Nice morning on Ripley in my kayak. On the water just before sunrise. Found several schools of gills in the shallows. Nice numbers. Decent size. Fishing with redworms on a slip bobber. Kept about 8 for supper and the other 30 -40 are still swimming.

Only one other boat fishing on the lake when I left. Driving home by 10:00.

Late report from Friday. Bite was slow for most of the day. Was about to call it a day when this 19 1/2 incher came by. Nice day with calm winds.

I am going to take a group of older boy scouts out for their first ice fishing trip. I have not done this in years-so any help would be greatly appreciated. Many of these boys have never ice fished and some have never even been fishing. would like to give them a good experience. Was thinking rock lake but ripley has better size panfish in my experience. Looking for a good site to try for crappies or gills on a sunday afternoon as well as suggested bait. Also curious if anyone ever catches pike here-i fish this lake in the spring but have never caught one here. Will be happy to give tips on lakes i fish in the spring summer in exchange.

For bait try the J&T Bait Shanty on Marina lane. They are nice people doing a great job of rebuilding a bad reputation left by a previous owner. They have waxies, spikes, and minnows of all sizes. I still have some shiners swimming after 8 days. Just change the water and keep them aerated.

Good luck out there.

Was out from noon to dark on Ripley and Caught 6 3 inch perch. Also had tip-ups out and not a single flag. Crying. It was raining on and off so wondering if that had anything to do with the bite because I didn't see anyone else catching anything. Was pretty disappointed Sad

Fished yesterday. Very slow. I was there over 7 hours and only got 5 gills and nothing on tip ups. Decent size though. Used chartreuse tungsten jig with waxies just a little off bottom. Caught 1 then waited 2 hours then got 2 more right away then 30 minutes later another than 3 hours later another.
