Out at Buckeye this evening again. Caught at least a dozen eyes largest was 22" hog...a buddy met me out on the dock and hes an ice newbie but a real good soft water fisherman and he got 3 including a 21.5" fat lizzard and lost one at the hole...hes hooked for life. 2.5" of ice could have walked out but didnt need to. jigging spoons tipped with a minnow head in 4 fow. I had a monster hit my dead stick minnow and took my rod....sucks but lesson learned...i will never use that stupid red wire stand rod holder again...it got stuck in the hole. That was a custom fish styx dead stick rod and a diawa spinning reel $80 down the hole...oh well...it was fun.

Congratulations on the nice fish and a good report. Glad to here that someone has the common sense not to venture out on ice less than 4". I can't stand listening to the lower IQs out there that have to do the end zone dance when they get out on thin, first ice. It's not such a big deal that they put themselves in peril, but also tend to put the novice ice fishermen in peril.

Ill go out on 2.5" of good black/clear ice and have many times...but i wont post for that reason. Dont want to feel responsible for someone getting wet or worse.

no im not saying that,it was not directed to any one person in particular,just my thoughts on pushing the envelope on early ice formation.
