Kept 6 nice crappie and I did get into a few gills. I got one keeper a little over 8 inches.............F.P.??
