Tried downstream of point tonight from 6-8. Drilled about 25 holes and jumped all over hoping for a night crappie bite with no luck. Deadsticked and jigged with small spoons and jigs with waxies and plastics. Marked very few fish, the ones I did mark were in 12 FOW and suspended about half way up in the water column. Not all that impressed with my usual spots on the river this year, doing much better east of Point on some of the smaller lakes...

Drill 2 holes. Fish in 1 hole and put your transducer in the "downstream" hole.

Fished west of Point today and had no luck. Drilled probably 30 holes and jumped around until i started marking fish in 10-13 FOW, but couldn't get anything to bite. My problem was the current was so strong once my jig got down to 6', i lost it on the flasher because the current pushed it out and my line was pulled to the side of the hole. Anybody have any tricks for getting your jig down to the bottom in strong current? I tried putting on extra sinkers but had no luck. It's very frustrating knowing I'm sitting on crappies but can't get my bait in front of them! Also the ice was incredibly slippery underneath the snow, I took 2 diggers pulling my shack out, so be careful!

Went out to the pipe. Caught probably 20-30 Baby Bluegills and Perch. In 6-7 hours didn't catch any over 6". No Tip-Ups or Crappies. Early ice is the worst I've ever seen there.

Went out to the pipe this Friday and Saturday, caught 3 or 4 baby perch on Friday and maybe 6 on Sunday, nothing on tip-downs. Very slow, tried a lot of spots. Saw a few other anglers, they weren't catching much either. Just an all around slow 2 days for good conditions, probably won't be going back.

I drove past lakeside last Sunday and nobody out there. It's probably a dead sea. Anyone been to rustys yet or know if it's been pounded by people yet?

Red Bridge was busy today and one lone fisherman at The Pipe when I went down there. Two shacks sitting by the bridge at Tiki this morning and another closer to the beach. River Rd was good over the weekend, now with the snow making slush, its a bit of a walk through it, but all will firm up by weeks end and the bigger waters will possibly clear of some snow with the winds Wednesday. Proceed with caution and stay on top.
