    Went last week to secret lake down Swanson river road. Did pretty well, ice was 12" or so thick, much thicker than I expected

    Spirit lake had 13" of good ice a week and a half ago.
    Fishing was good also.
    Yes there are some good fish around the peninsula this year.
    The time before that when I went out I almost couldn't catch any small ones.
    Of the seven fish I caught before calling it a day after reaching my limit of rainbows only 2 were small. My wife had 4 or 5 small ones before limiting out herself on nicer fish.
    All fat 16" -18" fish. From Johnson lake no less.
    Having the right jigs seems to make a big difference. Fortunately I make them myself so always have a good supply of what works.

    fishing has been pretty good thus far. Was out on Spirit 5 days ago and it was solid ice with some good fishing. Just and FYI there is now a Facebook page for Kenai Peninsula Ice fishing, check it out https://www.facebook.com/groups/1513944808866515/
