Made it out for the 1st ice fishing trip of the 2017/18 season. Found a solid 4-5" on the south end of the lake although there are still some thin 2" spots near the middle of the lake.

Found both Browns and Rainbows early feeding just 5-10' below the ice but as the day progressed they moved further offshore and deeper. More aggressive jigs paid off in the morning but by the afternoon smaller jigs with very little action is where it was at. Ended up with seven fish total.

Enjoy the video!

Went back to Rat for an afternoon of fishing. Caught 5 nice bows in short order including one on my new powered Sullivan tip down. Ice is 7" with 3-4" of mushy white ice on top.

&t=69s

Ice is now unsafe on Rat.

Rat has 5"+ ice and the Rainbows are biting well.

Another good video. Lots of fun catching quality trout under the conditions.
