Went ice fishing yesterday. Ice on the west side of lake by the dam/bridge was 2 to 4 inches. However, as I walked further from shore, ice depth was only 1 to 2 inches. Ice on east side of like was under 1 inch and couldn't support any weight. I drilled 12 holes and caught 2 bass. Larger of the 2 bass was only 9 inches. I would caution anyone going on the ice to use extreme caution. Ice depth changes quickly so make sure to measure ice frequently.

How big are the Gills in Dawson these days? I used to catch quite a few around 8.5 to 9 inches over 10 years ago.
