Had a buddy come out yesterday from Winnipeg, Mb.and another buddy from town and myself went out in search of some crappies. We walked out on the ice a couple of hundred yds from shore.Lots of water under a blanket of snow.Took two seconds to drill through 4-5 " of ice, would have thought there would have been more ice. Kinda spooky.first fish caught was a 25" walleye.bonus fish.lol.caught some more walleye and some pike and perch but no crappies. No matter ended up up being a nice first day on the ice.
