Finally got on the ice today. Fished from 2:30 - 8:00 on north side and set up in 15fow. Used a red teardrop tipped w/2 spikes on jigging rod and #6 aberdeen with small minnow on dead stick. Caught some gills on jig .Size range from 4" to 8 1/2".As soon as sun started to fade the dead stick was on fire. Crappies were hitting.Pulling minnow off bottom they would hit it about 2 to 3 ft. up. Caught over 30 and missed many more. Kept 2 gills over 8" and 3 crops over 10". On a side note. Stopped at police station and got my permit. I just got set up when officer came by to check licence and permit.Thanked me for buying permit and told me 100% of permit fee,s will go toward restocking. He told me that they have had problems with people keeping every fish they keep. Hope this would cut down on the poaching. Tight Lines Jim

Just making sure the emergency responders are staying on their game.

Why on earth would a guy be using a wheeler on this ice? I could see if it was thicker. But this ice? Just making it more dangerous for those that walk out and walk off. Common sense must be dead.

Got into a bunch of Gills all day.  Missed a very nice Pike on a tip up with a smelt.  Saw him cruise through on the camera seconds before the flag.  Fish seemed staggered in water column best bite was several feet off the bottom making the fish come up.  White ice jig worked best today.  The ice was singing early on.  Boy, that sound never gets old.  No bananas!

Sean/FRR: Thanks for the heads up on the "shanty tax".  It's good to know. Absolutely ridiculous, but good to know before getting hit with a fine.  I usually fish Bangs several times a season.  I also usually buy food, gas, and bait while I am in Wauconda.  No more.  There are lots of other good places around.  Thanks again for raising awareness of this nonsense.

I don't fish bangs much anyway but even less now. I hope this doesn't set a precident around the area. I also hope someone with common sense is going to watch these funds...
