Mr Bass,

That is the folly of the DNR to try to take a shallow lake prone to winter kill and try to make it a trophy lake. All those 7 1/2" gills that had to be thrown back last year because they were undersized and now all rotted instead of having been eaten.

They are trying the same stupidity on Eagle.

A friend took these photos at Boxhorn this week. Similar scenes reported along east shoreline. With a reported 30" ice depth, what survived?

Setting up a new kayak and went in at Boxhorn for a couple hours right before dark. Thousands and thousands of dead fish. Mostly tiny fish about finger size gills and bass. Plenty of bigger gills as well. Some bass but not many of the 15" and above size. No northerns that I saw. Went up to shoreline to the first deep island hole and was never ot of sight dead fish. The decaying mess was of a volume that I wasn't prepared for. Everyone was hoping for a spotty winter kill but I fear it might have been on a larger scale then we had hoped. I'm worried to say the least.

Conditions: Sunny
YES ! ! ! the big lake issssssss open...

Bass Bay is clogged by water filled ice.. a good blow/rain will have it open. but for now only the edge is open..

THAT was me ! !

I only marked a few fish in one channel.. no bites although there were a few fish surfacing...

today was more of a look rather then a serious fishing trip..

My jig and red spikes didn't work today..

IT WAS GREAT being in the boat again ! ! !

FISHING REPORT

Ice Depth: 15" Conditions: Partly Sunny Air Temp: 36° - 40° F Water Temp: Below 40° F
Out in the Marsh recently and also on March 15th in the same general area fishing for pan fish. Did catch a limit of nice bluegills and Crappies as well as perch. Oxygen levels were good and plenty of fish of all sizes. Great news as I was worried like all my fellow fishermen that the marsh was all dead from this brutal winter. Growing up on this lake I saw plenty of changes but as always only a partial freeze out in specific areas. So wonderful news for all !! Also accidently caught quite a few nice size bass on the jig rods. Cant wait for open water season now ! Good fishing to all.

I wouldn't chance it either and when I was younger I did drive through the marsh which is a terrible idea since the sun beats on that for so long and melts the ice around the stalks and that last bend to the bay can be fine one day and open the next I know that for a fact!

When I was out last weekend I did not see a path cut through the cattails and I also put the rear tire of the dirt bike through the ice. I put the whole thing last winter in the same exact spot...

Popper,

Is there a bypass around the bad spot by the cut this year that is safe?
