Hi Guys and Girls...  Hoping after our brief cool down Bangs is all locked up nice and tight again?  Puddles either drained and/or re-froze and ready for the next weekend warmup and hopefully an LVVA ice derby?  If anyone has a visual or been out drilling since PointWellMade made it out let us know please and thanks..

Ice seems to be holding up pretty well.  Lots of water on top, but we still have a solid 10 inches of ice as of 1:00 p.m. Hopefully the warm air this afternoon does not do too much damage.  Got some decent perch and gills in 10 fow.  Lots of small perch too.  No crappies.  All fish caught on waxies today near bottom.

Tried out a new spot today  away from my 16ft hole.  went to other side of lake behind Docks. We set 5 tip ups in a line in 5ft of water. One northern hit but got off at the bottom of hole.  KILLED the perch in 12 feet of water. Had about 1 to 1.5 feet of weeds off the bottom. Thought regulation  was 10 inches for perch so we threw like 15 back that were like 8 and 9inch. Found out regulation is 6 inch so we started keeping em. Hitting about 1 to 2 feet above weeds. Waxies took the crown today by far.  Taste GREAT!!

Got on lake at 1 and fished till 10. Dead sea until 4:30 then the screen lit up. Non stop crappie's til i left. Biggest being 9.5" smallest 3". I fished in 15 fow. Fish for the most part were on bottom. Had to bring bait up a foot to get them to hit. There were a few times fish were stacked between 8' to 15'. I was using a glow teardrop tipped with small minnow on 1 rod and a glow rat finkie tipped with waxie. Both set ups caught fish. A little windy but nice not to be freezing. Ice had some slushy spots but not bad. Creepers a must. Tight Lines JIM

Fished from 2 till 8 on Sunday in 15fow . Before dusk targeted gills with teardrop tipped with waxie. Tried different colors with same result, only a few bites.When it started to get dark around 4:30 switched to glow jig and minnow. Had some decent action but nothing of size with biggest at 9 3/4. You had to work the fish to get them to bite. Fish were on bottom and would hit when bringing bait up a foot or two.Wore different boots today and had no problems with creepers which were a must . Police were out again issuing tickets. Thight Lines Jim

First time out this year, Fished from 2:30 - 7:30 in 15 fow. picked up some bluegills on teardrop tipped with waxie. biggest about 8". when it started to get dark switched to glow jig and minnow for crappies. got about 6 with nothing bigger then 9". Wasn't on lake for more then 10 minutes before i got checked for permit and licence. Very nice guy. The ice is flat and solid, Creepers are a must. Had mine on but they didn't work because i wore boots that had a higher arch and spikes barely touched ice. Won't be wearing those out again fishing.My buddy had to pull in shelter with me sitting on it. Great to be on ice again. Tight Lines Jim
