A reminder that the Hartje's Annual Ice Tournament will take place this Saturday. We will be launching out of the North End. Redisteration will be from 5:30-6:30am anglers can take the ice and begin drilling holes at 6:30 fishing will begin at 7am and weigh in is at 1pm. Contest is combined 7 crappies and 7 bluegills. We will also award big bluegill and big crappie. Two man teams $50 per team $5 for big fish. I have decided to extend the normal boundaries to the entire lake this year for a change. Any last questions of concerns message me. Look to see you out there. Peace! Nick

FISHING REPORT
1/28/15 2:15 PM CST
Ice Depth: 10" Conditions: Partly Sunny Air Temp: 21° - 25° F Water Temp: Below 40° F
Late report but went out Sunday 1/25 from 7:30-2:00. Tried a new spot on the south side of the lake in 12 foot of water and pulled in gills left and right but nothing huge. Ended up keeping about 20 and threw another 50-60 back between 2 guys. Vex was lit up like Christmas at times with all the shad moving through. Was hoping there would be a few crappies mixed in there but no such luck. Did end up catching 1 crappie and 1 LM off the bottom out of same spot but everything else were gills. Picked up and moved North to try and find some bigger fish out in the middle near some brush. Caught a couple bigger gills there but pretty slow. Were a bunch of shacks just to the East of us along the shore, not sure what they were after. Going to try and get out again this weekend to find some bigger fish. Anyone willing to share any walleye areas? I've got some spots I catch them during the summer but they vanish on me during the winter. Any advice would be great, thanks!

beer to ease the pain I think, maybe a touch of schnapps in case of snow snakes....

he didn't do well yesterday either so he said that was the best advice he would think of....

hope you have better luck this afternoon Smile

Thanks Prop-Buster. We didn't have any luck this morning. Tried crappie minnows, red spikes, and waxies. Going to try again this afternoon. I'll be sure to bring the beer for back-up! ??

my buddy fished Redstone yesterday and I asked him if he had any advice for you and he said bring plenty of beer because you will be bored just sitting there otherwise Sad

Went out with one of my sons. Had a total of 4 tip-ups out with shiners and then one of us jigging with crappie minnows and the other with waxworms. Had 0 bites for 3.5 hours. Sounds similar to the other report.

Went out just south of section 11 rd launch from 2-5:15. Nothing at all on waxies, crappie minnows, or shiners. Other people seemed pretty slow, too.

Across the damn in the first inlet. No bites of any kind between 12pm-3pm. Jigging minnow and waxies, nothing. Drove out there. Heard good thing about Dutch hollow. Probably try that in a few days.

Heading out in a bit with the little ones. Planning on waxies and small minnows for pans. Does anyone bother soaking shiners on tip ups here for eyes or pike?

Drove my F150 from the landing by the dam out to Cardinal Ct. and then across to Pierce landing. Checked ice thickness couple of times found 12" each time. (That was Wed morning.)
