The marshy Hope Creek had slush ice on it yesterday morning. I could get my jig to go through slush ice in some areas. I set the jig about 6 or 7 feet under a weighted bobber and the few perch I caught were out in the middle/ channel of the river. Had to cast a long way, that's why I need the weighted bobber. It got pretty warm yesterday, and didn't get to cold last night, so the river might be clear of ice. I think the marina might still have some ice. Feels strange to post and not have fish to show. Maybe this morning I will catch enough fish for a picture. The yellow perch are slowly moving up the river in my opinion and should be pretty good fishing soon. Pretty warm week coming up.
