Thanks for the insight. We fished Saturday morning on the point just off the boat landing on the east shore. Caught about 75 with only 2 keepers. A 9” gill and a 9” perch. We also got a bonus LMB. We watched some idiots attempt to drag an ice castle out, and proceed to bury it 500 yards from the landing. We were fishing without jackets as they drove by. No shacks were needed on Saturday.

Fished the weekend of 2/24 using tip ups targeting pike and walleye. 4 flags all weekend, but only one 24” pike on the ice. Northeast area of the lake.
Nocfisher. I was up there about 10 days ago. All the 5 inch perch you can catch scattered around the lake. Then I hit a spot near the islands in about 11 ft of water. Kept 14 very nice perch. Then they were gone. Been a strange ice fishing year. The fish don't seem to be in the same places as past years. Not just for Big Chetac but other lakes I fish as well. Good luck.
