Got out from 2-5 yesterday. Most of the ice that wasnt shaded was solid clear/black ice around 3-4 inches...which is fine but i found myself walking across an iceberg when i got close to a little island (not a good feeling)...honestly it felt good to be able to drill a hole without having to take a breather halfway through but i was feeling extra cautious, was alone, and without my life vest (*doh)...i had hell trying to ice skate across from hole to hole as every little frozen ridge shot my feet back and forth. (I did have both legs fly out from under me once). Those shaded areas up in the coves still had 6-8+ inches of ice. Anyways i only caught one bluegill right at 5 o clock and id like to thank that was when they were going to be turning on.but i think the fishing is just tough period. Low oxygen.? Idk. I still have a packed freezer so no.complaints on this season :)
