Eskimo44, you can park at Chopper's Bar for $5.  They will give you a receipt/ticket to place on your dashboard.  After fishing, they will credit your $5 if you purchase food, or beverages.  Good chili there and it hits the spot after being on the ice.

Anyone going out in the A.M?  Cant say I've fished this in the past and looking for someone or a group to go with.  Waiting for my new auger blades to come in but hoping old ones will work ok.  

Open to other spot if anyone knows a good spot. Been itching to get on the ice.

MOON PHASE
First Quarter

ICE DEPTH
4 inches

Solid 4" of clear ice. Mixed bag of stripers and dink perch. No gills.  Color doesn't seem to matter. Green, yellow, orange and pink all catching fish. Very light bite.  Roughly equal numbers on spikes and waxies.  Getting 2 or 3 when a school moves through then wait 10 or 15 min for next school. Not a lot of action. Most guys moving on after a half hour or so.
