FISHING REPORT

Conditions: Partly Sunny Air Temp: 41° - 45° F Water Temp: 40° - 45° F
I got ZIP. Wind pounding out of the northeast, 40 degree air temperature. At 9:35 the sun peaked out. Too late, I was froze solid even though I was still in the car driving down there. Water temperature was 42 to start. As the day went along, it slowly went up. Best I found was 48. Found fish every where I went, but they all had lockjaw. Still lots of ice, could not go south. Wind was moving it around. Wind slowly died as it switched to dead west at 2. I quit at 3. Talked to 6 other guys, no one had a bite. Maybe they started later. There was bug hatch at 4 as I was leaving. The wind had pushed the ice sheet into the piers. I had to ram through it to get the boat out. I am going again on Thursday. If anyone wants to go, let me know. I HATE to fish alone. 2 days with a west wind and milder temperatures may turn them on. Best of luck to all.

I am going fishing on Tuesday. If anyone want's to go along, send me a message. If you want to go some where other than Delavan. That will work for me. Your boat or mine, makes no difference to me.

BA33,

There were probably 15-20 folks on the ice fishing yesterday during the day. By this morning the shore ice had a lot of standing water. The main lake has not opened, but the outlet by the bridge on North shore has some open water from the flow towards the dam.

Two weeks might be possible.

FISHING REPORT
3/10/15 9:55 PM CST
Ice Depth: 20" Conditions: Sunny Air Temp: 41° - 45° F
I was out with a buddy last Saturday on Blue Gill Road, when one of my tip downs fell out of my sled. It was white with an orange telescoping tube. The rod stored internally was spooled with red Power Pro, a Spro Ant swivel, and a #20 gold treble hook on a fluorocarbon leader.

Please PM me if you found it.

Regarding the bite, it was pretty tough out there. When you did catch a fish, you set the hook on instinct, rarely did the fish trip your spring bobber. The fish were really buried in the weeds and not very aggressive. It helped to use a small tungsten jig to get down through the weed cover. Orange seemed to work pretty well.

At least it was a great day to be out on one of our beautiful Wisconsin lakes. We caught fish but you had to do a lot of hole hopping.

I'm hoping this melt will infuse a little oxygen and nutrients into the water from the run-off and the fishing will turn on.

Wow, on Monday when I showed up at north shore road at 4:30pm I was surprised that not a soul was fishing. Thought this was a good time with the melt (runoff) to wake up the bite. Fished the general area, between the points and out a little further from 4:30 to 7 and not a bite. Only marked a few fish. Whats going on? I caught a few nice ones here last year. Guess I better try another spot next time.
