I lied to Grumpie Gills. Told him I wasn't planning on hitting the mile till next week. But my wife said I could go this morning so I was at Witcher's Cove and fishing by 7-10am. 10 inches of ice there. Fished in 22 feet of water. Patch of open water just off the shore. The middle of the res. is still all open water from North boat ramp to Goose Island and to Howbert Point. Was also open water down by Sucker Cove. Seen 8 anglers at Cross Creek, 10 anglers at Rocking Chair-Lazy Boy area, 25 by Stoll Mt. campground, and there was 20 in the Witcher Cove area. Don't know how thick the ice was in these other areas. Most of the middle of the lake looked iffy. I didn't even have a bite. Didn't see anyone by me catch any either. Talked to 2 guys with electronics and they barely marked any. Was gonna try Howbert and Sucker but didn't have the summer poles. ;D Where the hells the cold winter weather? ??? Anyone else out there today do any good?
