  • Ice Fishing...The ONLY way we'll walk on water!

Barton is locked up! Ice by the ramp was 4", but ice looked a little iffy just out from the ramp channel(that is where the creek channel runs from the N. to S. end and dumps into the river). I was by myself and only had my spud, so I didn't get too carried away to check the creek channel area.

Southwest corner access next to the river: Sled and foot tracks going down to the ice(since Sunday's last snow) and onto the ice. Tracks and 1/2 dozen set of holes from 20' out to 150' from the shore. 5" of ice in the holes I checked.

Unfortunately, the individual/s that were fishing left their trash and cigarette butts on the ice and was froze in. Some people just don't care!! >:(

May have to fish for crappie this weekend. ;D

Fished Barton for a couple hours this evening, marked several fish, but couldn't get them interested in hitting. Ice was a solid 6".
