Fished yesterday over basin 24 fow was hoping for crappies, instead found a school of perch caught them the entire 8:30-noon bite. Very aggressive if the bite slowed down I’d drop in jig size the back up to a spoon or just a treble hook under bobber. Managed 4 keepers, Used Rosies and spikes. Lost a northern at the hole after a 15-20 mins fight. Best day ice fishing this season.

Fished the northeast end from 5-7pm last night. Couple inches of slush and 6" of snow on top of the ice but travel wasn't bad with 4wd.
Caught a 16" eye and 11" crappie in 30fow. A lot of solid marks after dark but they hugged the bottom and weren't hungry.

No trouble driving out on the Northeast end of the lake but you need to be careful on where you drive on this lake. Tried all afternoon in a deep basin and never marked a fish. Caught some small gills and rock bass off of a crib and one small walleye. The 18" minimum size limit will hopefully improve the walleye size in this lake but it's still hard to catch many walleyes over that mark. The gill population is improving in this lake but the size is still small compared to many lakes.
