January 31st, 2011 The ice is getting thicker every day. With 8 - 17 inches of ice. From the Old Cut access point we haven't heard of any poor ice conditions. There are huts out to and past EC10. Lots of anglers with limits of Perch, as well lots of nice size to the Perch. Can't say it enough jigging is the key. And the BIGGER your spoon to lure them in the better.
