Back out the ice Tuesday, the weather was cold, 6 degrees and windy. Fished the Lilly pad area's in the Back waters. Started fishing in 4-5 ft water, caught 1 nice crappie right away and a few small blue gills, pretty slow. So we started drilling holes along Lilly pad edge were the water depth dropped to 6 ft, then the vexlair started marking more fish. 3 hrs later we had 18 yellow perch and one more crappie flopping around on the ice, inside our warm new Otter Lodge Hub Shelter. And that made it well worth being out on the cold windy day. Good luck, and keep searching around you may find some nice ones. Cool

Had the Pleasure to make it back out on the ice this weekend, The back water Ice conditions are improving in the non current areas, I had 4" of hard clear ice. ICE is Still thin and UNSAFE in any and all of the current areas. I concentrated my efforts in the weed pockets in 4 to 5 feet of water. Fishing was slow but steady Marking fish on the Vexlair, many were just lookers but then bam one would suck it in. Fished 5 hrs, finished the day with 2 nice crappies, one super slab just over 15" (that made the day) 6 nice gills and one big ring perch, Best bait for me today was the ,50th oz VMC Wax Tail Jig (Bait Shack in Dubuque has them).Looking forward to the great Pan Fish Dinner. Good luck and stay safe in the non current, back waters. Cool
