I get layed off next friday until march so i'll be ready for some of that east harbor bluegill action. It was Jan 18th when i started last year and the ice was iffy then but set in quick.

Tried it...disliked it.
Did you catch ant fish? That makes a huge difference in the enjoyment level of ice fishing. Last year was one of the best ice fishing seasons this state has ever seen. Most people I've heard of that tried it for the first time last year are absolutely hooked (no pun intended) on ice fishing.

Last yr was my first yr ice fishing Erie . Luckily a buddy of mine has lots of gear and started me right . Its so much fun using a flasher and watching fish interact with the lure .

Caught a couple. Always did better on ponds than the lakes around here. I would do it if I didn't have anything else to do. Would rather tackle the honey-do list first. Lol

Just need the wind to die down and we'll be in business before too long boys! Sandusky Bay is froze clear across and I've heard there is ice all around the islands on Lake Erie. Wind chills at -20 by this weekend!!! Bring on the ice!
