MOON PHASE (25%)
Waning Crescent

CONDITIONS
Foggy

ICE DEPTH
18 inches

AIR TEMP
36° - 40° F

WATER TEMP
Below 40° F

Got out around 8:00 AM 1/21. Set up 3 tip ups and managed 3 flags. I got robbed on one and pulled in two extremely skinny pike, both around 20" (par for course on Wheeler). Went back out at 1:00 and didn't get one flag (not much action with other groups around me either).

It was a pretty extreme weather day with dense fog, periods of rain, and near 40 degree temp. Not your typical January day for weather.

Not sure if it's the competition with the abundance of bass, overfishing, or the milfoil but the pike fishing is definitely not what it used to be here. I am probably going to stick to some other lakes I know with a healthier pike population.

Any fish action in the past week? Plan on doing some jigging for the annual fishery, and looking to find some crappie, gills, walleye and perch. Anybody been marking or catching any of these?
