That’s what I get for trusting the dudes at rocky mtn outfitters yesterday. They told me “ice looked unsafe as hell... I wouldn’t walk on it” . So I opted for granby instead. My son and Found a good hole and banged out 5 18-20 inchers till the bite died at 4.

Granby was good. 15 inches with an inch of half frozen slush. We fished off sunset and found a few big humps. Lakers were finicky AF so I downsized to a half inch glow squirmin squirt on a 1/16 jighead tipped with a small cube of sucker meat.... that did the trick. If it stays cold at night up there we probably got a few more weeks of the best ice fishing of the year up there.

Was there snowbanks and mud going down The road to the east shitter? I’d fish thetrbway before anywhere else on Willy’s.... the shelf rarely lets me down.
