Asylum Bay (Lake Winnebago), Winnebago County
I've gotten some gills n such in the spring a few years back... Just sayin' that it's a shame that such a small area on such a big body of water gets pounded mercilessly during the winter months. Bumper to bumper, shack to shack fishing... good times (perhaps not!)... :-(

Got out from 930-1230 in the wind. Got 5 keeper perch. Liked a little shine and action rather than a teardrop. About 7 fow. Plenty of water on the ice and a few new cracks I could stick the spud through. Be safe
MOON PHASE (18%)
Tried deeper water 830-11 with nothing going on trying raps and rattle spoons and dead sticked shiner. Moved in toward the south point on the edge of dropoff til 1230. Not much cruising around bottom. Raised up and got one jumbo perch on a teardrop/waxie that must have been cruising the top of the ledge. Not much on camera today.
Fished Asylum Bay a few times the past few ice fishing seasons... Really SMALL area in terms of ice fishing (imho)... Gets HAMMERED every season... reminds me of Beyer's Cove at Big Green Lake... BIG hammerin" the past 5 years... ghost town for fish for the past few years... Any self respecting (and half way smart) finned critter would steer WAY clear of Beyer's Cove, Asylum Bay, etc... and they do! (who knew?);-p
Feel free to FLAME me... but it's what I've observed on the "small areas" hard water fishing...
Happy fishing, All! :-))

Nothing last night about 630-830 by the point.
Got out this morning around 10-2 and had a ton of perch around more so toward the bay than by the point. Couple largemouth, a northern, crappie and a few bluegill come through. Had a huge school of minnows come through for about 15 minutes also.

Was out today for the fist time ever on the bay. This is only my second hard water season in Wisconsin started about 930 punched a few holes fished about 8 fow and saw nothing. About 1030 packed up and saw everyone else leaving so I went alittle deeper to 11 fow punched a few holes and started marking fish slowly coming off bottom snow started flying and I had to leave about 1230 was starting to mark fish more frequently wish I could of stayed
