So if a person wanted to go this weekend do you think they need to use extra caution or will the ice most likely be safe? I haven't ice fished this lake much so I don't know where the trouble spots normally are at....

Or should I just wear the chest waders?

I was out all day Saturday and the ice was about 5in of solid ice, 2 inches of crappy ice, and about a half inch of water ontop. I know there is still Ice on the lake, but I suggest staying off it for a few days to harden up.

PICKLED NORTHERN

Fillet and skin, cut fish into bite size chunks. No need to remove Y bones as the vinegar will dissolve them.

Start with 1/3 cup canning salt in a pint jar

Fill tightly with fish and white vinegar, shake to mix

Cover and leave in fridge

Shake three times a day for five days

Drain and soak in cold water for 1/2 hr

Put fish in a quart jar with 1/2 cup sugar, one tablespoon pickling spice and onions, cover again with white vinegar

Leave in fridge for three days

Enjoy

If they come out too tart for your taste, it's because they weren't packed tightly enough at the beginning. Just add more sugar.

Love pike. Much better than walleye IMO. Fry them or boil them. Perfect. A little practice cleaning them and you will be a pro. Many good youtube videos of removing the Y bones.

Many people have told me northern is better tasting than walleye. Also it's supposed to be good pickled.

Northerns do taste good, just more work to clean. I've done it a few different ways, look on you tube for videos how to do it
