Havent been out there this year yet, but in the past we have had some good luck with crappies the first half hour of light and last half hour. Gills were more common throughout the day and also a lot of tiny perch the last few times. Its a fun little spot to fish once in while, but because its a small spot we tend to only fish it a couple times a year when we want to get away from the crowded other lakes. One year a guy actually caught a 28in walleye out of there i heard. more than like someone probably put that fish in the lake I'm guessing. good luck!

I should have posted last week since I asked the question about ice depth myself. Last Saturday and Sunday I fished George and there was 5-6 inches then, even in the center on 18 feet of water. Caught some gills and crappies both days, but the bites were light. I marked plenty of fish on the Vex, but more lookers than takers. I was fishing with white spikes and an orange jig. My dad fished another lake with waxies and limited out on gills. Thinking waxies would be worth a try on George. It's always peaceful out there. I like fishing some smaller lakes where you don't have to truck a mile to get to a spot. Good luck!

i'm about to head out there in a few with a spud to check the depths, i'll check off of P landing and from the west shoreline as well. I will keep you guys posted.

Update. Went about 100yds from P shore and had about 6inches of solid ice. It's good to go. Saw a blue 2 man clash ack setup from the west side and holes all over

Stopped by Lake George yesterday. Looks like good ice. Wondering if anyone has been out to test it since those couple of warm days / rain early in the week. I was alone and not prepared to step more than 10 feet out. Wish I had brought a buddy, a spud bar and some rope. Anxious to get out, but only if it's safe.

Has anyone been out to Lake George this spring? How has the Perch population been over the last few years. I don't recall the last time I fished this lake.

I've caught a few of those in George as well. That's what I assumed. They were both that same size.

Fishing was slow me and my 2 boys managed a couple gills and 9 flags in 2hrs this afternoon. Caught 5 bass largest 16in all released. Also caught wat I think is a grass pickerel.

gill fever, I would say yes the black spots are on the uptick. On average I would say only one in 10 fish is bad with black spots, and you might see a couple on a fillet here and there. I would also say you find the white worms in about 1 in 10 but not many worms in a fish. do a computer search on black spots if you want the specifics. Yes it won't hurt you, but I prefer not to eat them. crappies are always clean (same as everywhere)

nice catch

I only ever get skunked on this horrible lake Wink

That's a fantastic catch - congrats! I was out there earlier this morning and the bite was NOT on. I moved around several times and only caught a small perch. Last Saturday, I kept 12 large gills. To answer your question, the spots are harmless. You find this in many lakes, but once the fish are fried, it's no big deal. It's a small parasite (grub), but don't let that scare you off. It's way more common that you might think.

Just wondering if this lake is the one with pride of America campground on it? Used to camp there years ago

A good day to be on George. My daughter and I caught about 40 and kept these. Has anyone else noticed the spots on the fillets? It seems to be affecting more and more fish in George. Are these safe to eat?

fishing is horrible here. don't waste your time. Must be just bored locals with no better place to go. if you want to catch fish, go to fox lake with the other 3,000 people Lips Sealed Lips Sealed

on a serious note:i am amazed at the number of people who waste their time with tip ups out here. And I will say that after a few power augers start going crazy or first ice is over this lake can get very tough to fish.

I fished Lake George the last two Sundays. Both times I counted 7 ice shanties, plus mine, so yes -- there has been good activity with people fishing out there. I caught a number of small to border-line keeper perch (all went back in) and the first Sunday out, I caught 4 keeper gills and several smaller ones. Others told me both times that they had done well, usually keeping a dozen or more gills. Those that were able to find the crappies, also did well. Interestingly, a nice gentlemen I spoke with while coming off the ice this weekend told me while he did well this time, he will not return after January 1 because in his experience "this lake just shuts down for some reason." Ironically, that has also been my experience. I will say though that it's a nice lake to fish and it's more fun when others are out too. I have fished Lake George when I've been the only one out and I haven't done well at those times, probably a sign that the lake has "shut down" past the great first ice. How are others doing on the bite?
