A blast at strawberry for the new year
Great fishing day!! Sly I took my daughter and my bro in law joined us as we went to the berry. We started late and got there around 9:30. The fishing was great from the start we fished for about 4 1/2 hours and caught 30 between all of us. Best of all my daughter had a blast Cool. We were on 3 inches of ice I caught most of mine on a white tube jig tipped with a wax worm just off the bottom at about 20 feet. Here are some pics.

Sounds like you guys had a great day! It's great to get out with the kids. We were up there today on the soldier creek side. The water came through pretty bad after we drilled holes. Water would slowly leak up through the hole until we found ourselves standing in 2 inches of water an hour or so later... a product of thin ice, snow on top of it ( weight), and open water way out in the main bay...
Did you guys experience any slush like we did?

not much slush, it all felt pretty sturdy and stayed that way the whole day

we were at chicken creek east, just out in the bay, there were a lot of people there everyone seemed to be doing well. I heard the ice was a bit thinner at soldier creek.

Two inches, and cracking under my feet. Open water towards the marina.

I had the wadding pool problem at the ladders. Ice was 2" maybe, looked more like 1 1/2". The closer you got to the channel the more scary looking the ice so be careful.

Nice! thanks for the report! Day like that will keep them coming back for more. Even if it is as cold as it was this morning. I was there myself (i think, jakes bay?) with a first time ice fishing friend. Probably pulled in just before you. We were pretty much the only ones that went away from the tent city.. My report would be almost exactly the same except it was nice and quiet out there. Fish were mostly average slots but fun.

It was a tent city, luckily it didn't affect the fishing. Glad you had a great day as well!

FishSlayerJT, How thick was the ice at Jakes. I am heading up Saturday and will ride the sled over the road to Renegade. It is about a 7 or 8 mile trip. I expect to have that bay all to ourselves. Usually pretty void of fishermen. We have always done very well there.

We fished the cove by the highway at soilder creek today during midday and caught around 20. The fush were biting very short. We measured the ice at 5.5 inches. Cloudy ice for top 4 inches and clear on the botton 1.5 inches. Fished in 15ft if water and caught most in 8-12 ft. All rainbows, mostly dinks, but the kids loved it.

The area i was in the ice was pushing 3 in. may be thicker closer to shore. Dont think a sled on the ice would be a good idea

You're making my neck hurt! Tried flipping the screen, and my notepad kept adjusting! Now I'm dizzy too. Tongue

Looks like a fun day out. Daughter's gonna have a slimy coat by end of day!

Have fun, be safe.
