Might have to break up 20 feet of ice but looked open on the dam. Casted X-Raps off the east end. One nice rain and Im on it. Skeeter had 1-3in of ice on it. Too bad! A couple more days of cold weather we would have been out there drillin holes. Tried off the docks and only foul hooked the shad. Waters clear and it sure was nice using the tip-ups.
