Thanks again for the info, Cpt. Hook. Six is definitely a lot, my pal and I only saw one during two trips there. The ice condition is a concern now, not sure if I go tomorrow

I am not sure what the ice is like this weekend maybe someone can give an update. Spotted walleye on a camera near an island about 500 Metres North and a bit West from boat launch. I have heard it referred to as bird island. We were fishing in about 6 Metres of water (give or take) and about 10 metres off the shore. We had one yank bait off the hook, (saw it on the camera)but that was as close as we got to catching one. The "Lots" I referred to were six eyes, which, to us, was quite a lot because we have fished here several times now, but this was the first time we saw ANY walleye...and 6 is WAY more than none so, to us, it was lots!

Cpt. Hook, thanks for the update!_I still have two walleye tags since I had no luck catching one this year. Can you kindly tell me where did you see the "lots of walleyes"? I may try my last ice fishing tomorrow.

I find your lack of faith disturbing. Next time you subject other readers to your negativity, try backing it up with some facts--none of which you had to help anyone out. The ice within a half Klick of Kinbrook Island was 19" thick, sorry for the slight exaggeration--I did say "About". As anyone should know, ice conditions may vary with depth and temperature. I admit I assumed anyone reading my report would understand two things: a) that the word "about" meant I was not giving the exact measurement b) that with the warm temperatures any vehicle on varied ice conditions would be crazy. There were about fifteen (I didn't count them so again, this is an estimate) other people on the ice that can confirm my measurement...as opposed to your--comment. I can agree with one thing you said, but I think people get hurt or killed by assuming anything. My report was for anyone who wanted to go fishing on Sunday and if you don't like ye can walk the plank matie!

24" of ice?? I was there last week and the ice was not even close to 24" This is how people can get hurt or even killed by assuming ice conditions based on bogus reports like this one.
