FISHING REPORT
2/7/16 2:54 PM CST
Ice Depth: 13" Conditions: Partly Sunny
2/6/16 My buddies backed out on going out to lake wazee so I came out here instead. Fished from 6:30 to noon. Set up on the bottom/edge of a hump. was in about 15 ft of water. The perch bite was very good right after sunrise. The bite died out around noon so I left. I didn't feel like cleaning fish so it was a catch and release day. So all the fish I caught are still there for anyone who wants to catch them. I caught my personal best perch. Got a 13" perch, biggest perch I've seen. Between 7am - 9am I got between 20 - 25 perch. Most of them were dinks. But 5 of them were between 9" - 13". I got a few crappies, 4" - 6". Got 1 very nice gill (palm size). It was hard at first to get them to bite but once I figure out what they wanted and how they wanted the bait it was just bait after bait. I hooked a minnow alive or dead onto a tungsten jig. Send the bait down about 1 - 2 ft off bottom. Once the fish comes up I pull the jig another 1 - 2 ft, letting them follow. Then stop the jig. The fish will follow and then as the jig stopped they took it. This seems to work for me. It looked like they wanted to chase a little bit. I had a very small spoon with a live minnow on it on my other rod (just dead sticking it). They will come up and look at it and then run back down. Hope this helps you fisherman get on some fish.

I am new to the area and have not ice fished much in the last 8 years. I do have all the equipment though. I was just hoping someone could give me some direction out here. Even if anyone wants to hook up and go would be great. Any help would be very appreciated, Like my hunting I am into mature fish and usually practice catch and release. Just love to get back into it in this area. I like to fish pan fish and walleye.

Thanks Tom

Hot bite off of Schafer's landing. Fish were very active. Lots of small ones but if you are willing to weed through them there's some good keepers.

The lake was crazy yesterday with the derby going. Couldn't fish all day so I didn't get in the derby but did get up early to try my hand for a few hours. I was on the ice by 5:30 and marked lots of fish but the bit was slooooow at best. By mid morning was I was able to find some gills and probably could have caught a a decent mess of fish had I stayed. I tried to avoid the groups as much as possible which was tough on a day like this but ended up finding most of my fish in that 11-13' of water. Purple Lil Cecil tipped with one waxie ended up being my best bait.

Not a ton of action, but when I had it, it was great. 14" white crappie, and 5 black crappies all over 9"

I have fished down by the Airport on Fisherman Road and caught some Crappie, but it has been a very slow bite. Hoping the warmer weather this weekend will turn things up a bit. I was in 15 feet of water and good ice.
