    was at CJ today (1-17) with Chubbahead out from the campground, had a lot of slush and pooling water on top but still good ice between 4-6 inches. fished 2 different spots next to the old roadbed, ended up with 4 dink channels, 2 on rod 2 on tip-ups. was using cut shad and chicken livers. to my suprise seen 3 other fishermen out near us jigging for walleyes, talked to one when we left, he had apparently just caught and released a nice channel cat. when we left though we jumped across a big crack that loosened up and had water coming through and both ice sheets were moving when we got near the crack. wont be back out there anytime soon! also attached is a creepy video of one of the channels trying to swim after i cleaned him lol.

    Looks like a good day out Mike, Glad to hear you guys caught some channels. I have been disappointed in the weather here lately, hope we get some good ice without snow soon! rollo
