We fished New Years Day @ Painted Rocks. The ice was fine 4" good solid ice. The perch were small 4" to 9". I didn't find any deep water, and would recommend going to the west side of the lake. I wasn't able to move around much, but didn't see, or hear anything to exciting. Since you have to keep the first 10 perch through the ice, it doesn't take long to fill up on worthless fish. Keep moving until you find a bigger school.
