Fished from 830-1030 at the camp ground cribs. Got one dinky Gill. Heard the guy next to me talk about the dinky crappie. Seems like a common theme this year... I got 2  potato chips last weekend... anyone else getting dinks?

Went out on the 6th. About a foot of ice on the north side of lake. Didn't catch anything, but fun nonetheless.

I fished Saturday 11/30 and Monday 1/1 for a few hours each day. 

On Monday I did fish the trees near the entrance to the NMZ and the ice was safe. I am always checking with a Spud bar as I go especially near the trees.  There were fish in this area. Getting them to bite was a different story. I also walked out to the deep trees area and found other fish to ignore my jig but the ice was safe. 

I am fairly new to ice fishing so you may have more luck. I tried various small jigs/spoons tipped with waxworms and/or plastics. I could see fish on my flasher interested in the baits but no takers. 

It was great to get out both days. Cold and windy but sunny. I put  my back to the wind and I was not cold. I might have been to only angler on the lake without some sort of shelter.
