Ice is in good shape today, majority of water was gone. We fished on the 35' breakline and did pretty good and had our limit of whities by noon.
Talked to friends who tried deeper but didn't work out.
Dropped my eye glasses down the hole and kid asked me later why I wasn't furious. Told him being out there w/ him on his b-day made everything else irrelevant.
Good luck and have fun!
