I hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas!  Since my last post the ice has thickened considerably, we are averaging 6″ and increasing quickly with this cold weather.  There has been four wheelers out here and by the lights and I expect to start seeing the permanent shanties on the ice.  As far as fishing goes the perch have been biting well out in front of the shop as well as the bluegills.  The crappies have been shutting down in the morning when the sun comes up, but guys are picking up a few during the day also.  Over by the lights the perch fishing has been decent, and some really nice northerns have been pulled up on tip ups.  Stop in for the hot colors and the latest report!
