snuck out to lake george for 2 /12 hours. figured the fish would be on the feed in the snowstorm. That was wrong --most fish were very neutral to negative and you really had to work them. kept 10 for a meal, gills 7 1/4 to 8, crappies 8 3/4 to 9 1/4.

Fished around the hole Saturday morning for a few hours. 4 crappies and 2 gills. And 3 dink perch. Purple moon glow with spikes. Nothing on a live minnow. As the morning progressed what activity I had tapered off. Brutal cold.

Fished George mid-day Mon and Tue. Monday, plenty action. Light biters and many chasing on screen. Golden shiners, perch, gills, crappies, lm bass and 1 chain pickerel. Most small but, could have made a meal for the 2 of us if kept the bigger ones. Biggest gills in 20fow. Tue wind made it hard to detect lite bites. I only landed 1 skinny perch. Partner had a few little perch and crappies.
snuck out yesterday after that awesome replay touchdown reversal, fished 2:30 ish til 4p. fished about 40 holes and just could not find fish in 9 to 17 feet. Did catch 4 gills 6.5 inches to 7.5 inches and about 8 perch 4 to 8 inches. Would mark a couple fish in about every 6th hole. I did find some 3.5 inch ice in two different spots. Most ice was about 4 to 4.5 inches. I knew I should have made a big move about 30 minutes in, but I was limiting myself to where other people had fished... ice is still a little iffy for me
