Was just going to check ice but saw a few others out..so i just dropped a minnow and a few spikes down a few holes..picked a few gills..average size. Only fished 3 hours..noon to 330pm. Ice was 3 inches to 5 inches and few others out there. Only talked to one. It was slow. East wind. Slight drizzle of rain. Was just nice to be out on some ice
