Warm Weather Break Ice Action
With bait bucket and associated fishing tackle in hand it was off in search of some perch. From the time I drilled the first hole in the frozen water I was into the tasty fish.
Jigs in blue glow tipped with a perch eye or minnow seemed to do the trick.Ice thickness was around 12'' thick .
The best fishing seemed to be early in the day. There was ample parking along the road going through the harbor. only had to walk about 200 yards off shore to find the fish.
On a colder day I would suggest a fishing shanty and a heater to protect you from the cold. Bait can be purchased right there almost on the water and food and drink can be found close by.
