They had palm rods I saw. They also kept everything. 

Mixed array yesterday as well 12-430 some drums, dinky striper, etc. Lots guys said they couldn't find em. We took the time to get on  em. Gotta keep moving out there to keep lines tight. But yes after seeing it during day water is open in spots. 

Guess my buddies owe me a trip now that I got them on fish. Until next time keep em tight 


Small jigs, small rods. The bitIs Is lite

Open water all over, not safe but hole is fishable. Slow, caught mixed bag with only half dozen keepers, most fish released. Keep seeing these Russian idiots pulling line by hand 30 fow and keeping 3.5 inch crappies and 4 inch whites... Wow. Speechless.

3 small crappie and 1 sheepshead in 15 FOW on minnows. We fished from 1-5:30 around the corner from Oak Park Lounge. We watched several fish swim by on the aqua view including a huge school of sheepshead. Ice was a little thin in spots.

 BEST WAY TO KNOW IS TO HEAD OUT!!!! if I was a betting man I'd say probably slow bite no bite, but the bar at home is stocked? But since I get out I'm sitting at oak park eating a pizza looking at a few crappie we caught and discussing our strippers then heading back out there like a couple of lizards. Because ice time only comes for a short time.  Tight lines at 6-7" ice. In 17-20fow with cigarette butts as bait

Went out from the lounge today 12-15 fow.  Fish were off today... 3 gills 2 crappie  1 catfish.  No great size.  

Fished from 730 to 12. Ice was good but a couple wet spots to avoid.  Anywhere from 4-6 inches of ice everywhere I checked.

Anyone going out tomorrow morning??  I'm looking to go in the morning but I've only fished this a couple times and want to make sure I'm not alone. I would guess the ice should freeze up enough tonight.  

I usually park at the bar.  Is there anywhere else to park??

I was on Pistakee Bay today and the ice is going bad FAST !
I started on 7" + or - of ice, but it was getting honeycombed quickly. My auger would cut the ice like soft cheese and then push up slush, not shavings...

Visited south Pistakee Bay and the ice is even worse. I sat on 5" of ice and watched it shrink down to 4" in a couple of hours.
Before I left, I jumped up and down a few feet from my holes and watched the water slosh around !

Standing water everywhere and huge "spider holes" are forming that are 5' to 10' in diameter. Ice looks real spooky...

I wouldn't step foot on that ice tomorrow.

Finally, I did measure the ice depth and did not "eyeball" it.

Rough morning out off oak lounge, 2 decent crappie and tons of cookie cutter whites.. I lost 2 rods on my way out. If anyone has them I'll but you a case of your choice. The Fenwick is special and the Abu is my son's. Doubt anyone will turn them back over. Talk about rough day

I'll keep the sheephead for a family member who eats them but in this case my buddy took them. I wouldn't know how they taste but I was talking to a guy who said as long as you do it right, you'd never know the difference from walleye. I'll only keep panfish and walleye.
