Went out yesterday, Sunday, for my 'first ice' this year from 1:00pm - 4:30pm. Granted not prime time but caught nothing but dinks. I hope our Lake Management team has the 'lake chemistry' figured out for a good fish balance. Last winter it was weeds, 3" perch, and northerns. Weed issue seems to now be under control after a long weedy summer.
Fished in 13 FOW and Vexie lit up like a Christmas tree all afternoon. Constant fish marks. Caught 30 - 35 tiny 3" gills. That's it. Started to rain so I packed up taking nothing home. Spoke with a guy just off the roadbed when I left who was having the exact experience.
Appreciate input from others.
