Hi Crew: Enjoy following the chat on the forum. I don't usually post until ice season because I don't make it Indiana-way that much the rest of the year and have nothing productive to share. Gosh, tis the season but I've got a real bad case of "cabin fever", and according to the weather "doctors", it looks like it will get worse before it gets better! From NW Ohio the only fishing reports really just keep coming from Indian Lake on saugeye, crappie & perch ( has the most steady reports) but Indian is a 1/2 hr. south of Lima yet so it's a long drive. Up in Michigan the only fair reports (from friends & www.michigansportsman.com) are that without ice the perch have remained in around the cuts and marinas on Saginaw Bay. Thanks folks for keeping up a great forum and Merry Christmas!!!
