went out this weekend, went for 5 hours and caught 2 perch. it was really slow fishing out there.
Been out a few times, walleye bite has been decent averaging half dozen or so the couple hours I was out each time but honestly was spending more time playing with the lowrance for the first time on the ice. Lost a very nice northern jigging for walleye and iced a decent northern on a tip up...But again only been out just a few hours. Good luck

Any fish reports? I know there's been people out, just wondering how the bite has been. Might head up to my brother-in-laws who lives on the lake this weekend, will post a report if I do! Never hard water fished up here, summer fishing is great though!
I completely get where you're coming from.
I'll ice fish with water on top of the ice on lakes to a certain extent, but water on ice in a body of water with current is extra sketchy.
Hoping for a cold snap really soon!
I don't think it was an issue of the ice thickness per say but rather the amount of water ON the ice that kept me off, I know that dairyland can be kinda wet but I didn't care to ice fish from my boat...lol. I know that's an exaggeration but still.
As for the prediction of ice, unless we get a rather nasty cold snap or slip into another polar vortex I don't see any "safe" fishable ice til at least Christmas or later unfortunately... And this is one instance where I really hope I am wrong!!!
