I finally got my ice fishing stuff together and got out on an area lake on 12/8. A few guys have been going out on Platte since the end of November. The lake I was on had 4.5-6″ of ice. I started in the weeds, which were lifeless. A guy showed up who has been fishing the area lakes that have safe ice. He said everywhere has been tough other than small pike and little perch in Platte Lake. I eventually found some life in 13-15′. Little perch and one 11″ pike. The other guy covered a lot of area and was constantly on the move. Not a great first trip, but I didn’t get skunked. Hopefully, I’ll be back out on the same lake on Monday.
