Hey all...finally got out there and iced it today. Ice was about 10 inches thick with a 2 inch snowcover. Very easy to walk where you want to go. Drive right to edge of the lake and away you go. I fished for a couple of hours and had ZILCH bites. But the Lowrance showed fish after fish passing by...high, low and in between in 25 FOW. No bites on small plastic jig with mealworm, a usual killer. SOOOOO, what I surmised is that the fish passing by were....carp....suckers....and small perch that chose not to bite. Water clarity was only 1.5 feet...kinda greenish water. One Amish fella said he caught a 12 inch sucker and it had BITE MARKS on it! That leads me to believe there are still some pike in that lake. Here's a few pics of the lake and yours truly...hey gotta do something when the fish aint bitin!
