Was out on Middle from 4 am to 2 pm. Tried my old January gps spots but only one small area had a few gills and crappie. Made 3 major moves, and fished water from 7 to 33 ft deep, but only caught 6 gills, 6 crappie and a perch in 10 hours of constantly moving. Just a tough day

Seems to be a theme this year. For me, fish are not where I've found them in past years.

Was out on Middle for 6 hours searching for crappie. Had a couple tip ups out but just caught 3 snake pike on them. Spent the first 5 hours searching gps points where i have caught crappie in past Januaries. It was literally the dead sea in those spots. Almost gave up and quit, but decided to drill a few more holes in an area I had never fished before. FINALLY found some fish right near dark in 27 ft of water. All the fish were within 3-4 ft of bottom. Took home 8 gills 7 3/4 to 8 1/4 inches and 3 crappie 9 1/2 to 10 1/2 inches. One gill was full of eggs, pretty rare for January.

Were you using a white spinner or spinnerbait?

Out for a bit today. I dissagree with the previous post. Legal bass are fairly common on certain days. Anyways me and a buddy got around 25 today. He got more than I did. Apparently the white spinners did better. Fished fairly deep. Off Cuz of the heat. Also got 2 pike, nothing to brag about. Water is way low to. Wouldn't recommend any boat over 16 foot unless u wanna buy a new lower unit ;)

Hit Middle from 4 to 730 pm. Started deeper, around 15 ft, not much action. gradually moved shallower, catching ten bass or so in the 8-12 ft depths. Finally casted the shoreline the last hour and caught another 10 bass or so doing that. The last cast under a pier resulted in an epic battle with a bass that wrapped my line around the posts 3 times. Cant believe my 8 lb test did not break. Was in the kayak, and the pier was high, so i was able to slide underneath there and fish the bass out of the posts all three times. Landed the 21 1/2 inch girl and released her. Total of 4 legal size bass, which is unusual for this lake

Pretty good. What did you guys catch most of them on? I live very close to this lake and fish it regularly.

Thought I would do some gill and perch fishing on a quiet lake in my kayak. Middle and Lower are still slow, no wake. The road is almost completely above water, but the barricades are still up, so u have to drag your boat about a hundred yards. The only other boats on the lake were a canoe and a lady pulling her kids in a tube at about 5 miles an hour in a jet ski of all things.

Fishing for 4 1/2 hours, I caught quite a few gills. Stopped counting at 100. Took home 9 gills all 8 to 81/4 inches, and two perch 8-9 inches. Released a few small bass. Used a large chartreuse Genz worm baited with a waxie. Was a relaxing time on a quiet, peaceful lake.

Went out to Middle, knowing it would be tough to find the roaming schools. Shot thru the ice in literally 250 spots. Was searching for the crappie. If u go to the lake tomorrow. u can follow my sled track all around the lake. Found gills in three spots, caught 8, 4 were around 8 inches, released. My plan was to hit 2 difficult lakes to ice fish this week, Middle Gen and Beaver. Beaver is even worse. Looks to be more pain when I try the Beav. Sweating
