Ice Fished Ballston Lake

The forecast was calling for winds up to 25 miles-per-hour. Not to be dissuaded, we headed out early this morning. The weather was reasonably warm, and got progressively windier throughout the day but was not too bad. We fished our usual spot, and did not have a lot of luck. We caught a couple of medium-small perch, a bass, and a few sunfish. We were operating on the idea that it's early in the season and not really cold, so the fish should be in the shallower water. After finding fewer fish than normal, M started augering holes in deeper water. As we got out to 20+ feet of water we started finding more fish, just when it was time to pack everything up and head home. Here is a picture of me holding our smallest catch of the day:
