Stopped by Lincoln woods and saw some holes on the beach side….checked north cove looked like 3 inches from the pressure cracks didn’t have my auger….by tomorrow should be some more safe spots. Spud bar and be safe.

Found 4-5” surprisingly at one of my local spots here today in northern RI. Small pond. The wind hurt the bigger spots but after today smaller spots/ protected coves might almost be there. Check and stay safe

Fished on 4.5 inches on Saturday..1 bass and 5 pickerel in about 5 hours.
Keep those holes clean and smooth

Good to hear. Fished on 5 inches yesterday. 15 flags 6 perch and 3 bass. Felt good to be back out. Hopefully the wind and warmer temps today don't hurt much

The dog and I visisted four ponds today. Here are my findings: Wilson's, 6-7 inches 350 feet off the boat ramp, Peck pond 7 inches at the deepest spot, Tillinghast pond 6-7 inches in cove near parking lot, Breakhart 4 inches 100 feet off boat launch. These aren't the rule, rather guidelines to be used with caution. Fred :tipup: :tipup: :tipup: :tipup:

Checked Barbers in SK this afternoon - taking its time. 2" to 3" around edges. Still open in the middle. Will check Wordens tomorrow.

Lots of people on Wordens today.  One guy on Barbers on the old ice near the ramp. Where it was open water yesterday has skimmed over (dark ice).

Good to hear my friend. Did those blokes on barneys get kicked off by a lady that lived right next to it?  ;D

Got out for a few hours this afternoon at Lincoln woods. 6"+ everywhere I drilled. 2 flags but lost both. Lots of skaters and looked like there were a lot of people out over the weekend
