ICE DEPTH
13 inches
Fished Munger Saturday and Sunday 2/1 and 2/2. Tips ups with medium shiner minnows were absolutely quiet--not a single flag the entire weekend. Fared okay on perch, but not as fast and furious as previous outing 2 weeks ago.

4.5 FOW was best again, waxies on glow/white jig heads, with spring bobbers a must. Finicky bite, jigging or dead sticking from bottom to 6" below the ice. Periodically tried a variety of jigging spoons, including the 1/2 oz Vibrato, but no action there. Couple of crappies twilight Sat, only one a keeper.

Tried something new this trip--got the idea from an internet posting for "artificial weeds"--strands of vertical plastic weeds weighted on one end that you drop down a hole to provide structure for fish to orient to. Liked the idea, but not the price they were asking. At our local Michaels crafts store, found 9 foot strands of shiny green St. Patricks day foil garland for 6 bucks each. Tied a 2-3 oz weight in the center, added flotation to the ends. Rigged 3 of them. On the ice, sent one each down three holes about 3 feet apart. (Yes, we retrieved them before before leaving the ice)

No underwater camera, so I can't say for sure what was going on below, but we did seem to mark and hold more fish to the area after our "foliage" was in place. Ended the weekend with 15 keeper perch and 1 keeper crappie.

Not sure when I'll get back to Lakewood. Good luck if you fish Munger.

Fished Sat-Sun-Monday 1/18, 19, and 20th. Sloppy surface with heavy layer of slush and snow made getting around on the ice really tough Sat and Sun, firmed up for easier walking on Monday when temperatures plunged. Only one bass and a hammer handle northern on tip ups the first day, otherwise tip ups remained silent. Didn't even bother setting them on Monday. Perch action was very good in 4 and a half feet of water--waxworm tipped ice jigs coaxed hits in the bottom 18 inches. Jig color didn't seem to matter much, but white/glow still a favorite. Action was good all day, but of the perch caught, 80% were too small to keep. We did get enough in the 9" to(rarer)12" size range for a 3 person fish fry Sunday night, and some for the freezer. Probably not getting back to Lakewood for a couple weeks now. Good luck if you fish Munger.

Fishing was very slow this weekend. Only managed a small hammer handle. Still nice to get out.
