I hit Lake Hopatcong the last 2 days...ice is in pretty good shape in a lot of spots.  Always use caution.  I was able to jig a few perch and sunnies the last 2 days.  Today yielded larger fish, but overall a slow weekend.  I agree with Evil Tom, a difficult, weird ice fishing year.  TD

Watch out this weekend if you go. I was fishing 7-10” today and it was rock hard in the morning. The sun was beating up the ice all day and by 1pm the top 3-4” was water and slush and it didn’t even hit 40 degrees. Some spots got scary quick. Wear some ice picks, flotation and spud spud spud!
