    Fished summit yesterday and caught 40 nice gills up to 10 inches in cove.Ice was 7-8 inches thick.Fished about 4-5 hours with jig and wax worms.Tried whitewater state park the day before ice was only about 3 inches and we didnt get a bite.I like it to be at least 4 inches so i didnt move around alot.Love that ice fishin!!Bluegills in the skillet thats what im talkin about!!!

    No Tim ive never fished st.marys but been by it a few times on my way up to kokomo.When i was at summit some guy mentioned the lake its probably close to two hours from columbus. Thanks for the info and id love to catch some perch.I can taste them now with some fried taters and a salad.Yummy.Indian Lake is close by also i have a friend that lives right on the lake.My cuz lives over in connersville and me and him fish alot.Im thinking about going back over and i just got back home.

    fished nyona and didnt get nothing ice was 7 inches thick but cracking to much for me so i went to greentown with my buddy and caught 10 keepers and 15 bait size blue gill they are biting but with the temps in the fourtys it will be unsafe to fish :eek:

    channel, i think it will get cold before the ice gets bad enough to worry about it. we have a great base of ice up north still. the best thing about the temps is all the holes already open like last ice!
