Hey Matt, I'm hoping we can get out there by 6PM.  I'm waiting for the wife to get off work, then I'll pick up HND and we'll head down there.  We'll be in a Black Frabil near the cement pillar with the heat cranked! 

If you want to stop by and say hello to your old rod and do some fishing, shoot me a PM.  I'll get the PM on my phone and can reply.

Waiting to hear back from 74redone, we may also be joining you. Would those near the QC and Galesburg like to have an IceShanty meet up one weekend on Lake Storey?

Pretty typical trip to Storey.  Marked fish all night long, caught a bunch of dink Crappie, and ended up with a dozen keepers.

Should probably add a few things.  The ice was 11", and very solid.  We fished in 25' of water, most of the bigger Crappie were caught about 4' off the bottom.  Deadsticking seemed to be the best, too much jigging just got lookers.  I was using a spoon tipped with a minnow head, and HND was using a Horizontal jig tipped with Spikes.
