is there a possible report on the ice thickness on the lake? was thinking of bringing the wife and grandchild up this Friday. trip would let the grandson see under the ice with our camera.

maybe we will even get lucky and have him pull his first panfish thru the ice...

Good day on the ice. The TV showed many fish below the ice. Bluegills were more in numbers for the panfish. Pike were also in nice quantity. Was able to pull 2 pike up the hole today. One with a fathead on simple hook and sinker (14 inch above hook).

As for the pike stories of the day it would have to be a toss up between the 2nd pike up the hole and the pikes that changed the camera view.

With the panfish coming in I dropped a small jig with waxes on the hook. No takers in the order of gills. Then out of no where a pike darted in and out of camera view. He took the jig and tried to take my lite panfish rod down the hole. The pike did come up the hole after about 5 good runs and a few rods to the top of the hole pulls. Fun to say the least. But on a panfish jig and waxes? The jig and hook are not much more than a quarter inch long. Check out the pics.

The other pike story was watching the TV and saw a beautiful pike come in to check out my fatheads. It came closer and closer and when it was maybe 8 inches from the fathead the camera started to move. Another big pike had come up from behind the camera and tried to eat the camera. It even came around the front and you could see right down the throat. Priceless!!!

Bass were few and far between but was able to jig one in and take an offering.

Not allot of change from past experience at the lake. Did explore some more and found some nice depth change. The best bite of the day was a 13.5 inch largemouth took the shiner below a tip up right after I set the tip up on the ice and tried to turn towards my equipment on the ice.

Well I now know the black tip up is no longer jinxed or broken bro

Cool

The other photo is of the first 13.5 bass caught while jigging.

Thank you to all that have posted about this nice lake. My brother and I spent two days on the lake trying to fish. Found the lake with nice claritey the FishTV and AquaVue were happy with what they could reach for distance and what they saw. Both days the fish were down there swimming past the cameras. The 1st day saw alot of crappie, some bluegills, several small pike, two walleye, and a handfull of largemouth bass. The 2nd day was filled with bluegills, bass and a few pike plus perch mixed in.

Several good flags that mainly caught pike the 1st day and largemouth the 2nd day. Jigging provided limited success with the panfish. More pike and bass were caught with jigs and minnows.

It was hard to handle; seeing all those panfish and could not interest them into bites. We tried every jig, technique and live bait.

The best story was when i had a crappie minnow and a fathead minnow on lite jigs. This real live minnow came up right between my minnows. Yes a nice crappie came out of who knows, and took the free minnow.

Does anybody know what the ice conditions are, and if there are any reasons that nobody drives all over this lake! Last year everybody just stayed in the landing bay! Thinking about heading out there! Not sure why i feel weird about driving to the other side! Just Not Sure!

Was out on horseshoe on sunday. Everybody was fishing the same bay on the west end. But I went out on the main lake. Drilled some holes, put the camera down the hole. Every time there was fish on the camera. Found a sandy hump with trap rock on it. There were at one time four largemouths looking into the camera. They looked hungry and they were. Flags were flying, the hotest time was right at noon. Even got a punkinseed on a jigin shadrap. Fish are hungry here.
