Hit the ice for 1st time this year.  Ice was decent with what looked like 4 Inches of white ice on top of 3 inches of clear.
Mostly dink perch with a rare keeper.   Saw 3 other people.  Nice folks. Their catch wasn't any better.
Still looking for a lake that holds quality panfish.

I thought I'd play it safe.  Stayed home.

Nimisila can wait for a couple more days.   

Sure am anxious to fry up some ice pan fish!!!!

Looks like I'm not the only one who has noticed a decline in icefishohio activity. Perhaps it's due to a couple of short ice fishing seasons???

I hope I didn't jinx the season by proactively making my new smitty sled.

Piedmont / Ice conditions
« on: February 17, 2021, 09:06:33 PM »
Fished Piedmont today. Where I fished ( near the dam) , the Ice had about 3 inches of good hard stuff covered with approximately another 4 inches of soft white ice.
I was shooting for saugeye.  No luck.  Coming off the ice I talked to a guy that said he picked up 8 dink crappie. It looked like there may have been open water at the mouth of the marina bay.  Lots of geese, swans, and ducks  were congregating there.

Is there parking at the Lodge?

Fished the north end today along the buoy line. 6 to 7 inches of ice.  Like last year there is a tremendous crack in the ice just off of the parking lot.  Getting off the ice this evening was a challenge. The crack was wide for long stretches.  Be careful crossing that thing especially in the dark. We had to walk 100 yards or so south of the parking lot to find a place to cross.

Remember to put the blade covers back on the auger after each use.  That snow covered wet ice is really slippery.  One fall on your blades could cause serious injury.

Nimisila / Green Fire Dept. Ice Resue training

Watched Green training ice rescue was less than 2 inches.  I got a real education on how dangerous falling in is.  One young fireman couldn't pull himself out onto to ice even with ice picks.   So I know as old as I am I'd be in real was really spooky watching the ice roll like a water bed......

Oh Man!!!.....and I just bought one of those auger sharpeners wannafish told us about on EBAY!    For somebody to do it for $5 it's not worth the effort for me to try and sharpen them.  Oh'll give me something to do when the ice is gone.  Speaking of ice....... is the ice safe???? ;D

General Discussion / The end is in sight

One of the tell tale signs that we're on the caboose of an ice fishing season happened to me yesterday morning.......I walked out of the house to the sound of song birds.  I haven't even begun to get my fill of the hard water. It's time to sharpen the blades up for an end of the season rally.   

Nimisila / Nice day on Nimi

What a jewel Nimi is.......Sat outside the shanty for the first time in ages and got to see several (3) Bald Eagles.  Add a few perch into that and it was quite a day. 

Mogadore Reservoir / One rough Sunday Stroll

Hit the ice on the SR43 side after church yesterday.  I struggled getting anywhere due to the ice conditions.  Although safe, the footing was horrible on account of a thin frozen layer above slush.  Where I ended up I managed a plethora of dinks with a few nice ones thrown in.
