Went to IL today and icefished at Long Island. Ice was about 3-4". Only one bay was safe to fish. We ended up catching over a hundred gills but only about 20 of them keepers (7"). Fished from 9 to 5 PM. Also caught 1 perch and 1 3lb yellowbelly. Mousies seemed to work a little better than wax worms but when they were biting it didn't matter. Water was about 4-6'. Felt good to be on the ice again. I talked to a guy there and he said that he caught a bucket of crappies Tuesday night but we didn't catch a crappie all day. After this weekend I think we will have a good week of ice making.
