Went out and as we walked out toward the middle the ice cracked with each step. My dad who is about 240 was cracking quite a bit so we decided not to risk it. This rain coming won’t help. Be carful out there.

Was out from 7:45 - 11:30 am on Sunday 12/16. Checked ice all over the lake, about 4.5 inches everywhere. Set up a couple tip ups in ~17ft, didn't get anything. Tried jigging in many different spots, no bites. Marked plenty of fish, which seemed to all stay towards the bottom. Only a handful of people out, didn't look like anybody had luck.

4.5 inches of ice. Marked relatively few fish.

Those found were tight to the bottom and difficult to get to bite.

Might be a waste of time calling dnr.Your call will be answered by a recording,you leave the info.30 minutes later you get a text saying they got your message and will relay the info to a warden.You might get a call back in an hour or so asking details.They will say that unless these people are caught red handed there is not much they can do.Not wardens fault,they are very short handed with maybe 2 or 3 wardens per district and they can not be every where.Try to get pictures of the people and a plate number.They cannot issue citations but can put the ass wipes on notice.It is better to get the wardens cell # and text info and pics directly to them.They will respond much faster when you eliminate the middleman.

been out the last 2 weekends and it seems the fish have all went on vacation, very small gills and crappie and not a single flag i think they may need to make this a catch and release lake soon ? seen 3 guys yesterday with undersize northern and bass taking them home. this could be part of the problem?

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.
