Edit - I just noticed the date is wrong on the webcam view, not sure if it is actually a live feed or not (it normally is)

Went out yesterday (Thursday)  5:45AM-10:00AM. Set up on Geneva bays east side in about 15'. Walking out in pretty thick fog and darkness (using a head lamp) for the 1st time this season made me pucker up a bit. At that time I was the only one out there and any old fishing holes had melted with the rain and temps.  Felt kinda eary....like I was the 1st idiot out. Knowing I wasnt helped just a little. Visually I did not love the ice structure at all........but 8-10" in every hole I cut. Anyway once I  landed on my spot I caught about 20 small gills and perch. Not one keeper. Not one crappie. Did some hole hopping in 10' to 16'....same result. Did manage one pike on a tip down baited with a fat head. Threw him back in the hole. That was the highlight. Didn't pull a tape but I'd say he was about 28".

MOON PHASE
Last Quarter

CONDITIONS
Foggy

ICE DEPTH
6 inches

Out this morning in the narrows from 730 till noon. One or two chasers that didn't stick around long and a few that just cruised through and never paid any interest to the bait. I had 6" of ice in the holes I measured. The first couple feet of ice around the shore (or lack of ice) were bad but everything else was real firm. I was the only guy out that I seen today but visibly was only 100 yards so couldn't see anything really. Got turned around out on the lake and had to use my phone to navigate back to shore. 


Here is a pic of where they were diving at. It's about 70 yards straight north of the launch.

We went out today and went straight out from linn to the narrows. You range from 5 to 7 inches. We marked sniffers and chasers in the morning but none of them committed. Then around noon we moved west towards black point and that's when ice started to thin out and it was soft. I'm a big guy but if there's no cold weather coming soon I'd stay away from going west on linn pier towards black point. We had the very most in some spots 4 inches but it was more like 3 inches in most spots. But that where we pulled out 2 lakers in 80 ft. All in all we had a good day out there, marked a good amount but most were slow and finicky. Like I said if you go west towards black point watch your steps cause the ice is thinner that way and it won't get any stronger with this warm up coming.
