Went down to gather a few small gills for catfish bait and was just fishing off shore with crawlers and a bobber.. In 45 minutes I caught a dozen, but to my surprise, half weren't "bait" size..
Ended up with 6 that were very nice gills, which became an unexpected dinner!!
I'll be hauling the canoe down this weekend for more!!
I went down Wednesday to see if ice was out. There was a barricade on path at south send with a sign. "Lake closed. No ice fishing' Still ice on most of lake. Open water around foot bridge. I went yesterday thinking warm temps would have melted ice. Still just open around foot bridge. I tried with ice fishing jig and wax worm for 15-20 minutes .Nothing. Water is gin clear and never saw anything moving.

I went out in my kayak last week at around 4pm and trolled with one pole that had a 1/8 ounce jig w/ a small Berkley minnow at around 15 feet deep. On the other pole I had a crawler on a floating jighead. The depth I was working was about 15-25 feet. I caught 2 bass (16 inch and 12 inch), 1 crappie, and a ton of small/medium bluegill.

Has anyone consistently caught bass here on artificial lures, or am I wasting my time?
