    I was out with my 2 sons and a friend on New Years day ice fishing. Annual tradition for 30 or so years.. We landed about 30 fish. Kept enough perch for a meal. 3 were walleye but were under 12 inches so back in they went. Looks like fun.

    Leaving - it is all frozen, not wet as the picture seems to show. All the holes froze over with a thick cap last night.

    Happy to advise all vehicles made it off without the need for assistance!

    Used to fish the West arm of Nippising years ago, looks like fun and makes me miss fishing the hard water

    It's been several years since we've had a freeze long enough to make the ice walkable, but we used to do a lot of snaring on the local creeks.

    What a great offer, and just down the street! Unfortunately, I will be visiting my folks down south at that time. But, I really appreciate the offer!
