Lotta smaller fish, fished a few times here the last month or so. sorted a couple hundred small fish for just a handful of decent fish. all CPR. the crappies and bluegills seemed to be very stubborn and a finness presentation was definetly the approach we took. we need some weather change and itll light up. no flags tho which is a bummer wanted pull a big tooth outta there. until next year we are onto the lakes

Miketwa, I have fished Neilsons at night a lot and have had good success with the crappies and an occasional walleye.  The key is using a propane lantern and dead sticking crappie minnows.  I prefer Rosies if you can find them.  You need to fish the minnows just a foot under the ice as Crappies feed up.  Set your rods and the light away from where you are sitting and try to keep the noise down and you will catch some fish.

Has anyone ever done any night fishing on Neilsons?  I have always wanted to try it. thinking about going out tomorrow night.


My report for today, didn't catch squat. had some bites but otherwise nothing.   Was out between 8am-12pm.  Moved around, several other guys also I saw moving around a lot, but I heard them making comments also they weren't biting either.  I dont know if the major temp drop last night had anything to do with it.  Ice is nice and solid.

Can't believe that there is only 3 inches of ice back there still.

Good action today 8 am to 1 pm but only 1 of 10 a keeper. Saw yellow bass, LMB, gills, crappie, and carp swim by on the camera. Caught most fish on corners towards the middle of the channel. Bigger fish were on a jig with plastic. A lot of people out fishing. Ice was a solid 3 inches.

I was out Tuesday am as well. 3” everywhere we drilled. Herman’s sells waxies not sure what else. Good luck to all this year stay safe. Fish were finicky we caught a few gills 1 perch 1 bass. No size to any of them but it was great to get out.
