    I've heard they had some pretty nice cats in that lake... I have a buddy that lives right by there that goes 2-3 times a week and he's caught a few in the 20-30 pound range.... looking foward to hearing what you catch... :)

    lake frozen 1/4 inch thick in some areas out to 100 yards or more..didnt get to make it out on the boat...fished from shore maybe 4 out of 24 hours....nada....used shad and eel....we could only cast one rod out to unfrozen water from shore.....with smaller rods your bait just sat on the ice. so they were not even thrown out....we kinda knew we wouldnt catch anything but we had bait so we used it....cant wait till summmer

    Sounds to me you need to break the Tip-Ups and ice auger out.
