    Went on Saturday in Harrison County. Deep Farm pond (30' max depth) and we were sitting on 8" of ice. Edges are getting really iffy I'd say. Shallow pond will have less ice. Especially if exposed to wind and direct sunlight. We caught 4 crappie and a bunch of gills. Steady fishing but not hammering them by any means.

    Had at least 8" on a shallow farm pond on Sunday. Slayed some big crappies.
