Thanks lethal, i'll be taking a trip out there soon, i've been promising a friend some pike fishing but some health problems mean i better find somewhere i can drive him right up to the hole (for a couple more weeks as well). I know were some good spots from the past are so if i make it i'll let you know how it is also.
And Dodger, where were you fishing at? I was out last Sunday and had a few tags up. I noticed there biting really light but were hanging out fairly deep (10-15 feet). I think it should be picking up in the next couple weeks as they start to think of fattening up for the spawn. THe water seemed to be really nice and clear and no foul odor where i set up (unlike CPR). I mentioned it in another post but i had a very large pike up to the hole (darn single barbless!!). I did not notice another ice fishing hole anywhere either, no pressure.
