If your goal is to make the person looking at the pic depressed....then yes I agree, you take good pics.

Jon, that looks like one of those rubber fish Shawn's always talking about.  That's why he's not smiling.

It's going to go quick.  Last Friday it rained moderate to downpour for 1 1/2 hours.  Lot of standing water got absorbed into the ice in 2 hours after.  Soft and air filled...note that the 6" of black ice underneath was compromised 5
-6 weeks ago with a warm spell as well.
Hoping for one last stab at em this weekend.  I can't go out with a bunch of lazy chasers like this past weekend.

I was out yesterday and was on 13" in the main basin out of Vet's and Sunday up in NW Bay on at least that much and in both cases the bottom 4-5 was rock solid, clear ice. If I understand correctly the new ice is formed on the bottom of the existing ice so I'm assuming that the bottom ice has all been formed in the last two or three weeks after the snow melted?

I know things change quickly with the sun this time of year but the block of ice that was there yesterday is fairly substantial.
Goin' where the wind don't blow so strange,
Maybe off on some high cold mountain chain.

Weíre supposed to get bombed with snow again.  The least amount iíve seen is 4-8 inches, and others at 6-12.  Man I hate snow.

Iím looking ahead to open water perch fishing.  Would like to get my brother out in my jonboat & thought weíd try Huddle.  Would you guys with experience expect to find them right in shallow or do LG perch tend to spawn in deeper water?  Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

Iím looking forward to this answer as well...

Man does it ever change fast.  I was out in north basin yesterday and measured 12 inches of ice early in am and checked same hole on way back in pm  and it was 9 inches.  That sun did a job on it; especially the top 3 inches.  Those pressure ridges that were solid last week are on the move and small ponds are forming around them.  Be extra careful if you do go out.  Look for access in shaded areas.  Shorelines are  opening up fast.

Fishing was OK.  Lots of small perch and small lakers.  Downsize if you want to catch lakers.  Got largest laker on tungsten jig ::)
Da Fishmon!

I tell people all the time, including the guys I hunt with, to smile. We are, after all, having fun.

Shawn suffers from clinical depression so lakers do not make him happy.   ;D
