Hit another lake in the Valley today and it was pretty **** slow overall. Caught a couple nice fish, not another person around, other then two dogs that came out from a house on the lake. The pucker factor was a little high walking out on the lake, AKNook was walking behind me on the way out and he said the ice was "bowing" under me. It was also cracking as I walked out there, but I think it was just frozen overflow, who knows... After drilling a couple of holes, we found about 5 inches of solid ice, with another 3 inches of rotten stuff from all the warm weather and rain lately. We landed four nice fish, and lost one rod out of the rod holder... Glad it wasn't mine...lol! I'm sure AkNook will post his photos..
