Plain stupid... I checked it yesterday around 3pm and it was junk soft white ice. One easy strike with the spud and I was through. I even walked out on the seawall next to the boat launch and checked it farther out...same result. It needs more time, imo.
The boat launch area seems to be taking awhile to freeze up. Going to check the slip area. Maybe they won't bubble the docks this year. That would open up a larger fishing area that was a fish producer in the past.
