CONDITIONS

ICE DEPTH
3 inches

AIR TEMP
31° - 35° F

Got out on some thin ice on Friday on the east side. Might of been 2 inches or so where we were at. Didnt venture out too far to say the least. Did get 3 flags and caught 1 walleye that was about 14 that went back. Some areas on the west side had 3 to 4 inches but that'll change with this weeks warmer trend.

Be safe if you do go and have a buddy along.

With lake levels being extreamly low and continuing to drop even more, I decided to call it a season and move on to the "Hard water" phase. Thanks again to all my clients for a great, but wet, open water fishing season!

Looking forward to 2018 and we'll see you on the ice!!

Smallies continue to be a blast.  Early morning top water and then both cranks and plastics.  No problem catching eater walleyes in the late afternoon/evening on minnows or crawler and jig or harness..  Also caught some mid day trolling cranks.

Thought we finally caught one of the numerous musky follow ups earlier in the week but it ended up a 39" piker.  Found some big gills while dragging jig and crawler on Thursday.  Piled up on a weedy rock pile.  Everybody around us with musky action but we failed to boat one.

All in all a great week on Chip.

Since keeper size walleyes are tough to get I was wondering about the Perch.In the past we would catch some nice size ones but I would find Light colored worms or grubs in the meat.I was wondering if anyone else has run into this.

here's some help about eating fish in Wisconsin

dnr.wi.gov/topic/fishing/consumption/

there's more specific information available, select a  county

dnr.wi.gov/FCSExternalAdvQry/FishAdvisorySrch.aspx

...click on a lake

... the Chip is not in any of the higher risk waters, so the normal guidelines apply

Shermo, there are no warnings about high mercury levels on the flowage. I'm sure, like any lake in Wisconsin, there are some trace elements found, but, not enough to pose a health risk. Unless posted by the DNR. Now, Windigo Lake outside of Hayward has vast amount of walleyes in it, but, you cant eat them due to the excessive amounts of Mercury in it.

Hey Everyone, 

Are there any issues with eating the fish from the flowage? i.e. high Mercury levels etc. Thanks!

I was trolling about 12-13 ft down.  Had some groups out this weekend and we had  some success. Cold mornings seemed to be the best. Four inch gulp work.

Soaked a sucker after the game today and caught this 39 at aabout  4pm today
