Got out with my brother this Saturday and set up away from the crowd in the northeast corner of the lake. Fishing started good in the morning as we were jigging and had 4 flags out. Caught a couple crappies early then moved out and got some good gills in 10 foot of water.  Tip ups however were slow, we didn't have a flag until 1:15 when 3/4 of the flags went up in 5 mins landing us 3 fish. It was a blast but I'm sad the season has to come to an end. Stay safe out there guys!!!

I fished in the morning and evening this weekend.  The morning bite produced great numbers compared to the evening bite.  A lot of active fish; bluegills and crappies throughout the water column with some swimming just below the ice.  

I caught several 8-9 inch bluegills Saturday morning, and a couple of bonus pikes that evening.

I fished this morning until noon, and caught some more 8-9 inch bluegills, a crappie, and a  bonus largemouth bass. 

I kept shy of a one-man daily limit of bluegills between the 3 trips, but that's enough for a couple of meals.

Managed to get into a few Gills over the weekend got 18 in a couple hours. It was a lot of hole hopping and picking through little ones but the good gills I caught were 8 to 9 1/2 inches.

Let's see some of these 9-10 inches! I think your tape measure is missing an inch or two. 10 inch gills are hard to come by.

I got a late start at 5 this evening, but I caught quite a few to make it worth while.

With less than an hour of good fishing light left, I hole hopped in search of active fish.  I did catch and release some 9-10 inch bluegills, but also lost a few fish at the hole, too; a nice big bluegill, crappie and walleye all lost while trying to fit them through a 6 inch hole.

A tungsten jig tipped with a waxworm has worked best for me this season. If the bite is hot, I'm not afraid to use a bigger presentation to catch the bigger panfish.  But if the fish become really finicky, then I'll downsize my jig and bait/plastic to get them interested.

In the area for school and looking to give my friend his first ice fishing experience tomorrow. Just looking to find some panfish. Not going to keep any, just looking to show him the sport! Never fished this lake but if anyone has any advice feel free to message me!
