Have not hit #3 yet this year, but I would bet that the ice is good. We usually do good jigging Rapalas, and small tube jigs. Last year we fished it the first weekend in Dec., and with this years colder temps.
I ice fished Honholtz #3 2 winters ago. The wind was so bad I had to crawl on the slick ice. But the fishing was good. Lots of 10 to 18" browns on 2" black tube jigs. Watch out for the weather. My Volvo almost got stuck during the blizzard. John
