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.

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

Our cabin is in Sunset Bay just around the corner from the ferry. I passed the search team that day, they pulled him out near the third/fourth pylon away from the east shore under the tressel.  I’ve always been told to pass under the tressel right next to shore when on the ice, not sure what conditions where like or what he saw but apparently he was on his way home from Fitz’s, which means he crossed once going north prior. Police put out barrels with lights and crime scene tape to block that area. Will be out on wheeler this weekend but not going that way! Hope it wasn’t gator800 who posted back on 1/6, sounded like exactly what he was asking about doing...  RIP good man, god bless

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!

I went off memorial park just up from the tressel and had 11 inches about 80 yards out over that 26' deep trench if that helps.

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!

MOON PHASE
Last Quarter

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??
