It was nice getting out on open water for the first time this year. I don't ice fish because I love to ski. Fished from 3pm-10pm. Water temp was around 47 already! Shad balls were already easy to spot. Water was extra murky even for the Crack, if I'm not mistaken. This average one (& the only one) was shallow. I suspect this one tested with a short strike & then committed to the entire fathead which I had hooked thru the lips. I marked lots of nice eyes in 18-23 FOW. Side imaging didn't see very many in the shallows & neither did my spotlight but the water is extremely murky so I'm not sure it would have worked. I normally avoid this place because this is my typical success rate when visiting a couple of times a year. It seems those who know it can do very well consistently. Not me. Chatfield is very close to home but they've been slow to open this year. Hopefully I'll have a decent Chatfield, Aurora, or Quincy report soon.
