Bad Iron, I have tried ice fishing over cribs a few times with no luck.  I've had a hard time finding the cribs in the wintertime though - a GPS only gets you so close, so drill a hole in the "spot" the GPS tells you is the crib you were on in the summer and you could be off as much as 10 feet.  I've never had a lot of luck fishing this lake in the winter.  A few perch in the deep water is about all the luck I've ever had on this lake ice fishing.  I'll keep trying a few times a year though, since it's close to home and there's good access for my snowmobile.

I see on a couple of maps of Kegonsa that there are cribs distributed around the lake. Anyone ever have any luck through the ice fishing over the cribs?

Really cold and windy day. First time out this season and was happy to find 6" of ice in most spots that i checked. Didn't catch anything but I'm not familiar with the lake.

Kegonsa is about 90 percent froze over as i drove around part of the lake at 3 pm. Mostly just a few spotty open spots in the middle of the lake.

very nice day on the lake, but tons of weeds etc. in the water making trolling very difficult.  after white bass, they seemed to be scattered 19 fow best.  most lakes always have the "old guy in a row boat"  pay attention to them!   as the restrooms are closed they have a port a toilet, tho shoulda been emptied weeks ago...wow!

Tried for strippers in the center of the lake, on Friday! Trolled for two hours nothing. Saw tons of fish and clouds of bait. Then moved into shore to get out of the wind.....Caught small Large mouth Bass 3 inches long, then two stripers in 12 ft and a nice small mouth that got off, and a small Pike 18 inches.. Let me know if the stripper in the middle start to bite again. Thanks

Out scanning Kegonsa this morning. Beautiful day, not too many people out. Water temp from 3' to 25' was between 74 to 75°F. Clarity poor (as expected but with Mendota a lot better then normal this time of the year I was hoping for better), thick algae, needed the camera lights below about 15'. Checked some cribs off Williams Point & Colladay Bar, only smaller gills (and some carp and sheephead) present. Did mark some schools suspended in deeper water but didn't try to see what they were because of poor visibility.

Here's a link to the water levels on the Madison chain. It updates daily and if the lake should be in a no wake condition, it will be listed on the website.
