Went out for a few hours this morning. Was a bit on the slow end. Have not fished this lake in 2 years. But still got on some fish. Was able to get 6 perch around 8 inches. And a few small bluegill. And 2 small crappies. Had some flags out. But never went up.

Hit up Dexter for a couple hours one afternoon. Actually did manage one decent crappie, but like usual 98% of everything runs on the small side.

Fished sunday from 11;30am til 2:30pm off point by new boat landing in 10 feet according to my vexilar.  Not as many people out as I had figured, easy parking/access.  Little bit of water / slush on ice by shore.  Moved 3 times, last spot (someone elses old holes) finally caught 11 inch bass and 8 inch perch on dark tan marmooska with red plastic.  Not much activity on vex screen, fish on bottom.  No real success by other anglers I talked to either.  Ice thickness not as much as I had figured, 4 wheeler tracks right off landing, zipped on and back off.  Didn't get skunked but not too far from it.  Still good to finally be out watching locator/ waiting for that spring bobber to move........next time right?

Went out to Dexterville today, not much ice folks. 3 inches at best in some places. Most of it 2” and under. I went out and fished for a few hours. Caught 2 small perch, Nothing else even on the flasher. I was very close to shore. Hardly any thickness to the ice off pine point. ... IF you go out on the ice, bring someone, have a set of picks and use a spud bar!

Sundays wind turned Tuesday into fishing day.  11 til 1:45, fished offold boat landing in 7 to 10 feet of water.  Pretty clear water conditions, not much current as dam was just open a trickle, maybe not so later this week.  Moved several times, switched up the lure size/type, all fish right down on bottom.  Shiner, 5 gills and couple of smaller crappies were the results.  Waxworm and vertical jig seemed best but you needed to draw them in with a spoon or cicada type bait then switch back to jig setup.  Not many people out but still driving on.  Ice races on Dexter this Sunday weather permitting.  Am thinking this lake getting to be an early or late bite,may have to set the alarm or get light setup rigged for shack.  Know there are nice fish in here, just haven't found the right spot or setup.  Still a good time.  Even got buzzed by a couple of fighter jets, fish activity on locator actually picked up.  Next time think I'll put out 2 tipdowns and jig too.  Sooner or later......

Does anyone know how the tournament went? Haven't fished the lake in years and I am wondering if there are any Pike that still swim here. I know they can be caught below the damn on the river. Just wondering if they still successfully spawn in the lake. 

Also wondering about Walleye? I have caught 1 very small one over ten years ago. Just curious about the overall current state of the lake.

Went out 2/5/17. I got out around 14:45 or so, lots of folks down for the fishing tournament. I did not participate. Anyways cought 4 perch all right around that 5 inch mark. And one crappie also around the same size. Didn't keep anything. I didnt post an ice depth because I didnt get an exact measurement but I drove out on the ice and many others did as well.

Foggy ride down, fished from 12 to 4.  Slush/water on ice, had to walk through some 8 inch deep water by old boat landing to get on ice.  Atvs out on ice, no cars/trucks that I saw.  Not that many people fishing.  Bit of current in 10 feet of water to left of old boat landing.  Not as many old holes open with the warm weather as I thought there would be.  Gills bit pretty good but lot of small ones.  Lost a nice crappie right at hole when it got wrapped around transducer cord.  Got bit off once, broke off by what looked like a carp.  Ended up sticking with one hole the whole time, pretty much always had fish down by bottom.  1/2 waxworm seemed to work better than whole one; more scent?  White vertical jig seemed best in what I threw at 'em.  Figured I had about 20 gills laying on ice next to shack when I come to go......but here close to my shack was an open hole.....think some self released.  9 was enough for a nice meal anyway.  Nothing real big, but nice clean fish.  None with black spots/grubs in them.  Ice cleats and cross country ski poles really helped walking out and back.  Need some cold weather for better ice conditions.....

Too nice of weather to work, figured I'd sneak down to Dexter....looked like many with that same idea, parking by old boat landing almost full.  Lot of people on ice, no vehicles that I saw.  Fished in 10 ft water, lots of fish, mostly small, couple of nicer gills but no keeping today.  Red or orange bait color seemed best for me.  Talked to buddy who went earlier in day, he said white; guy right by landing with bucket of nice fish orange/yellow jig with yellow plastic so go figure.  Very slippery with no snow, good cleats a must, my cross country ski poles worked great.  Sucks to get old and gimpy but it is what it is.  Fishing contest down here on Feb 5th.
