Fished north triangle for first time ever. Ice was 8" to 11" where I fished and drilled by hand. Ice was still flaky. Completely different than the the bay ice. Three guys on the bay. I counted over forty on the triangle at about 11:30 am. Left at 12:45 pm.
There were planks down but were actually frozen into the ice. You didn't need planks to enter this morning. Have no idea about this afternoon. Fully confident in ice conditions and will be out again tomorrow. You can get on the bay but you really need high boots or waders. Ice looked a little more sketchy on the bay as well.
Caught some gills and small perch. Will be putting a lot more time in tomorrow. Will be my last time. Highs in the fifties to end next week. Open water next weekend? Rat.
