So normally this time of year we have 18 to 20 inches of ice at Mountain Home. This year, a scant cover of 6 inches. For a change I fished the north side of the lake. It had 6 inches, but the shoreline shows where it has thawed recently, creating that slick glare ice. Bite was fair and caught dinner for tonite. Enjoyed the chat with Greg out there as well, braving the north end. Tight lines amigos. And be careful just the same with these mild weather conditions.
