CONDITIONS
Cloudy

ICE DEPTH
9 inches

AIR TEMP
21° - 25° F

Fished Rest late morning and early aft on Sunday, ice was 9-10 inches under the recent rain/snow event.  The hard pack top made for weird squeaking noise against the atv tires as we drove.

Some water under the hard pack where we were but not enough to get boots wet.

2 flags in the noon hour, pulled one 28.5 inch northern out.

Rsplash40:

I would suspect that all ice in the MW area is good with the exception of the current areas...  Not sure how much snow is up there on the ice, but can't imagine a lot...

Jake:

Shallow water lake in my area was 54* per reliable friends from two days ago.  Two mid-sized lakes two days ago were 57*.  Both of these lakes were 30 miles to the south of the Mannie.

I am guessing in certain areas, you will find these temps as well.

That's really interesting @beoutdoors715.  That explains why I was able to get boat on lift after one day difference.    Thank you.

Today was last day on chain for a few weeks.  I floated under bridge to clear lake , spotted lots of panfish and bass, guess I'd be a good place to fish from shore for those w/o acces to a boat of some kind.

Today fished mid morning on fawn/stone on my way home.  Theres nice drop offs on either end of the run towards the bridge.  Didn't get many panfish, maybe it's too deep yet for this time of year...  I'm still learning.   Moving to the shoreline opposite of the islands I was able to get a few nice ones, mix pan/rock bass.  Generally I think 3 to 5 ft of water deep.  Was fun.  I just fish simply, worms, some jig, some slip bobber all luck was closer to lake bottom.   I put'm all back, someday I figure I'll get bigger ones and make fish fry vs fish chips. Heh.

Caught a 22 inch smallie on a bed last Thursday. 

 Post pictures later, biggest bass i ever caught! Not to many on beds anymore Shiz but after this next week of recovery the bite should really turn on. I would think next weekend the 8th The bass will be hitting anything that moves!!! Good Luck! Water Levels moving up! Been up here almost a week now and rising daily. Was told damm not closed off but guess that's normal
