Spent the day on the ice with fasteight. I came up with 21 gills, 11 perch and a crappie(fasteight donated that one). Fasteight might post his catch later.

Never expected to find walkable ice left after a month away from the lake with the temp's and rain that we've had since. We were on 3-4" of some amazingly good ice. I doubt that there will be anything left after the wind we had today. Most keepers were average size, beggar can't be choosy, lots of small fish to weed through. I though that they would have been stacked up in there. They killed them yesterday(of course).

Just happy to have gotten out, thanks for coming along fasteight, hope you back isn't to sore. The ice dropping 12" didn't make climbing on the docks any easier for him.

what a day, i tell ya, fishin with ficious is always an experience to remember when it comes to ice...LOL i fished first ice with him on 2-4" of ice and now last ice, which was a very big surprise when we got there... i ended up with 13 gills and 14 perch, sorted thru alot of smaller ones... had a long dry spell thru the middle of the day but once everyone else left, ficious figured out the problem and we started catchin fish again.. got a little crazy out there thru out the day with the rain, snow and nasty wind but ended up bein a great day on the ice, LOL, ICE..... Ed, ficious is the guy u wanna talk to about Gills and crappie, he has always put me on fish, unless salmon fishin, LOL(guess i am bad luck) dont think we will be on that ice anymore this year, it dropped about 10-12" while we was out there today, and yes, my back is killin me, but its worth it ..

Ed Stringer,

Sorry to hear you got run out Ed, I didn't think the guard would be there this early in the year. Night fishing there might be an option if you have a couple of lanterns.

Fried Fillets,

Check you PM's

Ficious, you are nuts... my mind left ice fishing weeks ago. I figured there would still be some canal ice but I'm thinking steel right now!

I don't give up til it's gone, real gone. I'm gonna spend the whole summer trolling, thinking about ice again. Sick puppy? The only time I panfish these days is hard water, just love those tasty critters.

There's still ice, just have to know where to look and to be careful when you do. Zob, find a boat?

More than likely I'll be bumming rides for a while as I don't have the money for that (just bought a new condo). Let me know if you ever need another on the boat. I live a little further away but I had a great time fishing with you last year. Maybe this year the salmon will be there?!?!

Zob,

For what it's worth, I still have those manuals if you are still interested, the price is right. I'll save them. Yeah, I hope there are more fish this year too, or maybe we could start downrigging for perch???? Maybe we just have to try harder this year??

There's still some ice left if you look for it. Shoot me a PM if you are interested.

Yeah, we can talk about those more later... but I'm done for the ice season. My mind is on steelhead right now it would be hard to go back to the ice. I'm surprised you were fishing the canals still when there is open water on Huron!

Do you ever troll shallow water for the spring browns and steelhead?
