Thanks crappie! I’m better today than yesterday. Just gonna try and take easy for a couple weeks. Will and Chad made it out Sunday. Said water was murky. Pretty slow but managed a few perch and a few gills. luv2fish got a decent bass. I’m gonna try and heal up and be out this weekend. Probably be out sooner! Lol. Glad you made it up and got on some fish! Happy belated birthday! Let me know if you make it back up this weekend.

Well here goes, found ice!!! Found 1 inch of ice shorelines, with LOTS of courage friend and i ventured out farther. 20-30ft from shore ice was 2-3 inches thick. Fished from 9am till 12.30, warm up break for an hour, fished again 1:30-3 pm. Total fish caught 84, 20+crappie. Bluegills,perch and a 5lb channel cat. Majority caught on waxworms the rest on gulp mayfly. Anywhere from 4ft to 1ft below the ice. Bites we're light ( dead sticking ) crappies picked up bait and swam, had to watch the lines. All in all fantastic first ice. ALL fish released. AGAIN I emphasize all crappies were small PLEASE release them if caught ice fishing. A good spawn going on for them....

ice will probrably turn to crap next week again, please be safe and tight lines!

Planning a icefishing trip for January. Haven't figured out the days yet but looking for 10-14 days. This year I might even pop for a auger  hammer and nail is so old school. 


Btw those lake Geneva muskies were bought by Illinois musky hunter club.

If you look at lake Geneva they did a musky plant in October of about the same amount. You will also see they state they wanted to plant more but they were sold out.  So maybe that the plant they are confusing? Really don't know.


Gl this holiday with your fishing bud.
