FISHING REPORT
2/25/15 9:03 PM CST
Ice Depth: 16" Conditions: Partly Sunny Air Temp: 31° - 35° F
moved wood shack a couple hundred yrds just for a change since I wasn't getting much..now must be on part of lake that froze earlier. Measured 16". stayed out till 7pm. Had one biggun (cat?) on in 35fow on a crappie rod. Lost it half way up after many runs. NW wind gusts were wild! Thought the windows would burst and almost lost the roof. Settled down after dark and was a nice starry night.

FISHING REPORT
2/20/15 9:22 AM CST
Ice Depth: 12" Conditions: Sunny Air Temp: Below 0° F
Sat out till 8pm yesterday @ 35ft on edge of drop to the deepest. Little kids along till sunset, playing in snow (cold don't bother them) while I kept the stove going in shack. Older kids came out after dark and had a couple hits. locator lit up with plenty baitfish and other active blips as sun faded per usual. Landed one cat on a light rod rigged for crappies=yeahaaaa, tangled lines & transducer etc. A real cluster when get one on inside shack, I prefer to sit outside for them but, shack was too cozy....With soo many active fish, some even chasing lures, you would expect a lot more hits. May have to take camera out next time to see what they be....

FISHING REPORT

Ice Depth: 12"
winter walleye bite hasn't been much for many years. Other than and occasional dink here and there and sometimes hear about someone landing a decent one accidently while fishing for other fish. I put tippups in and often jig in likely places with no results. There are a few guys that get short flurries of activity on eyes by staying out very late or long allnighters on the ice. Don't seem like many eyes in the lake any more and still have plenty baitfish to feed on. Would think the baitfish be whittled down by the white and yellow bass so, something would be hungry? But, still see clouds of little stuff on locator....nephew had one flag at dusk Sun, a walleye rig with med shiner in a likely spot, slow turning spool. He felt it but no hookup. That is about best I expect these days.

I get a few walleyes out here during open water, haven't ice fished swan in years. Is the a winter walleye bite at all or is far and few between? May give it a shot well cold snap pushes out.

Ice Depth: 11" Conditions: Sunny Air Temp: 26° - 30° F
5 of us out Sun afternoon-dark with northern tips set=had one go up couple times. Mon morning till dark tried gills, moved for perch, had northern tips out,,,later moved to deep to check on the whitebass and stayed till darkthirty hoping for one cat at least=few small gills, 2 nice ones, tiny perch and that was it. Was nice Monday at least with sun, calm and quiet. Measured ice with ruler=12 1/2" at west end and 11" just west of narrows. Another guy had also checked a few holes on west half of lake and found the same. Old ice on east is that or more.

anywhere west of the public landing or Country Club may have only 6" ice. People have been driving street vehicles east of those landings as that part of lake stayed frozen when the rest was tore up from wind at end of Dec. ATVs been all over whole lake.

Is it safe to cross through the narrows? What about over the deep basin?
