While the vast majority of the "cars" south and east of the bridge are for the golf course there are people who fish along Punoqua from shore for walleye and perch in the spring and cats during the summer. The google maps app actually shows 4 boats, err I mean cars, in the last fishable spot before the golf course. "Boats" that are northwest and west of the main gap I'll assume (visualize in my mind) you mean are ones fishing Sunset (northside) and Oakwood (southside) points and are usually fishing walleye and perch but you never really know what you will pull up. Could be sheeps, cats, gills, etc. etc. Tight lines.

Is there any chance of walking off the South shore tomorrow I have doubts?

Went out yesterday. The ice has softened. Shoreline is starting to go. Had maybe 10inches of ice. Caught a mixed bag of whitebass, crappie, and walleye. Action wasn't hot and heavy but fairly consistent. Used smaller spoons and rapalas with spikes.

Was a couple of four wheelers out still, although I would not recommend that. With these temperatures, not many days left of walkable ice.

Here's a video from this weekend fishing on Lake Butte Des Morts. All in all it was a success. We managed to catch a mix of whitebass, crappie, and walleye. We were using jigging raps and small spoons with no bait. We all kept a bucket of fish and also helped fill pails for others. It's hard to beat a day like this out on the ice.

Well, I made it out Saturday, went out to 8-9 FOW straight off Sand Pit Road. Fished for a couple hours without marking a single fish. Lure didn't matter at this point, no fish in my area. Quickly realized the need to move, move, move. I was on foot so limited mobility there. Based on the ice I covered, I could have drove my SUV out. Large group fishing to the east, witnessed plenty of atv and vehicle traffic on the lake, mainly going towards the group towards the east. I'll give another try next year Smile

Not trying to discourage you...just be safe in the areas I mentioned. I had heard they got some on Friday as well, but Saturday was a lot tougher...probably because the fish were passing through.
