The temperatures have produced 3-4 inches of ice on most area lakes but be extra careful and check the ice depth wherever you go as depths are not the same everywhere. Northern are being caught as well as perch. Crappie seem a little more finicky. With no snow cover on the ice and warm temps the vegetation may be enough to keep the crappie in the deeper water until they have to come in to feed. It was also suggested, when fishing for crappie set up a tip-down and back away as the fish can see you through the ice until we get some cover. Happy fishing and stay safe.
