Although the ice thickness is considered mostly safe, getting around on it can be difficult. There's a 4" layer of slush beneath the snow that realy limits travel. Those that are braving those conditions are beginning to fill their stringers with some nice crappies. Try Low lake and One pine lake in 20-24' of water. Minnows under a slip bobber seems to be the preferred method.
Even eminent chartered accountants are known, in their capacity as fishermen, blissfully to ignore differences between seven and ten inches, half a pound and two pounds, three fish and a dozen fish. ~ William Sherwood Fox, Silken Lines and Silver Hooks, 1954
