Lake Galena, Jo Daviess County
Thanks for the info. Any update after would be awesome. Still debating if Coming up. My wife is all for it so that should make the decision easy As they say any day fishing is better than work and can’t catch them from the couch!
MOON PHASE (80%)

The ice is still holding up after all this crazy weather. The bite was good but you have to catch a mess of dinks to get a few keepers. I got plenty of exercise hunting for a decent size fish. Still a great day on the ice.
Walmart in Galena usually has waxies although they were out today. I am close to Savanna and I get my bait from Beavers gas station they have waxies and minnows. That's about 30 minutes from the territory. I would suggest you stop along the way not sure what route you are taking. Other than that Dubuque Iowa has a place called The Bait Shack that is about 45 minutes from the territory.
We have had quite a bit of rain around here and warmer weather, not good for the ice. I have seen a few people fishing and I plan to go myself soon but if this weather keeps up like this we are going to have a very short season.
Besides all that good news fishing has not been that great this year. I am hoping things will turn around or I will have to change my game plan. Perhaps Chippewa Falls.
