I was reading that the walters stage in the North bays nearer the dam for spawning at ice out. So that area may seem reasonable. but something tells me maybe closer to the inlet out in the channel 30-50 ft might be a reasonable spot to catch cats and perch.

Hmm
Its that kind of thinking that has you floating away. I think I would avoid the channel by the inlet. Current plus traditionally sketchy ice equals YouTube fame. I think youre right about the eyes staying close to the dam to stage pre spawn. I would stick to the bays or the rip rap. But no guts no glory

I saw the windy forecast a couple of days ago, prolly a better day for ice surfing and NOT ice fishing. I guess were in the crappy weekend weather pattern. Hopefully this wont continue into open water season.

I don't need to ice fish badly enough to deal with 40MPH brutality.  ;)

Water like, when you finally got the hut set up did it pay off or was it a rough day of fishing?

yeah doesnt sound worth it from those nebraska posts.  as for my setting up a hut in the wind ive done it multiple times in 30mph winds. sometimes fishing is good. alot of time its not :) i will say my hut has taken a beating from wind up north. lots of things ripped. still works though..most of those rips were probably my fault, if i knew what i know now. just better at setting it up now than i was in the beginning in extreme conditions

That's one of the reasons I sold my Quickfish3 and got a FX 150 flip. Leave it hooked up to the snowmobile and face the machine into the wind or stake the sled if I don't have a machine. Drill my holes and flip it closed, nice. Just a quick flip to run and gun...
