Fished the last two days without anything happening . Water temps were good , skies were high tho' . My usual vertical jigging with plastics did not yield a fish . Puzzling , I've rocked on this lake with this set up for almost 25 years !

I have not been to Lyman, but I imagine it is a safe bet that you will be fine with a wheeler.  Very wet ice, so rubber boots are a must....  As always, be careful and safe.  Tight lines, JH

Taking my wife and some friends out tomorrow. Trying to find a lake that has a decent ice bite for anything. They will just want to soak tipups and I will probably jig? Would Lyman be a safe bet?


Anyone been out on the ice recently? Would I be safe getting out with an ATV?

Yea, it is a sad sight to see indeed.  About 5 years ago or maybe 6 or 7 we had no problem boating on average 3 skis in a day.  Best day was a 7 ski day.  Now we are lucky to tangle with 1.  Its unfortunate!  It used to be a class A ski lake for sure as far as number went.  Never could get big ones, but never had a problem catching fish in the 30's to early 40's.  I also recall a ice fish day where my brother caught a 37" pike about 7 yeas ago.  I got slack from everyone when I told them it was from Amnicon.  No one believed me, that next spring boom another big pike in the upper 30"s.  Then the following years, it was not uncommon to catch em.  They got smaller (assuming from guys taking out the trophys and reporduction), but the numbers increased and the ski number took a dive~  It is unfortunate indeed.  Good Luck!  Here is a pic of a pike we caught one day about 6 years ago....

Thanks Jarrid.  I wasn't sure if the stained water on lyman changed the dynamics at all with suckers?  I fish suckers on Amnicon in the fall, but that lake has really gone in the tank.  I've never seen a lake with that many little pike!  I seriously doubt there are any musky fingerlings making it through that many pike, I suspect that's why the musky population appears to be dwindling.

In my opinion, Lyman is very similar in nature to its relatives (Amnicon and Dowling) with which both have a fall sucker bite.  I would not hesitate for a second to soak a big sucker on Lyman in the fall.  Anytime of year for that matter can produce a fish.  Ive always had better success on Amnicon for skis, but I dont really target them.  Lyman is as good if not better for fishing.  Less pressure that is for sure!  Good luck
