The ice fishing on Lake Erie has been pretty good this season. From what I hear, fishermen have been able to catch quite a few crappie, smelt and perch. For those who don't have the patience to wait to get home to cook your catch, this guy may have the a few idea for you.

The forecast calls for another warm up this weekend. It will be the third January thaw this winter! However, the die hard fishermen have been set up for most of the season along the shores of lake Erie. The Small Boat Harbor seems to be the most popular for those that want most pan fish.

Grab your warm clothes and fishing gear and don't forget the frying pan! There is plenty of winter left and plenty of good fishing ahead!
