I was at Nugget either 2/3 or 2/4. When I go it's usually noon before I arrive. I've caught several 9" bluegills but only 1 11" crappie this ice season. I usually always encounter bass while fishing 1/32oz. pan fish jigs and 2 and 3# ice line, sometime I win sometimes the bass win. I focus on the ends of the "flats" were the lake turns east and try to find 12 fow next to 14 fow and 10 foot humps. Perch are usually hugging the bottom, feeding bluegill and crappie are 2 to 4 feet off the bottom. Nugget Lake really has a sundown bite going, same thing in the summer and fall. Personally, I'm conflicted about targeting 9" plus bluegills and am sort of self-pledging to release those. That may sound crazy to some I know. I'd really like to key on the big crappies and walleye. I've seen lots of big 11" plus crappie come out of the lake in the summer by those who have a serious handle on them. 2 things about tip up fishing for walleyes; 1) they don't want you to use minnows on the lake and 2) use of big fatheads, shiners or suckers is going to get me numerous gut hooked large mouths. I'd need much more information on location to target walleyes.
