Fished a private pond in Ashland today with a friend. Managed 3 gills the hole day, I also missed about 5 more. All in All it was fun. I have a quick question though! Why does the ice very in thickness close to the edges and in the middle on a pond? It was 10-12 inches in the middle, and so thin it was cracking on the sides? It's about 5 acres btw!
