I am not sure of ice thickness, but drove to the boat launch a couple hours ago, and noted a couple fishermen had walked out and had lines in the water. No snow on the lake at all..... will be trying tomorrow afternoon and post results.

I was out at Minnie on Sunday, 10 inches clear ice is what I found where ever I drilled. I managed to ice 1 10" crappie and missed quite a few others. The flasher was lit up pretty much all day, when it began to die off I moved 30 feet and was right back on them. Typical day at Minnie! :D

I normally fish there starting around the end of February/ begining of March, I've find around that time of year to be the most productive for hardwater. Have yet to wear the stripes, unlike a certain "local" I know :lol:
