Fished just from 430 until 630 both nights and did very well. Caught fish in 8 to 10 feet of water. Fish where in the 13-18 inch range. A flasher is a very good tool to have as all my fish didn't hit until I had the jig 3 to 4 feet off the bottom. Heavy jigging is the way to go I havd 5 tipups out both night and caught nothin. I didn't see any tipups catch fish. Ice is in great shape. good luck.
