Could have stayed home in the morning. Found schools of fish in 65 to 55 feet . Started packing up at 2:30. First time skunked. They were there they just wouldn't bite. So I drove around and talk to some other fishermen in the area. They had the same problem all morning to then they just started biting around 2 o'clock for them. They had five perch on the ice. Everyone I talked to was polite and nice. No fish, but a great day to be out. Looks like it's going to be early ice out this year, we should have 24 to 30 inches buy now. If this weather keeps up we only have three to four weeks left before blackice?

Another night of small walleye. 5 flags 3 shorts nothing on the jig pole.I believe in North Dakota it is a law that you can't fish within 50 ft of a shack. Love that law if its true. Also when I had a shack I would not run my tip ups 100 yards or farther, away from my shack. Put em close so others can fish around you without getting pissed. Anyway out 5 times on Mendota this year, tons of shorts, one legal.

fished today for a few hours out of gov. island for cats, etc... headed west and started in 25fow and worked sw to nw moved 4 times drilled and drilled never had a "bite". worst day on dota ever other than being with a good buddy and the gorgeous weather was actually sweating at a few points with the clear sky and bright sun, fishin sucked though, shoulda went ta pooooooygaaaan! also tried Monona bay last night got 3 keeper gills and a few throw backs, cloudy water and sight fishing in 2fow wasn't very productive imo.

goodfishin!

Buckshot 22 I was out yesterday out past the Brearly Bars 50 ft. Depth. 10 inches solid. Had not lost any ice from last week. You should keep an eye out for any heaves. They have changed with the short thaw.

Anyone willing to comment on ice conditions out towards the middle of the lake? Did we lose ice through the warmer temps we had this week? I was out last Sunday and there was roughly 10 inches out in 60 FOW off Govs.

I was out off Gov. Island about a week or so ago and drilled lots of holes looking for Perch from 45' out to 65' and wasn't able to find them.

Viper, you'll have better luck launching a boat at Tenney right now. The area inside the breakwater is completely open. Rick

Can you use the Tenney Park landing to run a 4x4 onto Lake Mendota. With permits of course. In the past I have only used landings on the west side of the lake.
