Hello Ice Fish Ohio!

I am absolutely excited to find this site. I have been ice fishing for about 6-7 years, but am new to this area since work has moved me to central Ohio. This winter holiday season I finally brought my ice gear back from Chicago where it was hibernating in my parents basement. I am thinking of heading to Buckeye Lake this Saturday. I have never been to this lake before. Any pointer would be greatly appreciated. Last Saturday I went to a few ponds in Galloway and I got the boot from the Metro Parks Ranger. He was super friendly and had a good laugh when I should him my photo of the Largemouth I fought for about 10 minute on a pink tear drop and 2 lb test.

Anyways, being from the Windy City I could talk for a hour.
Just happy to find fellow Ice Hunters!
