Going out this afternoon.

We have a solid 3.5", although around the edges it's a little thinner.

We pushed snow off a 50' x 50' area yesterday and the ice was like glass. The kids ice-skated for a couple of hours and this drew kids and adults for all around. By nightfall, there were probably 20 people ice-skating. It was very cool. It is rare that the ice is that smooth.

If I had thought ahead and picked up some bait, I could have fished on Xmas.

Hope to have pics of a bucket full tonight!

The day before the rain. went out to a spot here and took 8 keepers. I won't keep a perch under 10 inches. caught 3 smaller ones. The end of January is when this spot produces good numbers of Jumbo's.

Went and had my Dobutamine Stress Echocardiogram this morning and see the doctor next week.If he gives me the ok I'll be out following day flogging the ice for fish...Seen on another site where a guy stepped off into a fishing hole that had opened up during the thaw on Fletchers,so lets be careful out there and fish with a partner if possible...
