Have seen very large schools of baitfish on the Vexilar. I have wanted to try and capture some of those baitfish to see what size they are and to confirm what they actually are.

I think they are least cisco:

An annual ADF&G report (volume 26-Doxey) cited stomach contents of 10 fish captured in 1984 consisted of least cisco, slimy sculpins, and in small lakers, insect remains. The report also makes reference about large quantiies of cisco in the lake.

Use your extension it will save your back. Lots of super hard packed snow on top. Ice pretty thick.
