was out all over the lake yesterday caught fish in most places I fished ,hit catherine today fishing was slow get 1 maybe 2 fish out of a hole if any and was fishing where they were fish last week,was wishing I had gone to channel, talked to one fellow who said it was worse over there today than catherine it is fishing not catching,, as for the ice I reported a foot but but don't think I cut less than that any where cut as much as twice that in other places , 3 inches of water on the ice all ready and we have another 24 hours of above freezing will not be fishing here tomorrow foot is wet from today,, yesterday on catherine saw a lot of people not catching fish the bite was very light they were not even moving springs more than a 1/64th REMEMBER ICE IS NEVER SAFE even a foot can have thin spots somewhere
Eskimo44, you can park at Chopper's Bar for $5. They will give you a receipt/ticket to place on your dashboard. After fishing, they will credit your $5 if you purchase food, or beverages. Good chili there and it hits the spot after being on the ice.
Anyone going out in the A.M? Cant say I've fished this in the past and looking for someone or a group to go with. Waiting for my new auger blades to come in but hoping old ones will work ok.
Open to other spot if anyone knows a good spot. Been itching to get on the ice.
Solid 4" of clear ice. Mixed bag of stripers and dink perch. No gills. Color doesn't seem to matter. Green, yellow, orange and pink all catching fish. Very light bite. Roughly equal numbers on spikes and waxies. Getting 2 or 3 when a school moves through then wait 10 or 15 min for next school. Not a lot of action. Most guys moving on after a half hour or so.
