I went out this past weekend with some friends even with the slush. Immediately after we arrived we had to pat down an area with snow so you could set up base camp. The fishing was the fastest surprisingly in the middle of the day for perch and a few walleyes. We caught a few walleyes at night as well, but it was slow at night and in the morning. Most walleyes were between 10 - 14 inches and the perch were between 3 - 11 inches. A few Bluegills were also added into it. I created a video of the trip for you guys to see if anyone was interested.

We fished yesterday afternoon through today. 12" of ice.  A couple of 10" walleye and 10" perch on tip ups at 4:30 in 10'-15'.  Perch jigging and on tip downs in 16'-20' today.

We drove on in a F-350.  Plenty of pick ups and shacks on the ice.

butternut is a tough lake to panfish. if anything i would try for perch with crappie minnows in about 20 fow. tip downs or tip ups set with light line would probably be your best bet. otherwise go to kentuck lake. find the sunken boulders and rocks (should appear on any lake map), and fish with crappie minnows for crappies.
