Looking for advice. I have read all the post with tips and techniques. I have used that advice with mixed results. That's fishingSmile Thanks to everyone for the help.

Can anyone suggest a location where I could take my young kids to catch a bunch of small bluegill or something? They don't care about size, they just want to pull something out of the ice quickly. I want them to have fun and get hooked on the sport. Any sure bets out there?

Thanks

I fished the Rock with a friend all weekend. We fished from the Turtle east to the high lines. SUPER SLOW sums it up. There was no lack of effort here. Countless holes drilled, and every presentation imaginable was sent down the holes. We did manage a few short walleyes each day, and some crappies on tip downs or dead stick and rosies. Not many people where out over the weekend fishing, tons of snowmobiles though.

You are right Jerry about some people blowing smoke in there posts. I can say one good thing, what I see from the partner guides posting are all straight shooters Like Joe, Bob, and Mark just to the point with the facts. Big Smile Cool

Thanks Big_Shane. I post it as it is. The best angler in the world can't catch them every time out. Check two post ahead of mine on 2/5. Joe is another straight shooter. If some people would blow less smoke up peoples butts it would be a much better site.

Keep a tight line!!!

Jerry

Not quite as busy this last week due to the big snow. The fish were biting before the storm though. Purple and black tungsten with red spikes was working the best. Got some hog gills a crappie and of course your par for the course short walleyes on the tip downs in 14 fow.The draw down is starting so everyone should keep an extra eye on the ice now, especially with the weight of all that snow on the ice. Everyone please be safe and cautious. Fishing should start picking up in 2 weeks with the end of the draw down and the start of the spring migration. Looking forward to some scaldiing hot action the second half of February just like last year.

Jerry thanks for the honest report as always. Frosting lickers seems to be the norm on the rock this winter.

I was out this morning for a couple of hours. Drove on at the Turtle with my UTV, no problem at all. A lot of trucks out, but you will need 4WD. With the warmer weather predicted for the weekend the snow should settle a lot. Hopefully we won't get a lot of slush under the snow. The bite was slow for sure. Lot of lookers, not many takers. Couple crappies and perch. Tried six locations and drilled 18 holes.

Went snowmobiling across the lake yesterday from Carlson's to the Turtle and there was no heaves.

On the way back got on the lake at the Landing and in front of the Juneau Castle Rock County Park there is a heave going east to west. Stay away, it has open water!
