first of all im new to the site and was also a lurker for a week or so then decided i may as well jump on board being im out just about everyday. might as well put in my .02 and hopefully help all of us do a little better and stay safe. any who me and a couple buddies are thinking of venturing to the river tom around bay city because eyes on the bay have been slow an im getting sick of jiggin for nothing ahah. hopefully next week we will be able to get out to some good fish. seen a few people on the new ice today out by the black hole (crazy buggers) but i was just wondering were there is decent ice and fish on the river? i havent been on it in a few years and i dont really want to get wet. especially on that unforgiving sucker. also report from tonight off linwood rd in 12fow was absolutley nothing. talked to about 10 guys and they said the same thing. ice is 8-10 just so everyone knows. any info will be great and good luck to all and stay dry!
