MOON PHASE (99%)
honestly have not fished here in about 4 weeks.. maybe check next week, yes I have seen people out there also... just can't give a depth out here.. Was on a different lake couple days ago.. similar size and depth... that only had 12 to 13 inches, but the drill bent through in a hurry and it was "crumbly" no ice is safe... but I am sure you could walk out here yet. general late ice rule if you can walk on your safe in the middle... late ice lets go form shore first..
snuck out to lake george for 2 /12 hours. figured the fish would be on the feed in the snowstorm. That was wrong --most fish were very neutral to negative and you really had to work them. kept 10 for a meal, gills 7 1/4 to 8, crappies 8 3/4 to 9 1/4.
MOON PHASE (2%)
Fished around the hole Saturday morning for a few hours. 4 crappies and 2 gills. And 3 dink perch. Purple moon glow with spikes. Nothing on a live minnow. As the morning progressed what activity I had tapered off. Brutal cold.
MOON PHASE (10%)
36° - 40° F
Fished George mid-day Mon and Tue. Monday, plenty action. Light biters and many chasing on screen. Golden shiners, perch, gills, crappies, lm bass and 1 chain pickerel. Most small but, could have made a meal for the 2 of us if kept the bigger ones. Biggest gills in 20fow. Tue wind made it hard to detect lite bites. I only landed 1 skinny perch. Partner had a few little perch and crappies.
snuck out yesterday after that awesome replay touchdown reversal, fished 2:30 ish til 4p. fished about 40 holes and just could not find fish in 9 to 17 feet. Did catch 4 gills 6.5 inches to 7.5 inches and about 8 perch 4 to 8 inches. Would mark a couple fish in about every 6th hole. I did find some 3.5 inch ice in two different spots. Most ice was about 4 to 4.5 inches. I knew I should have made a big move about 30 minutes in, but I was limiting myself to where other people had fished... ice is still a little iffy for me
