Doing ok. Slow but good fish. Skinny water and fatheads worked over shiners. 35" nort and 19.5 inch eye.

Northern came very well after dark. Very odd, thought it was a massive eye. 


Edit: tack on another 34 at 11pm on a fathead. Cpr'd.  What the heck...odd odd odd

Off this weekend been itching to get out on the Big D, but might have to stick with old trusty. Not worth taking a swim, thanks for the heads up on ice conditions stay dry and safe.

Went to take the long walk to the perch grounds today and only could go to just the other side of browns channel otherwise the whole middle of the lake is wide open!!! From the point on the north side all the way across!!! For a 200yrds down the lake please if your going out this weekend be extremely cautious and DO NOT try to take a machine of any kind from one end of the lake to the other! Like said before there are spots of 13in all the way down to 4-6 so please be smart this weekend and be safe!

Wolfwolf-The lake has a 1000# weight limit on the ice. 

There are also quite a few areas that just froze solid last week. I personally was out the last two weekends and had 1/2" ice next to 4" in the area I was fishing. That same area was 4" next to 7" last weekend.

Does anyone know if the yacht club allows you to park there to access the lake?

ICE DEPTH
13 inches

Fished Monday from 10:30 am till dark. We walked out from the beach by the inlet to the 1st point that had a steep drop next to shore. Had tip ups out from 10 to 28 ft. 1 upper 20s pike and a smaller one on a large fat head jigging. Had 13 solid inches at that spot and saw a wheeler out in the middle of the lake moving around a lot in the 40ft+ zone I'm assuming for perch and walleye?!
