Thinking of trying after work today. Just wondering how much water is on top of the ice with all this rain?

Best of luck, fh

Went out after perch Saturday morning 7:30-12:00pm. 30ft of water good action. Kept enough for a meal. Small tungsten jig and a gold Kastmaster tipped with spikes worked the best. Also caught a couple on a perch talker. They bit light barely moving the spring bobber! Caught a bonus 34in pike on the Kastmaster. Catching that on the perch pole was a trip! That fish moved the spring bobber! Fished Sunday for a couple hours before the game and took a few more home. Marked several but they were finicky!

Fished Monona this weekend.  Should have stayed home and played in the boat in the garage.  Fished Saturday in 35-45' of water looking for perch.  Drilled a couple dozen holes.  Saw fish on the vexilar, but no takers.  They'd look at the jig but no bites.

Spent Sunday morning with son looking for gills, crappie, or perch (or anything that would bite).  We tried from 5' to 25' of water on the west side of the lake.  Found exactly nothing.  One school of fish passed below us, stayed around for about 5 minutes but no biters, probably whitebass or small perch.  Disappointing to say the least.

Went out from Olbrich park last night around 630 pm. About 50 yards from shore, I fell through the top layer of ice into about 8-10" of water underneath. There was solid ice underneath, but not fun getting the boots wet. Keep an eye out if going out on the north end. Didn't stay out long. No flags.

Fished in 9' and 12' ft between 10-1230 with no avail. I'm new to the area so this lake is new to me. Can't believe I can see the bottom clearly in 12'! I'm use to Winnebago where is usually cloudy. Good luck everyone
