Not a very nice evening with a front going through, but I did manage to drop a line. Crappie remain staging near or in shallower water, but not that actively feeding. Walleye are feeding in the same areas, the opener should be good for walleye. Hopefully the bite will pick up as the weather stabilizes and warms a little. All fish swimming today.

Crappie are moving shallow. Managed to catch many and kept a few for the pan. Minnows and small plastics under a bobber worked best. Got several walleye and a few cats as well. Looks like it should be good for the opener. Fishing was much better before the front went through. A little stable weather will start the bite again. All fish caught in 4-7 FOW

Ice is out on the East end of the lake where the jump and main creek come in. Hope to get out this week for some crappie fishing.

Hit Cranberry for a couple hours Saturday with just a single crappie to show for it. Lots of fish around, but mostly small gills and perch.

Guys with full-sized vehicles were all over the lake on Saturday, including out on the big lake over areas that I might not have gone. Looks like all of that will be over soon with the warm-up.

Good luck

The ice conditions on Holcombe have varied greatly over the last several days. I saw guys out on the big part of the lake with full sized pick ups yesterday, but I don't think I'd risk it much longer. There is plenty of ice in general, but anywhere that there is current could be dangerous.

I fished a little more over the weekend without much luck.

The crappie(or gills) were not biting well enough anywhere that I fished to suggest making the trip.

how are things shapin up on Holcombe? I was thinking of spending monday up there but have 0 ice fishing ex on that body of water. 2 questions. 1. hows the ice? Still good to go for foot travel? 2. is it worth the drive to try and track down some pan fish. crappie mainly.

Just an honest no BS assessment would be great.

Thanks in advance guys. stay safe out there and good fishin!

Out on Friday afternoon and all day Saturday. 2 Bluegill, one crappie and a bit of sun burn to show for it. Fished east of 27 in the morning and off the point south of the Lion's Club fore the afternoon. Not much action, but Incredible Weather Sat: Ice fishing in only a tee shirt for 4 hours.

Took advantage of the cooler day to get the shack off the lake. Spent a couple hours over at the boat landing. Marked a few, only a couple bites. Did catch a pretty nice northern on of all things a tiny tear-drop and spikes. Was a goods fight.

Travel on the lake was a bit dicey, be careful with the warmer weather

Haven't been out for several days, but expect to be out over the weekend a bunch, will post then.

regarding general what to do on Holcombe guidelines:

The fish migrate along the river channels that run through the lake. Depending on weather, water flow, and the time in the season, the fish are in different places. In mid winter (now?) they relate to deeper water that is adjacent to flats or other mid depth structure. The fish are in the deep water during daylight and can sometimes be caught shallower later in the day.

If you've got a good auger and a truck or atv I suggest getting a good map of the lake and trying several places along the river channel, specifically bends that might have more or less current. Keeping in mind that the river channels run from one end of the lake to the other. As it starts to warm the fish will be either nearer the mouths of the rivers and creeks or migrating toward spawning areas. Drill holes on good looking structure and keep drilling until you find active fish. Otherwise find a good spot and sit tight, they'll come along eventually.

Good luck
