Fished 2/24/17-2/25/17.  Found one small spot on the south end that we were able to get a plank across to get to solid ice.  All other landings and shorelines we explored had 6-12' of slush/water before reaching solid ice.  Once out we had 12-15" of ice.  Still a few spots where you'd break thru the top crust and push down 2-3" of slush(all the melted snow from previous warm week). Fished Friday afternoon in blizzard like conditions for 2 hours and only caught a few perch. Had to resort to just watching tipups the last hour due to frozen hands.   5 of us fished Saturday it started off windy, but at least the sun came out.  Spent the entire day on the ice. Large shiners on tip-ups. had about 20 flags over the coarse of the day. Caught 4 Pike 23-28", 1 largemouth bass(14-1/4"). Jigging wax worms caught about 10 small perch, 2 nice bluegill, and 1 crappie(12").

Fished the flowage from 6:15 am until 5:45 pm on 2/18/17. Ice depth at 16" and brought out truck. Caught approximately 15 fish, 8 keepers (4 crappie, 4 bluegills) and two northern (29" and 33"). Keeper fish had light bite. Ice was incredibly soft on the way out. Two launches were broken up. Use EXTREME caution if taking a truck out.

PM 15 Based upon what I saw this past Saturday, put your tip ups (2 per person) in 8' or less of water (most anywhere on the lake), then jig for panfish within a short jog to your flag or a third tip up for your third line. Use large shiners or medium suckers for bait; I put a couple colored beads on above the hook. I also got a few nice crappies on a tip down (instead of the second tip up). Good luck! Try looking under Miller Dam lake for more current reports on this body of water.

I'm going up in 2 weeks with my mom, her friend and my siblings. Just wondering if anyone has any tips on where I should go. I have 10 tip ups so I will be setting them up. At what depth and are should I be looking for when I set the tip ups up. I'm 14 and love fishing but I'm just getting started with ice fishing. Also what type of minnow should I put on for bass and northerns. Thanks
