I thought I saw The Northwestern out there dropping crab pots. On a serious note, spudded around one of the tribs this morning. Only about an inch. One strike and through...

Thanks for the ice report. I've heard 1st ice is hot time for gills in the tributaries and shallow bays.

No ice on the lake yet. Pond by the campground has some skim ice near shore. Dont know about the channels.

Does anyone have info on ice conditions on tributaries to the lake, or general ice conditions in the lake?

What makes this website nice is that if you want to learn about a specific lake you can read previous posts and learn what makes that lake tick under the lake conditions that exist at the time of the post.Every winter it seems to change based on the conditions of the day. I wish everyone a safe day on the ice this and every winter. By the way, I heard the catch of the year is hangin at Town Square (old courthouse) if you want to see a big Laker.

Give a man fish and you can feed him for a day.......teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. Sorry.just had to throw that in, I look forward to more tips on fishing this big old lake from everyone. Best of luck to all !

Hey guys. I'm thinking about ice fishing this lake this year. Over never fished it before. I'm wanting to get into some nice size lake trout. Any idea where? Thanks!

I've fished for smallmouth over the past two weeks four or five times. Haven't seen anyone out there recently. Fishing has been very slow and with sub-30s and wind in the forecast, I put the boat in storage. See you all on the ice!

2 of us went out today and got 37 gills, had to do a lot of sorting to get these. Gills were caught on 1/80th oz. jigs with plastic. Fish were caught in 3 to 4 ft. of water.

I was one of those boats stacked up. Caught over 100 fish. Mostly 7inch gills and perch. Kept 13 nicer gills. We may have the whole lake but we were not interfering with anyone. Just happen to be where the fish were.

We moved our day trip up to Friday because of the forecast for Saturday had high winds.

Report: Started at the boat launch in Dartford Bay. Stayed there about 3 hours. Crappie minnows and fatheads both produced a lot of perch, but getting any of a decent size was difficult. Biggest we had was 9 inches. At around 1 the bite shut down, so we moved down the road to the park/beach peninsula. Stayed there for a few hours with only a couple more small perch. Lots of boats stacked up 100 yards off shore. Didnt see any of them catching anything either. Makes me wonder why 4-5 boats would pile up 100 yards from shore when theres 4-5 people on shore and they arent catching much. Boaters got the whole friggin lake, why cluster up us shore fishermen? Happens everywhere, at least these guys weren't as close to us as some places.

All in all it was a decent day. Got 10 perch (smallest 8 inches) to go with a couple walleye from the other day for a dinner tonight. Smile

There have been shore fisherman in the park between Green Lake[ City} and Nortons all fall. There was a good panfish bite going in the area. The boats have thinned out lately but I am not sure if the weather chased them off or the fish have moved. I go by there a couple times a week this time of year. Mrt.
