And if there is structure the fish don't hold to that structure, they roam and move around and so should you. Go by some scoops of minnows and drill and drill until you find fish.

Its going to be awful out there after this cold spell that finally made good ice with warmer temps coming.  With not a lot of snow cover to restrict access the thundering herds are going to be everywhere. It may be best to just sit and wait for everyone else to push the fish to you. Its going to be a zoo out there on some of these lakes.
