First IceĀ 

(One of the walleye caught this morning  on our trip thanks to Calvin Pyle)

Although we seem to have had some decent ice early this season, I wanted to remind everyone to be careful when venturing onto the ice. I have been able to find “safe” ice, however with the heavy snow falls we’ve had, it has insulated the ice in many area’s resulting with ice freezing extremely uneven. I have seen people out with ATV’s already and when walking out, the ice was no thicker than 2″ under slushy spots covered by snow. I would not go out anywhere at the moment without spudding my way out, I would definitely not be taking a snow machine of any type on any body of water at the moment. Stay safe people.
