Got on the ice! After the 2nd try! 1st try went to a channel on Cree Lake. Got both feet wet Soft spot on the shoreline. Went home and put on some dry stuff. Went to the South bay of Big Turkey Lake. 3-4 inches of good ice. Didn't do all that great - 4 big crappies and 4 or 5 bluegills. But I did get to go fishing. Saw a cool sight - 2 big otters running across the ice. First time I have seen otters in Indiana.
