Sunday morning bays had developed a skim layer of ice AGAIN The weather this year has been so inconsistent, the worse winter for ice fishing i have seen in years. Hoping the spring is better need warm water! Oh by the way ONLY caught 2 perch and a catfish last weekend

Fished all weekend. Targeted perch and gills. Searched deep and shallow.  Rock,sand and mud. Finally found fish today. Used orange ice jigs. Water with current was the key. 3ft. Nothing huge, just nice medium sized fish. 6/7 in perch and 7- 8 in gills.  Wow what a nice weekend! And the sunburn hurts! Lol. Enough fish for a good Sunday dinner! Tight lines!

Fished Look Out Point 10 til 3. Lots of little perch and a few gills mixed in. Caught 3 sea donkeys and a 12" sucker. Had one other carp break me off. Making ice all day.....you'll probably only have the next 2 days to fish here. This warm up will kill the ice.

been a stellar season so far. so decided to hit the lake that go tme hooked years ago. for the 2nd time this season. i ended up realizing why i bought a gas auger. drilled 20 or 30 maybe 40 holes. fishing the north east sideid say 4 what most would keep gills 3 8' perch and enough dinks to feed a small village??? perch where ripping my jigs up lures and jr jig tails. left at dark not really sure what to do to weed out the small fish just hope 3 years from now it picks up. headed to RED lake MN next week so no reason to get upset.
