Water clarity good (6-9 feet visibility).  Healthy ice 5-7 inches.  Pressure ridge extending north from Marina to mouth of Aggie Bay opened up throughout the day.  20 foot seams of open water by afternoon.  Be mindful out there.  

Crappie in 30 feet of water suspended at 15-20 feet.  Crappie were slamming 5mm – 1/18oz tungsten jig with white Maki plastic grubs and minnows, as well as 1/32 – 1/8oz flutter spoons and leach spoons with no bait or grub.  Crappie pretty much non-stop, specifically in the afternoon.  Smallmouth bass eating 1/8 oz spoons and jigging raps.  Smaller walleye in 25-30 feet cruising right on bottom easily motivated by spoons.  White.  Wonderbread.  Fire Tiger.  The random cruising northern pike 5-10 feet below the ice attacking spoons and minnows of various sizes and colors.
