I went last year...but havent been there this year...

Two things...the ice seems weird there...the first time I drilled a hole and it was like 3 turns of the auger and it went through (I initially went oh crap!) but then I hit another layer of solid ice...the ranger said that it is usually that way...I forget why he said it did that anyway...

Secondly and most importantly after fishing awhile near the bottom and little or no action we found our fish suspended 6 or 9 feet down and it didnt matter where we were or how deep the water was...that was in February last year...and it is later this year as oxygen levels drop due to thick snow, limited light, and dieing vegetation fish come up in the water column sometimes...

Are you taking a vex?...I didnt have one last year...

Good luck...I love that place...it is so quiet there...no people...and the scenery is great too...we took snowshoes also...it was great fun...they rent them at ski shops if you guys dont want to ice fish all the time...they arent very expensive...
