On the coldest day in 30 years Tuesday I got to fish most of the day with Deerslayern. It was great finally getting to meet him. Had a great day and took home a nice basket of Gills. Today I met Fishingoat at sunrise and spent the morning looking for a hot bite.  Also met joewallguy this morning as he was there also. Today was tougher fishing with a lot of sorting through gills and crappie. The morning bite was best for me and the evening bite wasn't bad either. Left with a good basket of crappie and chunky gills. Most of the fish were caught in 6fow on glow green or gold.  The ice was holding up good against the weather. the edges took most of the punishment. I have to say it is a wonderful feeling to finally have some IFOers in my area. Thanks for stopping to say hi and getting out on the ice.

Glad to meet you too.  One of the best things about ice fishing, which does not happen in many other hunting and fishing activities, is that it allow you to get up and bump elbows with your fellow anglers.  Think about it.  If your in your tree stand or standing in a river, you really don't want the other guys right there with you, however, ice fishing is a bit more social, which makes it pretty unique.    Went out this morn and despite the rain and water on the lake Saturday, the lake withheld its ice nicely.  The water drained off, and the cold night firmed things up.  Hope you had cleats thought, because it was slick.   Still had 5 inches or so of good ice.  Fished 6 and 7 foot did best for gills with glow red glow, green glitter and gold horizontal jigs.  Had a few dink crappie as well.
If the lake can take 1 more warm rain, I think it will be solid the rest of the week.  Good luck if you make it out.
