    There are always haters out there. I will believe what Mr. Bluegill has to say since he has a few more posts than you Fishbone. No offense of course.

    It looks like it will be a long season and I will be checking some of my early ice spots next weekend just to see how it is developing.

    I wouldn't doubt it at all. There are some small 1-2 acre ponds in grand rapids that is completely froze over and looks walkable but i weigh a little bit more then you do mr. bluegill so i'm gonna wait awhile and got things ready, hopefully be out on the channels soon!;)

    I believe him, he is usually the first of us crazy ice fisherman that ventures out early. I think he was the first last season to post

    Way to go! I believe every word of the post! He is always the first guy to pull a fish threw the ice every year.

    Obviously you are a new member, because MrBluegill is the first out every year. Granted he may be a little nutty to most, but down here in Cass County I am the first as well. I have been out on 2" or less on several occasions without going in. The only time I have went in was on honeycombed ice late in the season or when I was being stupid drunk and jumping on the ice near open water. LOL!!! Now that was stupid! I just pulled myself out and poured my boots out and fished til dark. Man I can't wait til we get near 2" down here so I can get out.

    I got out yesterday morning too! Sliver Lk. channel near Kinderhook. There was 2 1/2" of good hard ice, I spuded 6 holes and i got zero bites. It was still way cool to get on this early, I have never be on the ice this early before.

    First off fishbone my son and myself fish with nick all winter and ive seen him on less than 2.5 inches. And he's a good guy that has no reason to lie and a hell of a good angler. id bet money that he could out fish you on gun lake 2 to 1 and further more does it make you feel special to call someone out on something that has no effect on you either way.:(

    You can believe Mrbluegill. he does get out on first ice every year. Heck a wet pillow weighs more than he does :) that sure helps when trying out first ice. I'm pretty sure I know where he went and I can believe theirs 2" of ice.
    I've fished 1.5" of clear ice before but will never do that again. just not worth the risk (and I'm 215#). That was like literally like walking on clear glass, cool but very scary..
