Fished a backwater yesterday in search of panfish. Did pretty well, with 2 of us keeping 32 nice bluegills and 8 crappies. Largest bluegill was just under 10 inches, and the largest crappie was just under 12 inches. Crappies were out on the ends of downed trees, biting on minnows. Bluegills were shallow. We caught some of the gills on plain gold hooks below a float, and the larger fish were caught using a blonde Bimbo Skunk with a piece of red worm.

Thanks for reading my reports, and have a good weekend!

LOST my tackle bag at the gravel pit. Suspect it fell out of my sled coming up the bank on 2/7. I went and looked this morning it was not around. If found my # is on the jig box inside. I am down to 5 jigs and no plastic.

We fished Spring Lake from 7-1030am and caught one perch. Moved to Tillmont where we had one flag in 2 hours. Everyone I talked to was having the same bad luck.

SATURDAY Gremore Lake

Was an Ice Fisheree this weekend so plenty of fishermen in the area. Saturday fishing was SLOWWWWWW. Two perch and two flags in 8 hours. Talked to fishermen who fished Tillmont, Mud Slough, and all the spots up the Ambro. A few fish here and there, but very slow.

We had around 4 inches where we fished. Don't know about the channel. Good fishing!

Ted aka "Legend" and I took to the ice this morning. We headed for an early ice honey hole where we had to walk atleast a mile to get to it. The river has been pretty high in the last week or so, and it has been dropping, hard! Our honey hole had stiff current in it, so it was a bust. We pulled out and went to another spot where we've been catching a few fish. It was a tough bite, but we hung with it and iced a nice mess of bluegills along with this nice crappie that the legend caught. I think the falling water has them spooked, as the ice was popping and cracking pretty loud. Good excuse for the slow bite, anyway!

Great to be out there! Thanks for reading my reports, and have a good week!

Steady bite today. Two of us kept 35 fish, all bluegills, but 1 nice crappie, which fell for a rosey red on a tip-up. The gills liked a red jig with 2 red spikes. 5-8 fow. The ice is really going fast. Today we had to go onto the ice by walking the plank. The ice was very slick today, so be sure to wear your cleats. This afternoon water was standing on the ice and running down the holes. Things are changing very fast. I'd say we lost a good 10 inches of ice in the last few days. Be very careful out there!

Thanks for reading my reports and good fishing!

Finally a nice day to fish! Low 20's a dream. Fished our first spot, and after a couple of hours, we had 3 crappies and a perch. Decided to try another area, so we packed up and drove a few miles South. Got set-up and fished a couple of hours, keeping 3 bluegills and a perch. Sad The fish are down there, they just are harder than heck to catch. I guess we just have to keep fishing, because they will start feeding....hopefully soon! The weather looks much better in the next couple of weeks, so looking forward to the spring bite. Should have lots of time. My Jiffy barely gets through. I'd like to buy an extension, but everywhere I've looked, they are out. Imagine that!

Thanks for reading my reports, and have a great week!

My oldest Grandson, Will just turned 12, and he wanted to go ice fishing for his birthday. The fish were all over our electronics and camera, but like in past days, they were extremely picky. If you moved the jig too much, you would not notice the super light movement of the spring bobber. Lots of missed bites. Ended up keeping 9 crappies and 7 gills for a fish fry. Lost a few other crappies at the hole. Wish the bite could have been better for him, but we still had a fun day out on the ice.

When the weather finally warms up and these fish start getting hungry, it should be a blast! Until then, will have to work a little harder for them.

Thanks for reading my reports, and have a great week!
