Fished Belmont with JC 9:45 to 11:15 am. Got about 20 6 to 8 in Perch on my icefishing gear, it really works the best rather than reg. fishing rod. Most came on Auger (I don't know how you spell that) Spoon w/ 3 maggots, not on the orange icejig I also had tied above w/ 2 maggots.
When we got there there was about 1 in of ice pretty much throughout the whole harbor. We used a gardening tool to bust the ice up. Keep it in large chunks and you can push the under the ice. Thatway they stay out of your way. JC is smart like that.
