this is not a report I don't know what side of the argument I want here but I assume you drilled your tip up holes in the middle of a lot of old holes ,or a spot regarded as a good jigging area, for panfish in that case your asking for someone to drill in your spread ,,but if you were on virgin ice your right it ain't right to drill on your spread I been on bought sides of this more than once...... just suck it up , truth is have found the more people moving around my flags the more flags I get I think they get the northern moving around so ain't no reason to get upset not that I don't or have not tight lines...

Went out Tuesday (26 Dec) and played in the cold. I was second one on the lake and fished til 11. Set 3 tip ups out while I re-rigged my jig poles up. As I’m tying a jig on, I watch a guy come inside my spread and started drilling holes. 2-3 feet from my tip ups. He drilled 6-7 holes and started jiging. Not saying I own the lake or anything but have a little courtesy. I pulled a tip up and started jiging. Had one light bite but that was it. 2 flags and landed one mid 20” pike. Measured one hole I drilled when I pulled tip ups out and it had 8” of ice.
