Tough day at Rio

Was at Lake Rio Blanco on 1/6 Ice Fishing. Really tough morning and early afternoon...

Ice Thickness - 4-5" in most spots. Southern side of lake was at 3", stopped there lol. I'm sure the ice was better over there when we had that cold front but the warmth recently had to have made that side less thick. Sad because I wanted to fish over there some.

Fished all types of different depths...from 10 feet - 30 feet.
Had a tough time marking fish! Caught a couple dink perch to begin the day but over the course of the next 5-6 hours, nada! Looking for some tips on warmwater species! Was throwing: Dynamic lures HD Ice (several patterns), Several 1/32oz and 1/16oz tungsten jigs (Titan and VMC), Swedish Pimples, mostly everything with waxworms/mealworms...

Video was short but came out nice still, got some really nice drone footage of the lake and area! Hope you enjoy if you choose to watch!!
