Ice Depth: 8" Conditions: Cloudy Air Temp: 16° - 20° F
Ain,t been out much this winter health issues mostly get out maybe 1 or 2 times a week ,lot more than my Doctor wants but might be my last winter when I can get out alone anyway, been fishing close to the house mostly fishing has been good to bad ,good bite but not allot of size. and 2 to 3 hours is about all I can handle ,without getting chilled the ice varies allot by the house this year have from 2 inches over the spring to 14 out in mid lake most of it appears to be maybe 8 to nine inches where I am fishing any way the fish are biting when you find them both shallow and deep for me ,not allot of info here but can't get up and go if feeling crowded ,red is the hot color this winter for me anyway, would not post this except don't see many posts about fishing here, more people fishing promotes more fish found ,we don't have 10% of the ice fisherman we did when I was 20 and the fishing is as good as ever except for size. Bring an auger or stay home, for now......

Fishing has been pretty steady out there lately. A lot of quality pan fish and a few walleyes here and there. Deeper breaks and points have been my best bet. Small glow green jigs with Jr's Jig Tails and a waxie. Also a few area lakes are spitting out some very nice pike. We have a great fishery for them and we release all of the big ones to reproduce and let others have the same thrill of catching. Here are a few pics from trips this week that I thought were pretty cool and you guys would enjoy.

Watched a snowmobile go in on Marie yesterday and there was a hole from another machine that had gone in.. All along the same pressure crack. Ice was around 8" except around the crack, only 3-4". Be safe out there..

Crystal Lake, IL – The Andrea Lynn Cancer Fund invites experienced and novice ice fishermen alike to enjoy a day of family-friendlyice Fishing on Bangs Lake in Wauconda during the Annual Walk on Water Ice Fishing Derby on Saturday, February 7, 2015, starting at 7:00 a.m. Registration now open online atwww.andrealynn.org/ice.

More than 2 million people in the United States are diagnosed with cancer each year. The Andrea Lynn Cancer Fund focuses on the family, providing for an array of needs and support to those suffering with the hardships of cancer. Following diagnosis and throughout the battle against cancer, there are many obstacles that are often unknown and unmentioned, including the stress of treatment, care, or losing a loved one’s income, that make dealing with cancer more difficult. The Andrea Lynn Cancer Fund strives to help with these burdens to get families back on track so they can spend more time focusing on their loved ones.

The Andrea Lynn Cancer Fund was established in 2006 in the memory of Andrea Lynn Beckwith, who lost her battle with colon cancer in 1993. Her children, Brent and Shane Beckwith and Karie Nash, along with a close-knit group of family, friends and supporters, head up the board of directors for the charity. For more information about the organization, please visit the Andrea Lynn Cancer Fund website atwww.andrealynn.org.
