    Managed to get out after work last night. I hugged the shore line and spudded to my destination. I found the ice to be of good quality and 2-3 ” thick. Actually when I did venture away from shorline after my tipups were set I found 3″ of great ice on the lake. The walleye are in typical first ice locations, coming up on the flats to feed. I had 5 flags and two chunky keepers in 2 hours. Getting ready to head back out…..here is my first fish of the season

    Thanks guys, the bite was quite slower today. The morning was dead with two flags, no fish. The evening bite gave me 7 flags with 2 pike and 4 walleye. Unfortunately the size of the walleye was considerably smaller than last night. While the area I am fishing has good ice, my buddys who were trying to access there favorite first ice spots reported less than favorable conditions. Bottom line: use your head and dont take unnecessary risks for a couple fillets.
