I took the kids out in the boat on Saturday. We launched from the channel. Lake was still 90% frozen, but there was a couple hundred yards of open water. We caught nothing and saw no fish, but we did see muskrats, ducks and geese. Fun to get out.

Stopped at public landing yesterday. Open water 3-5 feet all along shoreline. Hard to believe two weeks ago I was fishing with solid 12 inch plus of ice. I have never fished when I could not just walk to the ice slab...

Yes there is, but there's really not much space to drive a boat around yet.

I was out today with my dad and two friends out for the last ice of this year in search for some spawning bluegills and pumpkin seeds. None of us were able to fill our limit but left with at least 6 or 7 each. Ice depths were decent but spongy. On the way out open water was at the launch of Sportsmans. We were able to make it across but after a long day we headed in and came across more water than the earlier morning. Had some wind difficulty overall a good day. Big Smile

Shouldn't be long, it's degrading quickly. I drilled about a dozen holes this morning - ice thickness was variable. Was working the 12-ish foot area strait out from Sportsman's. In one spot I found about 18", 12 to 14 everywhere else. Big flock of birds up towards the channel, I think that's usually a sign of open water. There was a few inches of slush at Sportsman's, nothing too treacherous. Lost one nice crappie at the hole, best day out there this week...

Deep jigging.....that's what I hope be doing tonight...gigity! Was out every weekend. Crappies have been slow. Sportsmans is where they still try. Couple years ago we caught them there. By end of next week they'll be close to spawning grounds. I have caught them here in 2 ft of water to 20. On the bottom and right under the ice. Fun hunting them. Funner catching

Do you use a smart phone gray fox? My son and I are going to do some deep jigging tomorrow, finding it is easy with the map app from Navionics.
