Fished Friday and Saturday(today) and ended up with 10 keeper gills per day. Lots and Lots of sorting. I don't think I caught a gill over 7.5 inches. I kept from 7-7.5" I saw a lot of people today keeping tiny 4"-5" gills and crappie. I might get hate for this but it's because of people keeping tiny fish like that, that ruin fisheries. The fish can't grow if everyone is keeping the smallest ones they possibly can. This lake used to be great for quality and it's just gone down in the last five years. I encourage people to only keep what they NEED and not just 25 because they "can." Think about it, if even five people go out and get their limit of panfish then that's 125 fish taken out, and then multiply that by the people that do that on a daily basis that don't care about the "possession limit." Just something to think about. If you must hate, please PM me.

Fished off the landing Wednesday and today. Good ice (16"). The no water anywhere. Snow from yesterday was gone today so creepers not necessary but helpful. Have to pick through the gills to keep a dozen 7-8 inchers.

Was out the past two days, east side. Ice was solid at shore, and about 14-16 inches out 100 yards or so. The lake was Thundering big time. Took home a few bluegills, and the weather was picture perfect to be out. I must have seen 10-12 northern and muskies with the camera. All of the crappie were very small, and perch also. Had one keeper perch yesterday, which went back swimming. Thats it for this year for me.
I've been working a lot but last weekend there was pretty good ice yet, some quads out. The biggest problem was getting to the ice from shore, I kept falling through. If I can get home at a decent time I will check it out and report. Its been cold and windy so I would guess it is still half way decent but don't quote me on that.
