Yes.... thanks! Just not sure if it will be the same results down were the river narrows back up.
Just wondering what the ice is like outside of moon valley heading towards Weigands Bay? Wanted to take the ATV by hugging the shoreline but with the river channel being right there I wasn't sure if it'd be possible. Any info would be helpful.... thanks!
Fished out of MoonValley on Sunday for 6 hours. 15 to 20fow. Fish were semi active the entire time but just sniffers. Fished away from the pack, based on the activity around it don't think there was much going on there either. Done well here in years past but not today. Ice depth was...a lot. There was one small car and 2 full size trucks out there.
Ran into a buddy back at the truck. He and his wife were heading out for the last couple hours of the day. They didn't fair any better than I.
Driving home I glassed a fair number of others fishing around lake. Any reports??

Drove out by islands yesterday, no problem with ice depth. Did get one little sauger (10"), and lost one while pulling transducer. You can pick up a fish or two at right times. Right after sun up, and right before sun down, and must find the 10' by a drop off. Again, a short window, and usually shorts, but have stumbled on a keeper occasionally in past, but far and few between.
Dont wast your time its the dead sea. When I moved up here 20 years ago I wondered why no one icefishes After about 5 years of disapointment I gave up other than at the grade for first ice lots of gils, bass and northerns till around jan 1st or so. I think the cold or lack of oxygen drives them out to the lake and river, But I guess it never hurts to try . MK

Set tip ups and jigged over by the bridge at Okee last Friday. Dead sea. Graphs showed fish on the bottom, but they had lockjaw. There were probably 6 or 7 guys out there, everyone had flags out and we didn't see a single one pop. Talked to a few of the guys and they confirmed that they were marking fish as well, but no takers.
