Hey guys, I noticed recently that the DNR printed a publication about their whitefish/Cisco populations and Oconomowoc was one of the standouts as far as populations. I've caught ciscos through the ice before and had a blast doing it. Had anybody run into them ice fishing?

MOON PHASE
Last Quarter

Out Sunday morning at 6 am.  Beautiful cool morning but fishing was dead.  No wind, moon, murky from recent storms- lot's of excuses.  Managed only a couple of small bass.

Temp was down to 71 in coolest spots in the morning and up to 74 in other spots as day warmed up. 

Didn't see much happening with others.  Will try again soon.

On the water by 4:00 pm for the late afternoon bite.  10 mph winds out of the SW put a good chop on the water and one would have thought, perfect conditions for the eyes to be active.  Not the case, threw everything at them, worked weed-lines, and deep water drop offs and all in between.  Ended up with 1 short eye (16") 1 LMB (17") and 1 northern (27").  Saw clouds of gills on the graph in 15 to 20 ft.  Found these schools and put the Minn Kota on anchor right over them. Jigged a small Kalin's sizmic grub and picked up a number of nice sized gills (8"+).

Honda.  For live bait Musky Mikes is about 1 or 2 east of the Oconomowoc launch in the village of Ochaukee.

Great shop and owners are very helpful with good advice.

I agree Breal, depending on the situation (conditions,time of year,water temps ect.) retrieve is a huge factor... don't get set on one bait all day, if it isnt working kee cycling through the goodies. That being said dont take a cast not catch anything then set it down. This time of year i like to work my way shallow to deep. Look for good bottom transition and good weedlines. Be patient and youll stumble upon something!

The one mistake I see the rookies make in my boat is trying to do too much with the worm. My wife usually outfishes half the guys in my boat..."less is more". Twitch-twitch---let it sit there. If you are popping that thing too fast and high, you won't get bit as much. Especially on a clear lake like this one...

Transition areas,outside weedlines, and points. Go deep and be patient. Use drop shot, shakey head, senko, but what seemed to be on last weekend was a tube with a light 1/8oz tube jig. Natural colors. Pop it off the bottom about 1-3' let it fall and sit for a 30 seconds and repeat! Also as far as drop shot smaller drop shot worms or a smaller paddle tail that mimics a small perch works great. Trust me you will not be disappointed, here are a few from last year.
