    Brought home 2 walleyes, 2 perch and a crappie yesterday for the weekend. Caught a few more perch and about a dozen northerns. Slow but overall a pretty decent weekend.

    That last photo looks like a carp. Have seen rare photos of carp caught through the ice. I recall, raised in central OH, that there was a formula for safety on ice, starting with one inch, etc. I recall walking on Madison Lake, west of Columbus- 24 inches of ice and they were driving cars on it. Western Lake Erie has ice fishing events. Shanties are set up in rows, have a post office, mayor, police chief, etc., just like a town.

    Working from “home” tomorrow. Some serious wind out on Mille Lacs tonight, tomorrow and tomorrow night. Parked 100 yards off the road in a random spot. Couldn’t see a thing when we got here. Will be drifted in for sure tomorrow. Going to be fun.

    Mille lacs dink. Would make a good lake of the woods eater if we were there. Kinda surprised we are marking fish/catching right off the road like this.

    I’m surprised because we went off the road 100yds no where near where we wanted because of the white out in a random spot. Crazy we are actually marking fish.
