Fished from 2 - 5 pm
Ice was 14"
The fish were biting very lightly. We caught a total of 10 crappie and one perch. All were under 4 inches.
Stopped out on this lake this morning to mainly try out my new gear as this lake is close to home. I was not the first person on the lake. I followed the other trails that went out into the lake. Ice was 5 to 6 inches in all the holes I drilled. I jogged for about 2 hours. Caught a 24inch northern and a bunch of dink perch under 5 inches. Will go back out this afternoon with some tip ups.
Red if you read what was posted i never clamed to have cought a 40" northern i said i pulled a 30" not 40". I also responed again by saying avrage 25". Iv only been out to lilly a few times this year with not much luck but i was getting perch and i did pull a 30" pike. I wish you would come check it out for your self. After i posted that however many months ago i went back a few times with no luck. But bro they exist. Dont question my integrity.
Great to see the northern are doing good. I know the lake was stocked a few years ago after the deep freeze. Just wanted to call out the guys claiming to be catching the 30 and 40 inchers already. Hopefully the dnr and parks department can get out there and start managing the park and lake better than they have in the past.
You're right master. And, thank you for the recognition. I have already seen quite a few being kept. I can only imagine, what the ice season will bring.
I personally, don't keep anything out of Lilly. There's quite a bit of runoff in that lake. I've caught gills before, that all smelled like fertilizer.
