The ice was ok and the slush wasn't too bad, we went on Saturday. TFB I got your advice too late, although we did start by the inlet. It is really shallow in that area and we ended up walking quite a ways out into about 9 feet and fished there for a while. Looking back I should have put my tip ups out but we were just trout fishing there. Caught like 4 small trout and we were getting bored so we moved to the marina bay and caught plenty of trout mostly smaller 12-16 with one a little over 18. Of course the nice one was caught by my bro in law who was kindly watching my rod while I was doing the dirty work setting up tip ups in the shallows lol. Caught 3 pike total, one jigging a genz worm, other 2 on the tip ups with 8" sucker. Pike were 20-22" nothing big but still fun. I love this lake and had probably my best day ice fishing ever earlier this year in January. I am also going for a full week in early June with a boat so that will be fun.
Oh, and all fish caught were released like always. We just go for fun. At the end of the day there were 2 coyotes running on the ice and checking all the holes drilled looking for scraps, I threw them a couple suckers, that was a good time seeing them check all the holes.
