Went up this morning with my bro.
Took the sled and right as i went to go down the ramp i stopped. Guy at the store said I probably would not want to do that as it has only been frozen for a few days. Thanks fir the tip man.
I proceeded around the edge and checked the ice depth on the east side of the cabins and where it gets smooth, newly frozen, it is only about 2 inches. Hopefully no snow and more cold temps will have it ready by the first of next week. As I was leaving though I saw a couple guys out on that. Man they are asking for it. Guys be careful.
I went to next bay over north from bay marina and had a bite in the first minute...then nuthin!
I drilled a few more holes and my brother had the honey hole today. He caught 14 with 2 over 22". I caught 3 less than 20' from him. So i kicked him out of the hole and within a minute had one up to the hole but he spit it as he was half way out. No count dang it!
So strange how one hole is catching them and I can't do didily. I drilled 10 other holes to no avail.
It was so great to be out though.
I was fishing in 23 feet with about 5 inches of ice. Wanted to venture out further but I got kids and wife and wanna go home to them. No need to be stupid.
Good luck to all you Saturday berry fishers and be careful out there.

Glad you stayed safe. Not everyone with the drive to fish stops to listen to reason (me, when I lose a lure *\-\* ), so that's good that you used your judgment.

It's great that you got out.

Good for you guys. I took my boys up there today also. We were on 3-4 inches of ice West of the Lodge. My boy fought a giant to the hole and as he pulled it out the hook broke (rat finkie). The ice was clear enough to see what it was, so the fish story I am telling puts the cutt at about 24-25 inches. I iced one 21" and had 3 or 4 hits. It was sloowwww, but that is what I always find around the marina.

We will head back up tomorrow or maybe hit Rockport.
