Anyone been out targeting crappie? Current water temp? Anyone have much luck for walleye out here? Sure don't see/hear much for reports on walleyes out here.

Isn't that crap lovely to see all over the ice? I fish Alice often and it is just a garbage dump on the ice there too. Real pigs leaving just about every piece of trash other than themselves on the ice. A lot of the crap comes from permanent shacks, not all, but you can see where the shack sat on the ice along with the collection of garbage. Next winter pictures of the shacks & the names on them will be taken and posted. Call these losers out and make them public.

Fished Bass Lake for crappie on Saturday. Did not find them. Caught small perch and bluegill. Spent a lot of time with my son cleaning up the garbage that was left on the ice by the disgusting slobs that frequent the lake over the winter. Whoever you are, your utter disrespect for the resource is appalling.

Crappie fisherman have been out in full force. They are still driving off of Hodag Park but the landing is getting rough to get out. Fishing has been good with the warm trend that we have been experiencing. Tip-Downs tipped with either minnows or Rosies have been the best. Watch your electronics to see what depth the fish are relating to.

Got out on Bass Lake for a couple hours yesterday. Found crappies and gills in 17 FOW. Most were suspended from 5 to 8 feet down. They bit sparingly from 3:00 to about 4:00(although I was marking lots of them). Then they turned on and hammered the jig on the way down. At about 5:30 they turned back off and that was it. Kept a dozen for dinner. Gold jig with a glow/green tail. But I think they would have bit anything once they started biting.

We fished the channel edges on Thunder yesterday. The crappies were spread out but we drilled a bunch of holes and just kept moving and picking them up one or two at a time. Most of the crappies were caught in 8 to 11 FOW. Size was on the small size, from 3" up to 10". Lots of small gills as well. They were up in the shallower water from 6 to 8 feet. Crappies were caught on jig/plastic. Gills on jig/plastic or spikes. We kept a few crappies for dinner last night and they fried up excellent!

Does anyone have an ice report? We are heading up to our cabin on Thunder and curious if I should bring the wheeler and sled or if ice conditions are good enough to take the truck out.

I moved away a year and half ago and want to come back and fish next week. Just wondering what the ice conditions are and how the bite on Peggy's slough? Thanks

Greetings my fellow fishermen. It's that time of year again. Time to get your ice fishing equipment out and go fishing. I just got done checking the ice on Peggy Slough. I drilled 7 holes and there was 3-3.5 inches of ice from the snowmobile trail all the way to the big bog. Walking out wasn't bad because there was about 2 inches of snow on top of the ice. I may try fishing tomorrow before the storm rolls in. Stay safe out there.

Hello, we live on Okauchee lake by Milwaukee and are heading up in September for a long weekend. Are there walleyes to be caught in boom or on the river somewhere? Thanks for any insight.

There will always be fish that do not make it through the winter. Some will also be fish that die after being released while ice fishing. I can assure you that Boom is alive and well this spring season!!

I would say that the dead panfish we've been seeing is a result of the very bad winter we had. I'd imagine that when the ice was 3ft thick that it cut off a lot of the oxygen, especially in the shallower areas of the lake & river.

Also I would say it might have something to do with all the garbage and pollutants that the lazy ice fishermen left behind. I mean what it so hard about picking up your trash from ice fishing, and most of it comes from the guys that have the stupid permanent shacks!

I noticed a few dead bluegill too last weekend when I was putting in my pier. It's not something I'm used to seeing on the lake. Any idea what might have caused it?
