3 hrs in shack until dark=not a bite. Too much cold wind to hole hop and no waxworms, minnows and spikes only. Still nice to look across marshlands next to warm stove.

long day on ice till after dark with a big gang including 7 kids age 6 months to 16 and 5 adults. Dozen tippups out and many jigrods going along with runnin around and riding sleds behind atv, grillin picnicking etc. I think all but 4 of us landed at least one snake nort, lost a few, OscarMayered a couple , rest on shiners. Flurry of perch came through and kids landed a bunch in a short time, most 8-11"+! Had to keep a couple dinks because even they are big to a 4yr old. told boys to keep drillin and movin to find em again but, must have just been the one school. One guy's dog went into the open water so, he ran over to pull it out and of course went in himself up to the armpits,,,twice. Coulda just walked the other way a few yrds to dry land, hahahhahahh nobody had time to turn cell phone on video, happened too fast......

11am-4pm had tippups out with med shiners, some over top of weeds, others out deeper away from weeds. 6 flags, lost some minners afer long runs buried in weeds. One flag hit multiple times out deeper was likely perch hits so, we tried jigging waxie there for a short while but, the blips on screen disappeared in a few minutes.

measured with ruler=12" ice over 20fow.

Being able to get respectively up close & somewhat personal with our National Symbol is better than catching fish.

Too many folks never make the time to seek or smell that rose.

Cool stuff barefoot!!

Up close & personal with an eagle is a special experience. Had a few of those times in the past. It's something one does not forget.

ATV travel good, few inches of snow and a little slush around edges or open fish holes. The dead deer south side of narrows is just a few bones but, eagle still picking at it. Can drive up within 50yrds, maybe closer but, didn't try, he don't pay no attention...

After plowing snow all day, rode atv out on ice and back and forth along north shore. Lot of slush! 6+ inches of dense snow soaking up water from small expansion cracks like sponge,,,it's a mess. Hope it gets cold enough to freeze the slush solid, not just crust over... Angry

Sun. same as Fri. with flags flying. Let the teenagers chase em. They didn't do much better at landing the norts than 4 yr old did. hahahah Another nearby group doing the same had a little girl about 5 or 6, she was landing a lot of small norts as they often had 2, 3, 4, Beaver Dams spinning at a time. I finally had a double going myself and had her come get one. I lost mine half way to hole, she landed the other one. Showed us how it's done...Large shiners little snakes can't get to hook. Medium shiners likely land more but, I rather not hook too many little ones anyway. The boys finally landed a fat keeper just at dusk so, they were happy. Few bonus Green Sunnies in the shack too. Lot of people fishing all over lake, warden was checking everyone, a few nice fish being caught but, no numbers....

well I finally had a nibble and landed a 7" Green Sunfish. 3 of us had more flags flying than I have seen in many years. We let a little 4yr old fight em all. Small norts over thick weeds on big shiners. Most got tangled in the weeds after taking out lot of line which is tough. Best one she got only 20" but, it was on her new pink tippup. After dark vennie on the grill and cold beers not bad either....

Fished over cribs on northeast side of lake from 3:30 -5:00 pm. Marked a few but only caught one small perch. Soaked some minnows and jigged. I'll let the lake cool off a bit before I try again !

Tried in shack over crib, nearby brush piles, out in nowhereland 20-40fow, several different lures etc. Marked fish in most holes that followed but did not hit.

Thanks for the info barefoot. I'll be out there on Saturday. I got the 411 about this lake and give it a shot. Would love to catch some fish closer to home and not have to deal with the crowds
