    2 of us went out of old cut NNW from 9am-4pm and moved once then action was non stop. The dinks outnumbered keepers by about 6-1, but we managed 29 solid keepers - 8.5" and up.
    Most of the bigger perch were caught between 2pm and 4pm til we ran out of minnows. 5' of water, 8" of clear hard ice and could barely see minnows right on bottom.
    Dead stick worked, jigging worked.Started with 2 rods each,but fished most of the afternoon with only 1 rod each.
    It was a fun, tiring as heck day.
    Wind was blowing HARD all day, lots of people out.
    Earliest hard water trip to long point ever

    when you go out from old cut, to the left in front of point there is an open patch quite large that the ducks are still using. Other than that everything we walked on was solid.

    It is quite windy here today and that is causing fluctuating water levels. The water is above the ice in the channel behind me. Access to the ice from the Long Point side of the bay is heavily affected by these.

    Be careful on the ice next few days.
