    Thumbs up Got on the Ice today!!!!!!!!

    Well, I got out this am and managed not to get into some fish.The most ice I found was 2 1/2" in the 2' of water.I ended up fishing on ice about 1 1/2" thick (CREEKY ICE ) over 6' of water to catch my fish and it was a slow bite. ICE FISHING IS THE BEST !!!!!! :D

    Default Yours are bigger than ours

    We don't go out until there's a good four inches of ice, but that fish sure looks nice. We will have first ice by next w/e, but I doubt we'll see safe ice before January. Never know, tho. Be careful out there. - Roberta

    1 1/2" of ice.............. what do you weigh, 60lbs? At my weight, 235, theres no way i'm going out there on that. Good luck and bless you. No fishing is worth going thru for, even in 2ft water !

    Lee, it's been close to a year since I've fished Odessa and I only live about a mile from the lake. Does that tell you anything about my faith in that lake? I'll probably give it one or two tries this winter. If I happen onto something, I'll contact you. But be ready for good long hike.
    Right now the lake is at duck season levels, with ice forming. They'll be dropping it soon though I imagine. That might make for some slippery slopes when going from the shore onto main lake ice.
