It’s been tough on the ice but got a tip from a nice guy “Travis” fishing next to his truck. Went out Sunday and caught some perch, crappie, sauger and a white bass. Used minnows and small jigs, all fish came that way. Nothing on tip ups all weekend.
MOON PHASE (93%)
I fished tip ups in a shallow bay this past weekend on Sunday. Caught one 18 inch largemouth on a medium shiner in about 3-4 fow. Interesting color on him that I later learned is a condition called Melanosis. https://huntfish.mdc.mo.gov/fishing/fish-diseases/melanosis-black-spot-blotchy-bass
They found his body and UTV under the ice. Looks like he went through near the tressel (from the picture posted).
That sucks! May he rest in peace!
Just read a news story about a search for a man who went missing on Lake Wisconsin Sunday:
Authorities believe the man's ATV may have gone through the ice!
Be careful out there!
Just wondering what the ice is like outside of moon valley heading towards Weigands Bay? Wanted to take the ATV by hugging the shoreline but with the river channel being right there I wasn't sure if it'd be possible. Any info would be helpful.... thanks!
Fished out of MoonValley on Sunday for 6 hours. 15 to 20fow. Fish were semi active the entire time but just sniffers. Fished away from the pack, based on the activity around it don't think there was much going on there either. Done well here in years past but not today. Ice depth was...a lot. There was one small car and 2 full size trucks out there.
Ran into a buddy back at the truck. He and his wife were heading out for the last couple hours of the day. They didn't fair any better than I.
Driving home I glassed a fair number of others fishing around lake. Any reports??
