Question for you regulars out there. What's the best/safest way of getting out on the marsh? Never been out there ice fishing. Might try one last time this weekend before I get the boat ready.
I took my shack off of Bartels last night. I spent all day yesterday hoping that the open fishings holes under were not flushing down. They were. 8 inch hole expanded t about 10". There was still tons of ice but I pulled my shack off because I was more concerned about the shoreline breaking up and the 4 holes under my shack growing. This was at 9 pm last night. Bartels beach was still in good shape at that time.

Well that' a rap on my hard water season shed hunting next weekend. Went back out after those crappie but no dice. Did run across a bakers dozen of gills tho. Red and white spike combo was the ticket today. Fished from noon till dark in 2 fathoms of water good luck and tight lines

Fished from noon till dark. Pretty slow. Marked alot of fish would come look and leave. But 1 on 7 or 8 would bite. Proffered spikes or waxes. Iced 3 nice crappie biggest was 13 and 3/4 along with some nice gills. Hax 2 tip ups out also got about 10 snakes.
