I drove past yesterday the geese have been doing a good job keeping it open in some areas.

I dunno about McCullom, but I live in Wonder Lake. The small bay by my house was open last week, and unsafe on Sunday. Hopefully it'll thicken up by this weekend, but I would look for a current report before doing any travelling to try and fish, ice may still be sketchy.

Does anyone know the current ice thickness on McCullom lake? Im thinking about going out this saturday, usually is one of the first lakes to freeze up.

Went out for an hour or so this evening. The water clarity was about three-inch visibility. Very tough bite. Only fooled this 2.45-pounder.

Couple hours on the lake this morning produced a common carp, channel catfish, white crappie, and two softshell turtles. As usual, corn and cut bait. I caught the small crappie (8”) on a small jig and Gulp! waxie while waiting for the bigger bites.

Two late reports: Shore fishing with WT1 on 6 July resulted in one carp and five catfish, using corn and cut bait. Catfishing from a boat on 7 July resulted in five catfish; all on cut bait. No size to any of them, but we’re still hunting for the double-digit catfish and carp.

Got an early start this morning for some shore fishing with corn and cut bait. We caught five catfish (1 to 2 lbs), one bass, and a bunch of bluegill while waiting for the bigger bites. Might put in the boat later this week. Have a great Independence Day!

Thought it was gonna rain this evening, so we fished from shore again. We guessed incorrectly because it was calm and dry. Kinda slow, but it was a beautiful evening. Bluegill cut bait and corn produced; five catfish, a northern, and a bass. WonderTucky1 caught the two biggest (as usual); bass on cut bait was 3.3 lbs and the catfish caught on corn weighed in at 3.4 lbs.
