Ok ladys and gentlemen I'm writing this looking for some advice I've never  have ice fished for muskey before and me and a group of guys are going to tomorrow to try and land a tiger muskie  at keystone state park just to see if we can  we have all out tip ups rigged heavy and 2 dozen big shinners I've cought them there from sure and on the kayak but I'm wondering what areas/ water columes should I look for when targeting them

Landed a musky!   Well done ice.  And why would someone be upset with you reporting ice conditions?   Aren't we all here for the same reason? 
Good work and be safe.

Don't get me wrong I would love some more ice time on keystone since it's nice and close to home but I was out there yesterday and the lake was flooded pretty bad over the road at the spillway  and the ice was all but gone kinda sad to see a nice 10 inches disapear so fast but the rain screwed us  I was hoping some would stick around but looks like we will have to start over fresh
