Perch, Perch, and more Perch. Never seen Bangs produce like this before. Smallest jig and hook you can find hooked through the lips and let it sit,deadstick about 6" off the bottom. Sonar won't pick up the perch,literally on the bottom. Caught around 100 in the last week or so. They come in waves and weird move 20' away not a bite. Fishing 11 to 13' of water. Sometimes if finicky, minnow head with small small twitches. 55^ this Friday followed by a week of 40's, it might be over or near close fellas. Headed out today for another batch. Get the occasional crappie, bass, and bullhead.

Hi I'm new to lake-link and was hoping to get out tomorrow on the ice at bangs lake. Was wondering if anyone has been out and if they've had any luck. How thick is the ice? Any good areas I should be targeting? Thanks in advance!

Will

@kool Cook Park is the only safe spot to park on this lake anymore and it's a walk without snow on the ground so dragging a sled down the walk is not easy..., the other spots you mentioned are potential "get your truck towed" private property hit or miss spots. Behind docks, garbage and relieving ones self ruined that privilege. You might get lucky, I play it safe at Cook.

Went out on northside from 4-8:30. Fished in 16fow. The fishing started off good with gills and pumpkinseed on jigs tipped with waxies. As soon as it got dark the action slowed.Targeted crappie then and would pick up a few here and there on glow jig tipped with waxie or small minnow.Caught around 10 crappies wth biggest only being around 7". All fish still swimming. THE ICE IS NOT IN GREAT SHAPE AND CAUTION SHOULD BE USED.AT 8 A 4WHEELER WAS GOING ACROSS LAKE AND THE ICE WAS BREAKING AS IT DRIVING. YOU COULD HEAR IT AS IT WENT ALL THE WAY ACROSS. ICE AROUND US STARTED TO CRACK UP AFTER IT WENT BY.IT WAS TIME TO GET OFF.HAD ICE CRACKING UNDER FEET WHEN WALKING OFF.ICE IS NOT SAFE .BE CAREFULL. Tight lines JIM

Yes you can park at LVVA park. The thing is. Once you step into the park to access the lake.. You are trespassing. There are No Trespassing signs everywhere there. It is private property. While I have not been told of them enforcing this in some time. They could. Garbage and peeing by the parking area has been cause for concern to the residents of LVVA. The LVVA tournament gets permission from The LVVA association. To use the park and its parking area.

Ice was gone or very thin going out from Cook park and than all the holes I drilled were at about 8 inches with clear ice and cracking every where you would walk, not for the weak hearted for sure. I fished with tipups for about 2 hours with nothing and called it a day after too many cracks ripped between my feet.

@joey you can park at cook park on the west side off main street just before the blinking yellow light by the school, behind docks bar and gtill on the east side, at the Wauconda park district beach house off Murphy street right before Lindys on the south side and on the north side I believe they let you park in the LVVA association parking spots (edgewater pwky) in the winter, at least at the tourney last week they did.
