What about enjoying your time out on the ice and having fun? Too many people are so caught up in "filling the freezer" and "my limit" instead of fishing because it's fun. If your worried about the meat...just go to the market and buy fish...its way less expensive. I'd much rather catch a lot of fish for fun and release them all vs catch a few just so I can get "My limit".
Catman, just ask all the guys that have been limiting out every night! You can see where they are fishing practically every night. I'd love to see those freezers! It's really been hit and miss for us, just gotta be where the fish wanna swim that night. Good luck!

A truck dropped through last night up by the hickory point landing. Nothing serious as he was right by the landing, but a word of caution to everyone thats out there. The ice isnt as safe as most people think. Fishing has slowed down quite a bit too.

It don't matter on what size shinners you use. Keep it about a foot or less from bottom. I went out tonight had 5 flags caught 3 walleye all were 15inches or so. healthy looking fish. Cannot complain on not getting any bites. Had plenty of bites jigging for them but missed the ones when jigging for them.
