Fish came n went consistently all day long. Light spike of activity before dark. Caught 4 nice keepers between the 2 of us and also at least 10 others. Fished all day.
Lake Wazee, Jackson County

Ice is a solid 7 inches where I was at this morning.
Got there at sunrise and fished for a few hours. Bite was HOT first couple hours, small spoons with minnow heads. Mainly all brown trout with a few very nice rainbows mixed in. All fish were around the 12 inch mark, with one rainbow being 15 inches. 80 fow suspended 15-25 feet under the ice. Left with my limit, caught around 25 fish today.
Go get em'!
Agreed. Gotta be carefull here. Wazee is always one of the last to freeze up. Havent been over there to check, but i can confidently say its not even close yet. Gotta give it time, ill probably go check the lakes progress next weekend. Definetly a lake you should be bringing a spud with for its early ice.

I had the day off, so I made a trip over on such a beautiful day. I marked a lot of fish and I ended up putting one in the boat. I had plenty of hits, but i was using a rod with mono and the hook sets are just not good enough to stick a fish in 120 fow. Several just fell off on the way up. I should have switched over to my lake trout rig, but I was just out goofin' around.
The fish were suspended in 120 fow, 40 to 90 feet down. I played "keep away", just like lake trout, and they would chase it down. Good practice for lakers on Big Green this winter.
Cafe_Racer, there are no catfish in the lake. Went out with the kayaks about a week ago and caught some nice rainbows about 35-40 feet down. Make sure you take your time to reel them in since they are pretty deep. Also the pan fish are everywhere in the shallows, no big ones but some to keep the kids entertained. Could not locate bass or walleye though, I think the population is dwindling for them.
