Ventured out this weekend on the area lakes and found 10-14inches of ice. Lots of people driving 1/2tons out there and ice houses coming out in full force. A bit early for me to drive vehicles yet but the snowmobile was just great! I ended up with 7 crappies for my time and they hit the fry pan last night! Of course when I tried to take a picture it looks as though the sand in Mexico took its toll mechanics..
