took my too younger girls out yesterday 

went from 2-4 30

they did pretty good. took them awhile to get the feel to set the hook right away and keep tension on. after they did they started icing some nice 8 inch gills and one dandy pumpkin , just over 9

we only ended up with about 30 today as we had alot of tangles that had to be cut out and retied, then they got distracted sliding around on the ice so i got to fish a little then.


we were in about 10 feet on the weed edges, using waxies

all in all a nice day

Went out from 2 till 7. Very slow.Fished 15 fow on north side.Caught some 3" gills and a couple of 6" perch until it got dark. The got a couple of small crappies on minnow.

Some idiot out fishing on ice skates trying to give away 2 crappies that were way undersized.Found out later that he left them on ice. What a frigg'n waste.    

 The ice is starting to honeycone. Lots of cracking going on. Even though ice is 8" it looks weird with all the columns of air bubbles in it. Weather wont help with high's in the 40's for the next week.

Out the past 2 days right off the LVVA beach. In about 10 to12 feet of water with about a foot of ice. Didnt catch a thing. Used waxies, rosies, roaches, nothing bit. I feel like this lake is fished out. Whens the last time it was stocked? Ive been fishing here for years and always have this outcome. Your lucky if you catch a fish on bangs. Save your energy and time and set up shop somewhere else. I know I will until they stock it which they should be able to with these shanty fees they put out.

Fished a few spots today mostly dinks.  The map circled in the previous post by koolwater is a good indicator on where the open water is.  I was standing on about 5 inches when I took this photo and then gladly changed directions.  Most spots I fished were 8".  Just odd to me how the ice broke in the middle.  If you venture out, be safe.  No bananas!

Was out at Bangs today and there is open water in the spot I marked on the map in the attached photo.  This is just approximately were I seen it from where I was fishing so be careful in this area.

Sean you are correct.  My apologies.  $25 fee for portable shelters is good for the season.  UFCreel, Good point about measuring fish on Bangs.  Thanks for the reminder.

That's entirely incorrect.  If you keep a shanty on the ice (permanent) all ice fishing season, it's $45.  If you take your shanty with you and remove it from the ice each time, it's $25 for the season.

If you fish there a lot, it's not bad.  If you fish there once or twice like me, it's bad.
