We took our 6 x 6 up past there last weekend. There was a crack that opened up about 6 inches. Just below above the s curves.

Auger injury huh?  Did we make a rookie mistake?  Yup, you should have went with us.    :whistle: :whistle: :whistle:

Al, cut my hand on the auger blade loading the truck. Forgot to put cover on. 10 stitches in my hand, so I am out for the next 1 to 2 weekends. That loud creeping sound you hear is Sammie opening up his wallet to buy bait and food ;D

Thanks. Anyone with wheelers going beyond the islands? Ice thickness is all I need.
Sunday Just below the islands I had 8" on a tape I ran all the way up to above the islands.
Be careful though, take it slow and read the ice.

Went out from 0830-1030 in the morning (had to go to work at noon :( ) Caught a few crappie and this smallmouth pictured. The smallmouth came up on the vex screen after the jig was about a foot from the bottom at around 20 feet.

It's 10:30 AM Wednesday and it's currently 32 degrees and snow flurries here in Whitney Point. Doubt we are going to lose any ice with that.  ;D ;D

Just look up the lake you will see where people are fishing just don't poke holes right up there butt. Typically your looking for water 10+ feet deep look at the contour map on the DEC website or navionics.
Some target the channel some like the flats and some fish the old pond area.

How is the perch fishing on Whitney? I've never really fished for crappies and walleye.

we've caught a few perch this year. All nice sized ones but not in any big numbers. I wouldn't count on filling up your bucket with them.  >:( :(

Measured 8 and 9 inches most places tried yesterday, but closer to 5 inches near 3 small islands on the west side (I did have my wheeler).  All solid ice.  There was some spots with an inch of water on top, partially frozen.  First time at WP, did not find too many fish, just some perch.  Gonna have to try it again.
