Rsld 5 LMB. no blue gill or crappie. most perch on small jigs/waxies only 2 on minnows. Ice deteriorated rapidly during the day.

Drive by the lake every day seems to be fewer and fewer people out everyday. I thought the panfish would be moving into the shallows on lake O by now. Ive been fishing stoddard and Genoa lately. The bite has definitely picked up. Wondering what the report here is?

Ice Depth: 36" Conditions: Snowing Air Temp: 11° - 15° F
Out from 10:00 to 3:30, Crappies were really active 1st hour & half, 3 from 12 to 13", another 15 or so under 9". Hammered copper/red spoon with minnow head only bait they would take. 2 small perch, lots of small bluegills, only 4 worth keeping. Small gold checki(sp) with motor oil plastic was most effective. Fish shut down when the snow started. 15 to 18 FOW, fish @ 10 to 15.

That is OK Scarbo1, I did have a great time on the ice here, The best ice fishing I have ever had. I am going to try and plan a trip next winter or spring, would love to get on this lake for the gill or crappie spawn. My 15 year old son came down one weekend and fished with me. He was amazed by the amount of fish on the camera. Maybe next time, when I come back I will give you a shout and maybe then we can do some fishing. I heard so many guys on the ice saying the fishing was horrible, if that is the case I can not imagine what good is. Cool

Spent the last six weeks training here in Onalaska. Ice fished Lake Onalaska every Sunday and Monday. The fishing has been great as well as everyone I have met. Every trip had resulted in 17 to my limit, however it was an all day affair, with a lot of small ones. Today I got my limit. They would not hit waxies, I was using a banana jig purple and white tipped with red spikes. lite motion jigs, then stopped and raise slow worked well on the gills. Aggressive jigging when a crappie showed up. I have never seen so many gills and crappie on my camera. Only a few perch, most of them were lookers. Thank You Lake Onalaska for helping me pass time. The pic was my first day on the lake, not bad for going out with no knowledge of the lake. Big Smile

Auger extension highly recommended. I only had an inch to spare with my Eskimo Mako without one. Fish bite is still slow. Perch come by in schools so action was spotty.

If you can't auger to 35 inches….stay home! I buried my Lazer beyond the drill chuck and no water.

Tried out by Red Pines today. Five keepers coming in on both waxie and Rosie's. Action was pretty slow, hopefully it only starts getting better from here on out!

Can anyone help direct me to find some perch out on the lake? I am getting a little burnt out on the gills and small crappies. Any help is appreciated!
