MOON PHASE (98%)
Waning Gibbous

Was out yesterday caught panfish all throughout the day. Released a couple gills that were pushing 10in. Towards the end of the day found a school of crappie got fun for awhile released most of them. Also got one undersized walleye and a few dink perch. My advice would be stay away from any groups of people and stay moving to find the most active fish

Thanks a Million Jeff!

Got any tips you'd like to share? My success has been marginal, at best, so far this season. Seems like it's getting tougher to find the fish out there. Or the fish are just a whole lot more finicky than they used to be.

I was just out and the ice is 10 to 12 inches throughout the whole lake. I think the open water they were seeing was just the rain on top of the ice.

Good luck out there, been some nice gills caught in the last few days

Hoping somebody can please give me a report on ice conditions before Sunday?

I live a little over an hour away and my in-laws(that don't fish), told me the other day, that the ice was covered with water and that there's open water all around the shorelines. Due to the past warm weather and/or rain that they had. They live close to the west end and I'm hoping it's ONLY the west end where conditions aren't favorable for some ice fishing.

Any help would be truly appreciated!
Thanks In Advance!

My daughter and i went out this afternoon and poked a couple holes by the rock pile. She got her first fish through the ice, very exciting, we got a few small gills and 2 bass one was 16 the other 14.

Didnt see many people out braving the cold. Hoping for a little warmer weather tomorrow

guests can without the lot owner with an amenity pass and pay 5 dollars at the gate for a fishing pass. Lot owner does need to be within talking distance to fish at night. Make sure to check the back of the fishing pass for the regulations for guests because they are different

No its for lot owners and their guests only. 

Anyone fishing is supposed to have a lot owner with them at all times. 

I heard that security was going to start cracking down on it also.

Fished off the mouth of Tamarack today. Found the fish in 25 ft of water resting between the 20-25ft mark. Didn't think they would be that deep initially, but the camera doesn't lie. Good bite once we found them. Got a good view of the rocks in the old creek bed also.

Dockknocker, thanks for the heads up. I am going to try that wet lands area maybe next weekend. I heard you have to hike towards the back where it will begin to get deeper which is closer to the pec river. They said if we had high waters lately then fish could've gotten in. At this point I'm willing to try anything out.
