Went out from 1:30pm until an hour after dark. Ice was looking pretty good compared to the other lakes I've been on. A good 12 inches of very good ice at the minimum. Then about 4 inches of mixed ice from good to honeycomb. No water on ice. A little windy.
So for the first time in two years I walked off the ice without landing a single fish. Had 3 flags right before dark. Only one took out more than a foot of line. It let go as soon as my weights hit weeds and felt tension. Very light biters. If they do commit all they do is hold it in their mouth.
I started at the landing and worked my way all the way to musky bay. Zigzag pattern every 25 to 100ft. I had tons of lookers. Marked a lot of fish. Tossed everything from tiny tungsten jigs all the way to #5 jigging raps. All would follow and not commit. I must have drilled 50 plus holes before I gave up and put in my tip ups.
Last week I jigged up a handful of walleye in the 11 to 14 inch range at around 10am in 16ft of water. Also landed a bunch of gills worth keeping if I felt like cleaning. Very touch and go. Anybody wanting to team up and fish little green Friday or Saturday PM me. Im a bit of a newbie to the lake.
Few pics from recent short trips out. No keepers eyes yet

Fishing was slow today. We braved the wind and there were very few people out today. Had 4 flags and only one fish. We could not get any panfish to bite today.
