Well, it was my first time out on Wazee today and I finally found some fish! Had a couple tipups set out with fatheads just on bare hooks, set up the shanty turned on the sonar and saw lots of action about from the ice down to about 20 ft. Was in about 80 fow. First dropped a small hammered copper pimple down, a few pumps, and landed a NICE rainbow. Went out and set the tipups to about 6 ft under the ice, and had a flag right away - ripped the minnow right off the hook. Two more flags after. Tons more bites on some beaded spoons and jigging raps, missed 'em though. Great day out on Wazee. Snow is a pain to walk and drag gear through, but ah well. Good luck guys.

Cool thanks - been looking for a topo map of Wazee. Drove out there yesterday after work and saw three groups - 2 set up by "bluegill alley" dive area, and another guy fishing the cribs.

Hey thanks for the reply - were you guys jigging spoons, using any live bait or anything? Also, where is a good place to start location-wise on the lake? Thanks for the tip - it's much appreciated!

Also, a little off-topic, but are you familiar with any of the bogs/marshes around BRF? I'm new to the area and don't know any good ice spots really.

Take care guys and have a good weekend. I'd be out fishing if I didn't have to work in a half hour, haha.

When you fish Wazee.... a flasher (Vexilar) is a must. You are fishing a large column of water. When you see a fish mark on your flasher you can see where your bait is and raise or lower your bait to the location of the fish.

I fished with two friends last weekend. (one shack - very tight). We limited out on trout in three hours. We would have been lost without a flasher. Some trout came in just under the ice....others were in 40 FOW. Most were at 20 FOW. Lots of small trout caught. Largest was a rainbow - 15 1/2 in.

I havent found the walleye..... I've heard there are some large ones. The pan fish run small.

Hey guys,

Fished Wazee a few times last winter to no avail. Live right down the road about 4 miles away. How do you guys fish it? I know there is a long point that extends by the float dock near all the fish cribs - set up tipups and jigged around both of those structures with no results. I've heard there are some decent trout and I've seen some monster walleyes in the summer while scuba diving...just not sure where/how to catch them on ice. Thanks guys.

-Nate

We fished in about 15 to 25 fow and caught perch, bass, bluegill and one small brown trout. I'm really looking to find a decent map of the underwater structure and depth of Wazee. Anyone have any idea where to find one? I snorkeled this lake last summer and saw a huge fish. Not sure of the id but it had a trout profile. Thought it was a laker but not sure if any are in there.

thanks alot for the response bradd2! as for motor augers, yes you can....and we've fished here quite a bit now, we use swedish pimples with fatheads and have very good success. we catch them in 15-40 fow. for the fishing report, this was the slowest morning so far. only 1 nice rainbow this morning. guys around us weren't catching anything either. i went out to 75 fow just from curiosity, jigging 4 ft off the bottom and had something slam it! fought it for about 5 seconds and i think it got under a big boulder or something, snapped my line. pretty devastating. tight lines!

I'm fairly new to the area and have not fished this lake. Could anyone give any pointers on getting started? For instance, what type of bait i.e. fatheads vs. shiners? Tip-ups? What depths to set up in, etc? Any info would be valuable. Thanks.

Hey guys my brother went out there today said he hit the ice with his spud and almost lost it. The ice was way to thin to be on. guess were all stuck waiting cuz this is always one of the last lakes to freeze. Hope it gets cold soon this is my favorite lake to fish in the winter.
