Made a trip up yesterday to see how the lake was. Most places had anywhere from 12 to 16 inches. Did find 1 spot w around 10, but that was where some snow was piled up. I wanted to see the difference. 

Had a hard time finding gills in musky bay. We caught 2 northerns on tipups. We checked 3 spots and kept moving and ended up in the 15fow west of crescent next to everyone else. 

Caught 1 nice gill close to 10 and when I went to hold it out to show my buddy it flopped back down the hole. 

Otherwise a slow day of fishing, maybe these warmer temps will help next week.

Not much snow at all.  Tried 3 different spots today/tonight and only got a few small perch.  Talked to 2 other guys and pretty much same story.  I was west of crescent island in about 15 fow. Good luck.

Fished a few hours past dark the last two nights.  2 for 4 Sat night and skunked last night.  I didn't see any trucks out over the weekend, not thick enough for my piece of mind.  Sat. I had measured 10" with plenty of slushy spots that we're a bit thinner.  Temps were below zero all weekend with -15 last night. It's amazing how much the snow insulates the ice and how it keeps it from making more ice in these temps.  Tightlines

It is amazing how little reguard people have.   I am hearing 8" of ice on a lake in Florence smaller than Pelican. That isn't enough for me to drive my truck on.
