Ice is 10"+  anid bite is slow.  Look for 45-55 FOW and get away from the crowds.  Don't know about registration.  If you are marking fish but they won't commit, downsize your bait.  So far this winter we've seen lots of fish, but triggering them has often been difficult.

Have you been fishing any of the local lakes or ponds? have you been doing well, what are you doing to catch'em, I moved down here from NorthDakota and ice fishing here deffinetly seems different from there? how are you jigging any specific way or just keep it moving?  do you think jigging a wolly bugger on the ice would work as well as it does in the summer months?

I've been mostly fishing Granby for macks, with one trip to 11 Mile for trout.  I fish tiny marabous and soft plastics for the trout, tipped with a waxworm or meal worm.  Most of the time the fish want a very subtle jigging motion, or none at all.  Lake trout are different.  I catch way more fish actively moving the bait for lake trout.  Use a 2"-4" tube jig tipped with a small piece of sucker meat and fish within 18" of the bolttom.  Good electronics help.  Sometimes a Kastmaster for trout or a larger spoon for lakers will trigger fish, too.  Hope that helps.

If your thinking of fishing a wooly bugger you'll need to fish it drop shot style, with a weight below it, so you can feel the very subtle strikes.  Then tip it with a wax worm or mealie or other bait for trout.
