Yeah your right. The ice is probably softer than the couch your fishing on.

OH Buckshot.... Turn the spud bar around and use the sharp end. It will take less blows!

I wonder what all this rain will do to the ice. In the long run, probably a good thing, but for this weekend, it might end our planned trip...

I went out in the country today for a ride and noticed alot of open water and a few small bodies of water with what looked like thin black ice. Then I notice a guy out on a 75 acre pond of black as coal ice with water along the whole shore for several feet out. Is it really worth a couple of bluegills or whatever hes fishing for to drown? I took a pic of him and the ice but left the camera in my truck but will post it later to see what most of you think..I think he is nuts, just my opinion.

6 of us fished all day on the north end of the Rainbow Flowage... 11 flags produced 7 small northerns and largest was 22"... 4 undersized eyes while jigging and 10 perch 8-9 1/2".... We saw 28 portables on the north half of the Flowage and a snowmobiler said there were another 30 or so on the south half. We fished right in the river channel and current was almost nonexistant. Some wet/questionable areas still visible so be careful..saw quads and snowmobile traffic on occasion all day...
