Really!!??? You people think someone asking about ice conditions is trolling??? Turds!
Go buy a spud bar and use it to check the ice as you go many times the ice is plenty safe to fish but instead you people sit on the couch and troll the internet. In most cases you are your best judge. Get out there and good luck

Just throwing in an observation on your posts about the schools of fish you are showing. A few years back while fishing Potters I had the same thing happen. I put on the smallest jigging Rapala (1in) in glow and added a wax worm on the treble. I ended up catching a limit of Crappies in under an hour. These fish would look at the small jigs an move on just as you described. But they would continually hit that waxwork on the treble without any issue. Give it a try- what do you have to lose? Let me know what happens.

This lake doesn't have a large population of bass in it anymore. There are some Quality fish in here though. A five pounder is not out of the question anytime you're on Potters. The downside unfortunately over the past couple years is that the lake has been treated for milfoil. When this happens it always affects the fishery. Like a lot of our other area lakes it has seen a decline in the fishing with the killing of the good weeds.
