MOON PHASE (43%)
Out on Indian Bay yesterday. 4"-6" of good ice. Trying for panfish and two tip-ups for northerns. Probably caught 60-70 undersize bluegills. They should be nice next year. Only one flag. Maybe should have went to the west end for northerns.
MOON PHASE (18%)
planning on coming up for christmas through new years. Anyone like to ice fish with me that would be around. I have all the gear and electronics. Also will have beer on me if we go. Looking to target walleye mainly but open to others. Please message me. Thanks again.
MOON PHASE (0%)
6° - 10° F
Here on the north shore, measured 6" today - 12/6. Pubic access is off west shore @ Nat'l. Forest campground. Last week our fishermen caught close to their limit on northern, 1 - 23" 'eye, but not much activity on panfish. Saw two sleds fishing out front of Edgewater hole last weekend. Neighbor said he rode his ATV over on Indian Bay last Sat. and said he found 5-6" ice.
MOON PHASE (97%)
Finding anywhere from 3.5-5inches on the west shore. As of now all the snow is gone, so this next cold snap should make some great ice.
Fishing was decent yesterday, not nearly as good as I was expecting with this moon phase, and first ice, and past experiences from my journal, but great to be out, but maybe today and tomorrow will be the days. 23 flags from 2:00pm-10:00pm, alot of short walleyes so the future is looking good, couple decent pike, alot of snakes per usual.
Here on the north shore, I found 3" ice on Sat. 11/17, and today 11/20 had a consistent 4" clear ice , with 6" powder snow cover. Thought I'd add a couple pics from '09 showing the results of riding an ATV on too thin of ice without checking before you ride out from the Misery Bay boat ramp. It took the divers 10 hours to extract, while the temp never got above 5* the entire time they were out there. Not to mention the costs.
Wishing all a great Thanksgiving and a great flying flags season to come !!
