Any specific areas you would recommend for walleye/perch on the TFF? I will be heading up there tomorrow with a friend of mine. Looking for perch and walleye. Thanks for the help if you are able to provide some.

FISHING REPORT
2/20/15 9:54 PM CST
Ice Depth: 24" Conditions: Partly Sunny Air Temp: 0° - 5° F Water Temp: Below 40° F
Fished yesterday with a group from Iowa in the afternoon. We had steady action all afternoon on tip ups but a lot of flags with minnows gone and no fish. I think we were getting bit by pan fish or small walleyes we did catch some rock bass and two bullheads, strange to catch them on the TFF yet alone on tip ups. We caught a few walleyes mostly 5-8' the pan fish bites were in deeper holes 15-20'.

Don't know if it got above zero yesterday but the wind laid down to nothing in the afternoon with the sun out and a campfire it was an enjoyable afternoon. Thanks for the trip Nick, hope to see you guys next year.

Unless the wind kicks up anyone wanting to drive off of fisherman's this weekend with a truck should be able to get out. You can thank the guy with the white truck, when we left the landing on snowmobiles there was a deep wind hardened drift when I came in it had been shoveled by hand, hope that guy caught a few fish!

Fished today and tomorrow with the mercer kids in the tournament on the Chetek chain ready to hit the sack. Where was high school ice fishing when I was a kid.

Hope the show is well attended good luck Mike.

Is the flowage at full capacity, or have they started lowering it for spring runoff. Thank you.

The "bite" seems to be slow everywhere in the Northwoods this year, but there has been some success with large crappies near Piney Island. There were some dandy walleyes being caught after last weeks fishing contest from 4:00 pm until an hour after dark.

Trucks, ATVs and snowmobiles are all traveling on the ice without too much trouble. Ice anglers should try to not set up their shelters or place their tip-ups on the marked snowmobile trails so we can share with all users.

The next ice fishing jamboree will be held on Saturday, February 28th, 2015 at Donners Bay Resort. This is sponsored by the Turtle-Flambeau Flowage Association with the proceeds going to the promotion and enhancement of the TFF.

Ice Depth: 16" Conditions: Partly Sunny
The high school winning team in the Donner's bay tournament was Chequamegon with 17-lbs. Mercer was second with 15-lbs.The weights were aggregates of the different species allowed. Not a qualifier to be weighed (season closed) were muskies. One of Mercer's kids, senior Matt Weber caught and released, three muskies that day a 45", 30" and 18". The week before he caught a 48" on tip ups. I've fished with Matt, he's a great fisherman. congratulations Chequuamegon. For the Mercer kids, they fished in different groups it sounds like a lot of the fish were caught in shallow water (3-Cool.

Another cold morning -17 another better day to cut firewood. CatchinFish if you read this give me a call tonight, early evening I think I'm going to fish tomorrow. If no on the cell home phone 715 476-0326.

I think a lot of people are with KennedeyRec I'm starting to get calls for May and June.

FISHING REPORT
2/3/15 5:13 PM CST
Ice Depth: 17" Conditions: Snowing Air Temp: 16° - 20° F
Fished Saturday 1/31/15. Had 6 tip-ups out starting @ 0715 in 4-11 feet of water. We had one flag all day and it was a miss. Pulled 'em at 1500 and took a quick snowmobile ride down to Donner's for a beer. Talked with other anglers who shared similar reports. Ideally would have preferred to fish until a couple hours after dark, but the prospect of a whiskey and a pizza were too tantalizing for me to pass up after all the action. 1 decent pike, 1 decent walleye (appx 25" 5lbs), and 1 12" crappie were the better fish on the Fisheree board along with some smaller fish, but there may have been others I didn't see.

There is quite a bit of winter left and certainly great ice fishing ahead, but I am really looking forward to open water.
