Fished the bay this afternoon. Very slow bite. Had to hole hop to put any numbers together. Used purple plastic and caught mostly small fish but did catch enough decent gills for a fry. Tito39

There are times I fish and think I've got to be the dumbest one for even being out. Drove by the bay around 4pm today thinking there is no way anybody would be out ice fishing with no shelter. Sure enough there's a guy out there with his back to the wind sitting on a five gallon bucket. I know I'm smarter than at least one guy today. Good luck nut cases. Rat.

Got out last night right after work, showed up around 3:45 PM drilled a few holes in one of my favorite spots and the fish were so tight lipped.  Tried about 8 or so different plastics from the usual setup.  Caught only 3 bluegill not a single crappie!  Time to change my tactics up a little bit, weather fluctuation makes it a little tricky.  Hope everyone else is having some decent luck.

Starting to see more folks moving to the main lake and walking out from Ollin Park.  Stay safe tight lines.

Just hoping to get a little insight from some long time anglers in the area. Never fished the lakes here as I'm from up by Wausau but I work down here and will be moving in the spring. For now though I'd like to get some ice fishing in so if anyone feels like helping a brother out and sending some advice my way that would be much appreciated. ( locations, bait, presentation, etc...)

Fillet Show- Buddy and I went out there 12-17-16 we released about 12 8"+ gills. We are definently in the minority of the others out on the Bay. I'm sure those gills were re caught and eaten already. I always say if you like fishing certain spots better at least throw some of the better ones back so you have some for next time. Especially the big ones. At the same time Monona and the Chain seems to be a lake  system that sustains pretty well. Always gonna be better years than others.
