Was out the last few days. Got gills and couple Crappie on Tuesday. There was lots of water on the ice that day.
Wednesday.... I was out with my dad and the day started out slow but after a move it was game on. We got nice mix of big gills and Crappie. Still big puddles on the lake but not as bad as Tuesday.
Went back out today with a buddy of mine to really target the Crappie. We both had our limits before 2. We had 43 big Crappie and 7 big Gills. Most crappie were over 11 inches and the gills were around 9 inches.
Ice condition was actually a little better this morning. All the water on the ice had refroze over night last night. The shorelines for the most part were fine as well. Seen two separate ATVs traveling on the ice as well.
I would think the ice should be fine for the next couple days. My only concern would be where old AUGER holes might have got a bit bigger.
As always stay alert and be safe.......F.P.
