Jojo...yeah, they're out on the river.  They're Nuts with a capital "N."  The pic was taken about 2:30 Tues P.M. from the small field that is just to the right of the Blue Water Marina launch ramp looking toward the Huntley (Ferry Rd?).  I was on my way to check out the kayak launch ramp & saw them out there.  I think the guy on the left was delirious from the cold, otherwise he would've been in a shelter.  By the way, I never bothered to walk out there to check the thickness.

Thank you for not checking, John!  I like you breathing!

 The ice can build a good thickness there (at least it used to) I'm not sure how the ice builds now? Years ago I went out there quite a bit, I used to go with the guys from the NRAA.  It can be really, really good for jumbo perch. We also iced Northerns and the occasional Carp from that area.

Mike...WOW!! I used to ice fish a lot myself (Pinehurst, Sturgeon Pt) & usually felt goosey about going into the wild cold yonder but I always thought that with the moving water, that ice fishing on the river would be dicey.  The only time I ever ice fished on top of moving water was years ago when the Catt froze near the Irving boat launch & here we are, talking with an ex-Niagara ice fisherman.  You're like an urban legend.  Thanks for the info & will have to try for perch there after the thaw.

Carl..25 perch is a beautiful catch any day of the week.  Way to go!!  Do you think it might have something to do with the coke ovens shutting down?  I remember seeing some people out near the South Gap one year, & I don't remember if it was last year or the year before, but when the coke ovens were putting out warm water, it was suicide to even think about going there.
