Whoever took my buoy out of the river, I hope you enjoy it.

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!

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.
