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!

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?

Fished Tuesday morning with a friend. Tried targeting perch in the 30 foot basin. Marked a couple small schools. Few bites. No catches. Also, anyone know if there are standing weeds on the west ( east side I meant)side of the lake by the tracks? Seen several permanents located there. Wondering what they target.

Went out yesterday to give it a shot at the perch. Tough walk out with the snow. Kept to the trail and made it out to 28-30FOW. Got on a school of perch first off and got 2 that were 9" and thought it was going to be a good day. Missed about 4 other bites before the school moved off. Marked another school of something that was cruising @ 10-14' range but nothing hitting. Moved around some but located fish back in the hole I started in when I was leaving in the afternoon and got 2 more perch and missed three more bites.

Thanks for the info. I'll be out there Sunday at about 1pm till about 6:30pm. I'm meeting the rest of my group at Wal-Mart, is there a bait shop between there and the launch on Quam Dr? I'd be looking to get minnows and medium shiners.
If you see me out there, feel free to stop by and say hi. I'll have this sled out there.
