First time ice fishing Gibbs today. Ice is very thick. A full sized chevy truck was brave enough to come out across the lake. I got skunked fishing minnows. Anyone got any advice? Send me a PM.

Went out to Gibb's this morning...slow bite. Was able sift through the small ones and kept 8 7" gills. Also caught a few 6" perch and a small crappie. Nothing on my tip ups. Decent day, a lot of people out there.

Ice depth now 4 - 4.5 inches and slippery.

Out from 8 - Noon. 2 fishermen. No fish. Tip ups out and jig fishing. Marked some fish in weeds tight to the bottom in 8' of water. Otherwise drilled 30+ holes in 10' - 22' depths and did not mark a fish. One of those days.

Seeing no other summer time posts, here is a brief update:

Better sized pan fish are suspended in 18' - 23' feet of water in center of lake. Most 6-12 feet down. Drifting with weighed worm / chunk of crawler on small hook or jig is successful. Bluegills are about 6" -7". 

Photo of two persons catch in 4 hours.
