    I was thinking you would look for fish and then set up.

    That would be the more intelligent thing to do. We have a foot or more of snow on top of 30-36 inches of ice and have to be honest, I'm not sure I could get reliable readings. I think as long as there is water on the bare ice, it would work.

    I end up drilling 5-20 holes and then bounce around. Don't jig for more than a few-10 minutes in each hole. Thursday I never found bait except for one spot and they were in and out. Sunday I had fish on the flasher from the time I dropped the jig down until we left.
    I've already told you more than I know.

    I've never tried it but think it should shoot o.k. through ice. Probably work best with a hockey puck transducer.

    If there is snow or terrible ice on top, we drill a little, pour a little water in, and shoot though the ice.
