I thought I'd start a new thread on ice fishing now that the lakes are freezing over. I'm hoping that the hardwater anglers will post their reports here. I'm taking a ride today to check on ice thickness at a local lake. I usually go after Trout but sometimes fish for Largemouth and Panfish. Anyone interested in giving ice fishing a try let me know, I have plenty of gear. I got a power auger also so we don't have to bust our butt's drilling holes.
