 Back waters of the rock should lock up the next couple days. Next weeks cold weather will lock the main lake up!

I will give a ice report mid week next week.

Was just wondering what part of the lake is good for ice fishing. Thanks.

Another great day out on "The Rock" in mid-November. Tim from Baraboo, and Dave from Illinois booked a morning trip for today. Very light winds to start the morning, and it pretty much stayed that way until we left at 1 pm. We pulled flies on channel edges and humps for a big portion of the morning, the trolled Shad Raps and Flicker Shads to end the day. We finished with a dozen and a half "shorties", 2 big crappies, 3 white bass, and 1 small mouth bass. 


Keep a tight line!!!


Jerry  There is still some decent weather ahead after this weekend to get on the water.

I also will use down and side scan to locate bush or wood. I have been out on Petenwell this fall marking down trees and bush for winter.

I use my side scan and watch for brush along channel edges and turns in 15-22 feet of water. Keep in mind that by March 1st these locations will only be in 10-17 feet because of the spring draw-down, you also have to subtract the depth of the ice.

Jerry,

Just a general question but when scouting for ice fishing locations what do you like to look for? Brush piles, rock piles, channel edges/bends, etc.

I spent a beautiful November morning out on "The Rock" on Monday. 44 degrees at 8 am when I launched at the County Park, and 59 when I got off at noon. I worked flies tipped with minnows and crawlers along a mid-lake channel edge for an hour and a half and boated 13 "shorties", 1 18 inch "keeper", 1 crappie, and 1 cat. I spent the rest of the time searching out ice-fishing locations for the upcoming hard water season. I hope to get out on "Pete" at least one more time this month and do the same. Still some great fishing left before ice-up if anyone would like to get out. 


Keep a tight line!!!

Fished the Rock on Sunday with a Friend from Kenosha. Caught the usual one short walleye after another, than the white bass moved in and we could not keep a rod in the water stopped fishing after filling a 5 gal. bucket. That was more then enough to clean and for some fish to take home for some Friday night fish fry's.
