Forgot to mention, water temp 12" off bottom was a bit over 37deg. A bit on the chilly side. Could explain the soft bite. Also, tons of bubbles coming up from the bottom. Guessing methane or CO2 ?

Fished from 12:30 until dark. Few decent crappie and perch. Jigs with a waxie and spike. Fish would all follow jig up 2'-4' before hitting. Very soft bite. 16" minimum of good hard ice everywhere we checked. Drilled over 50 holes to find fish.

Guys at work finally talked me into going ice fishing , have to say I really had a fun time didn't bring home anything but in my experience you don't always have to bring fish home , the only bad thing was driving out in the lake the ice cracking had me nervous but was told that's normal .
Good morning all,
I am looking to get on by the Boat House and drive to the government to fish tomorrow evening and I am curious if there are any spots I should avoid driving through. I just want to be safe. Thank you in advance for any advice.
