On Kegonsa again today. At 13' water temp was 57°F. Water is still pretty clear. Marked lots of schools of fish, attached a snapshot from a video of one school of Crappies suspended at 13' in 20+ FOW. Schools were both panfish size and larger fish. Saw one Walleye on the camera in deep water. Threw on a Thunderstick and trolled for a few minutes while scanning. Caught a 24" pike but then just scanned after that. Yesterday had a pike swimming with his head out of the water. Shot some video of him also, he finally dove back down when I touched him with my rod. Wind went down and it was another beautiful day!

Scanning Kegonsa again today. Water in shallows is VERY clear. Temps at various depths ranged around the lake from 52 to 55°F. Lots of carp in Barbers Bay stirring up the sediment. Perfect day - light wind, nice temps and clear water!

Out scanning Kegonsa this morning. Water temp on the north side was 48°F down to 20', couple degrees warmer on the south end. Checked a couple cribs and a sunken boat for any panfish, still nothing there yet. I am seeing more suspended schools, some panfish SIZE fish, others bigger (a lot are probably carp). Water a little clearer, hopefully that trend continues! Rick

Put my boat on the lift today. Looking forward to some spring fishing after a lousy ice fishing season. Tried up the river this afternoon with no bites. River is too low and not enough current to attract fish. Lake water was 40 F and river water was 47 F. If the wind lays down tomorrow hope to get out to deep water.

On Kegonsa this am, no problems getting through the shallow areas but the water is too dirty to see bottom at Fish Camp. Water temps at 39°F at all depths checked (think the deepest I checked was 25'). DNR is putting out their fyke nets. Marked some schools of fish in the deep water but couldn't find them with the camera to see what they were. Checked a couple of the crib locations, no fish on them. Nice day on the water, guess it's time to put away the ice fishing gear! Smile

FYI. South half of lake open yesterday, 3/4 of lake open today. Should be all open tomorrow or Tuesday. Saw a guy barefoot skiing for a bit yesterday. Hmmm.

The entire bay is now devoid of weeds and fish! I would not waste your time there, but that's just me!

I realize this is a Lake-Link sin to some, but I have a question in regards to a specific spot. When I was a kid, we did really well in Barber's Bay through the ice for pike and panfish. About 10 years ago I went back and it was nothing like it used to be....not many weeds, and not many fish. Is Barber's Bay worth spending any time on in the winter anymore?
