Slow fishing today, few keeper perch. Be safe out here. With the dam being open the ice is deteriorating at a fast pace out here.

The first thing to understand is the ice is never safe and I don't want to be the one that says the ice is safe and be responsible for someone going through. Beaver Dam has springs which makes driving vehicles on the ice dangerous. The best you can do is see what is driving on the ice where you want to go and if you have a vehicle the same weight or lighter you have a good chance of staying on top. Right now the ice hasn't degraded too much but if the sun comes out it will start to weaken. Right now the water is puddling on top of the ice which is a sign the ice is still solid, its when it is dry on top that you start to worry about honeycombing.  The long range forecast is for warm temps even at night so the ice is not going to get better.

Tried out from Fish Camp today out towards the deeper water and got one good 9" Perch and a friend pulled up a undersized Walleye. Mostly  small Perch were looking and picking at the jig with a few small Crappies mixed in

Fished here for the first time this morning, 7 until noon. Went out by Fish Camp, about half the people were driving out so I did as well. Did not even mark a fish until about 10:00 and got my first fish by 10:30. Lots of lookers, not many bites. Ended up catching 3 perch and missed 3 on the minnows. Caught the three on a chartreuse jig with a waxie. Was fishing approximately between the island near shore and the one out a ways. Is this lake normally a mid day bite or were they just not biting this morning? With the water being so stained maybe it's more of a midday bite?

They have had the dam closed while they were working on a discharge culvert all fall and the water level has been getting higher so they are lowering the lake level to the normal level.
