As the smell of Altoona virgin ice fills the cab of the Ford Ranger I cant wait to be out there ice fishing Saturday. Hopefully there is enough ice to drive out by Sunday.

Fished Tuesday targeting perch and walleye 10am-1pm.  I was hoping to find fish shallow but did not.  Everything was schooled up on the mid depth flats 9-11fow.  Trolling at low speed with small shad style lures on long lines worked well.  Had a dozen eyes and about the same with the perch.  I’m sure this bite will change very soon as fish start setting up in the wintering patterns.

Wow did that turn green quick.Of course with no wind it looked even worse. Better call the Menomonie mayor to bring his scumsucker 2000 over and clean it up. But we managed a few crappies,couple gils, couple perch,one nice one, and a 17" eye. Had a nicer pike on til he rolled on the surface and spit it. Right to the carwash on the way home.

Yeah, it's definitely been a struggle.

This lake has been terrible for me this year. We've tried everything under the sun to find fish with little to no luck.

The water is a cloudy light brown. Nice day to fish with the beach being closed. No skiers or jet skis. Just a few fishing. Got 8 or 9 crappies. Kept 5. A few gils. Kept 1. No eyes this time. Had something nice on drifting and unhooked after a couple head shakes. Beautiful day.

It HAS been a crazy year for me.  More walleyes (no keepers yet) this year than ever, and can't hardly buy a crappie.  Perch disappeared.

I used to have this lake figured out, regardless of jetskis/tubers/sprites, now it's got ME figured out!!!  They must have painted an X on the underside of my boat..........

Oh and 2 weeks ago it looked like this. 2 crappie, 1 perch, 1 bullhead and 1 redhorse. Unusual.

Fishing's definitely been slow. Even in the spring my crappie numbers were way down. Hardly ever see a perch or gil. Still get 2-3 eyes most times.
