Plan A was open water fishing a pond , but a 1.5" cap thwarted that plan. We had our ice stuff also but even I won't do 1.5" with temps above freezing and a nice breeze rustling our longjohns. So onto Plan B with another 15 miles and then a 3 mile hike to a little lake I had never iced b4. Got there and had a Oh cRAP moment with open water and only our ice gear. but a little recon found us some 3" ice towards the inlet and it was on. In 4 hrs we got 27 trouts and missed prolly 10. Not the size we were going for but a nice save to the day.
