Same here.   I didnt get out either.  Killed me.   The window we had I was sick with flu.  Then we lost the base and I wont go out on 2 anymore.   I have all the safety gear, but all the early spots by me only have dink gills at 2 of ice.  We need a good 3-4 for me to get to my good spots.   Im not into risking my life or gear for a 3 fish anymore.   Getting too old for that.   I am super disappointed though.   This is the first year Ive missed in a long long time.

Yah I never got out once in Ohio. I'm in about the same boat as you Joel. Need some decent ice to get to my good spots and at 250 lbs I am not going out on 2 1/2 inches. If my butt hole is puckered up the whole time it really isn't that much fun. Lol. Did make a couple Michigan trips but really love fishing Indian and it's disappointing not getting on there. Did get the boat out yesterday! Got 27 keeper crappie using ice gear.  :D

Agreed.   Unfortunately boat season is here with zero ice trips!   So disappointing!

I guess that I was lucky to get out 3 days in December on my pond. I thought it was just the beginning of a great season! Maybe next year................
