Haven't been ice fishing this year, went out for the first time this past Saturday.

Seventeen inches of ice, traveled on snowmobiles did see a few trucks and a couple 4 wheelers with tracks. There is some slush but not bad travel. I would think a 4 wheeler with tires would get around ok yet, they are the least viable mode of transportation on northwoods lakes mid to late winter.

We fished mainly wood structure in the 5-9' depth range. Got set up around 11am, had a little action right away including our biggest fish a 22" walleye and a musky. Then most of the afternoon it was really dead. I suggest to ice fisherman, if you are going through all the efforts to get out there, you have to fish at least a half hour after sunset. We kept 8 walleyes, released some small ones. Most of the fish were just before and just after sunset. In the winter especially on a bright sunny day that is pretty typical.

Tip ups mostly shiners, some walleye suckers. Was pretty happy with our catch.

It was a good thing we had snowmobiles to get to the tip ups, we ate steadily for about 4 hours while Jeff and Mark made shrimp, steak, bbq pork, deep fried pickles, pheasant,one of my favorites bacon wrapped asparagus, onion rings.... Fun day on the ice!

Fished 6 consecutive days 3 people.  Tip ups and some vertical jigging all fish came on shiners and tip ups.  Landed 15 northern and 6 walleyes.  Wife, kids and friends had a blast.   missed twice as many.  Can't say enough good about the enjoyment realized from the area hard water, trails and snow. I am sure this report won't make any hall of fame, unless you ask my kids.

Fished Sunday 1/1/17 from 10:30am to 5 pm caught  4 walleyes  from  12" to 15" all caught on tip ups with shiners in 6' to 12' of water nothing jigging. Does anyone do any good jigging through ice for walleyes on the flowage?

Does anyone have knowledge of traffic or ice conditions between fishermans and Bonies?  How about town line?  Just wondering how ice is over that way.
