Hello, I just recently moved into Madison and I was wonder about what time everyone thinks freeze up is gonna happen in the bay this year. Also I was wondering if there are any good pike numbers/size in the bay during ice fishing. Any tips would be appreciated too! (going back in the thread I've heard purple and white works?) Big Smile I'm mostly looking for panfish but I like setting up some tip ups now and again, mostly when I take out my nieces and nephews or someone else that doesn't like or have the discipline for jigging. I'm gonna try and make a few videos with my underwater camera too so If I do I'll put links in my fishing report for whoever is interested.

Came over from Wingra and fished my the railroad tracks. Couple of small bluegills and bass and 2 keeper gills. We used ice jigs with wax worms and gulp alive bits.

Drove by the Bay around 1030 am today. One fisherman with a few tip-ups on south shore, no one else on the entire bay. Check the Lake Monona thread.

Just got back from the bay, fished from 7am-noon. It was pretty slow out there, end up with 3 keeper gills, which we gave to another guy. Total for this trip was 14 fish;5 perch,8 bluegills, and 1 golden shiner. Power auger is sure a blessing with 27" of ice! Smile

Fished with the boy today early morning. Caught decent crappie, 10 inch right away at 6:30 and then not another crappie. Kept 6 bluegills and the crappie. Fished from 6:30 till 12:30. All on dark, black or purple jigs with 3 red spikes. Pretty slow day.

Got out a little later than I wanted Sunday. Fished the main bay from 9:30-1 with my sister, so the first 45 minutes of fishing was trying to help her out (we got a first timer here). Once she got the hang of it we did pretty well. Didn't need to hole hop much. Finding the weeds was the key, as it has been most of the year. We ended up with 30 between the 2 of us. Bottom of my palm to the tip of my index finger is 8 inches.

Great day out yesterday, lots of ice (12" plus), bite was slower, fished from 2:30 to dark, found 12 in the 7 1/2" and larger range to keep, had a nice guy hand me a crappie too. Thanks for that and stay safe everyone.
