Re: End of the Ice Season?
My thoughts- If the water is a small impoundment, I wouldn't chance it unless as Mountain Man stated, it was High Point. Big waters like Erie or Pyme are other options. Wilhelm, maybe. In any event, one has to consider local weather patterns and the size of the waterway. Local knowledge, bait shops & anglers, is indispensable. The other option of course, if you don't mind packing all of your gear, taking a drive and drilling a few exploratory holes.
