Long walk in the fog was worth the effort to explore a couple new areas we found last fall holding eyes. 

Took advantage of the Major and Moonset periods being close together and hit it as hard as we could. Caught 2 missed 2. 

Jigging 28-32 fow with Johnson Johnny Darters in Chrome/Blue and Uncle Rico. After dark schools of baitfish would light up the Vexilars suspended 20’ down and the walleyes would soon move through after them.

Drilled LOTS of holes in the area and didn’t spend more than 2-3 minutes in a hole before moving. Once the suspended bait was seen we’d work that longer

Got out mid day last Sunday with good results on big gills.  There were schools that were suspended in 40 fow down 18 to 22 ft that continually moved in and out of my spot.  I fished 2 holes....one with my Helix 7 Ice locator and one with my Marcum camera to watch the schools move in and out.  The camera provided an exciting experience because it allowed me to pull the bait away from the smaller gills and put it in front of the big boys.  Caught close to 100 fish keeping 12 nice ones for dinner.  I needed to drill 40 or 50 holes to find them but when I did it was worth it.

Set flags with shiners this morning before light for pike/walleye, 4 flags with only one 23 inch pike iced. Couldn't find any panfish action at all, fished til noon looking for perch and bluegill. The weather was lovely, almost 50 degrees but raining sideways with big gusts of wind. As much as 2 inches of water on top of the ice in some spots and some decent sized holes are opening up. Be careful walking in the dark as some holes are big enough to fall through and make sure you wear creepers or ice skates

Went out for a few hours after dark last night, three people. Put flags in, and tried for some panfish. Was a Dead Sea. Fished from 3ft all the way to 20ft. Wasn’t even marking fish on the flashers. Lot of water on top of ice and old holes were opening up pretty good. Watch where you walk.

Set tip ups this afternoon for walleye, only fish was a fat 30 inch pike. I've been searching for the walleye in this lake for the past two weeks and haven't found a single one. I know they're there because I've caught them open water but I can't find them for the life of me. If anyone has any pointers or wants to go out sometime shoot me a message

regarding parking for Ocon lake, the parking on Valentine Road is specifically for ice fishermen, the signs are clearly marked. Its a short walk to get over bridge and onto the lake.

For Ocon lake, there are no motorized vehicles  (cars) allowed on the ice. Quads and snowmobiles are permitted, but they can only come from private property. They cannot be launched from the walk on access by the bridge on Beach/Valentine rd. per police dept this morning.  Hope this helps
