FISHING REPORT
1/26/15 8:04 AM CST
Ice Depth: 6" Conditions: Partly Sunny Air Temp: 26° - 30° F
Sun. debated going to Fox or Beaverdam lakes, stayed on Swan to avoid crowds. Met a fellow from Beaverdam L. and his young son doing the same. The kid was very intent on catching some fish, didn't want to leave even when the sun went down. Too bad not much action for him. in the right place but, just the wrong time of year I guess. Moved shack to deep drop, put out tippups and jigged in shack with various baits. Plenty of fish on locator, plenty of clouds of baitfish also. Nephew and I had one bite each @ dusk in deep water. Still a nice day on the ice. On way to move shack stopped by Dan's shanty for a beer and vennie sammich. Should have stayed there where they were at least chasing flags,,,,chasing but, not much catching, hahahahah That is how it is in January on Swan.

1 perch and 1 crappie after dragging sled 2 miles just for exercise. Didn't stick it out after dark but, likely could have had more crappies and bonus cat or two if I did.

tried 2 cribs off north shore, mid-lake most all afternoon. Not a nibble for me, others got a couple perch or couple dink gills. About normal for mid-Jan.

Public launch/Country Club and to the east is ok. West of there is not! Middle lake, narrows and west was just a skim with open spots last weekend. Sealed up Sun night. Monday, I tried to step onto the fresh stuff off north shore, mid-lake and was creaking and sagging. Couple days later a neighbor just west of me went in up to his waist. Waist deep to over your head is only 2 steps. It is inconsistent. You can drill a hole in thick stuff and next step is thin. IF NOT SURE OF EACH STEP WHERE YOU ARE GOING, PROBE WITH A BAR!!!

Does anybody have a recent ice report since the cold snap? Looking to venture towards the deep basin west of skunk point. I saw it was still open a couple weeks ago.

I had heard that they were fishing there when I started fishing the east end. I would stay away from ice next to docks as they conduct heat into the ice. And of course, stay away from the area where the river exits the lake. Barefoot probably has better info.

Four inches at the 23 feet I've been fishing at. However, walking across the middle would be a little sketchy.
