I took the portable out today for about two hours. drilled some holes and checked the equipment.
I'm considered by friends a bit stupid for getting out on early ice but to have a four wheeler out there is a bit to much for my nerves especially so far south. Of course, I think typo is all of about 4 ft deep so it's probably not as big a risk as being on a real lake.
Yes Typo is shallow. I've had some really good luck fishing for eyes in the shallows on a few inches of ice. I have also seen a few big ones cruise through the spear hole on early ice. Get those tip-ups out, I think its here!!
