Fish moving up and staging. Bass every where, caught a lot, but nothing of size. Saw huge schools of carp, wish we could get rid of them. The carp are mucking up the shorelines and I'm sure not helping the spawning of other species.

Missing tackle box on Lake Ripley. I was out fishing Saturday, February 3rd on Lake Ripley, and my tackle box (it has a red cover and white bottom) must have fallen off my sled on my way back to the car. If anybody finds it, please give me a call at: 920-296-7785. Thanks!

Went out Friday at 2pm and fished until 830. 2 flags before nightfall and landed 2 low 20s pike. Switched over for walleye and had 3 flags. First time I’ve ever pulled a rock bass up through the ice. A 10.5”. Second flag I missed the hookset. Third flag of the night I pulled out a bullhead. Can’t say that’s ever happened to me before.
Ive fished ripley religiously for quite a few years. Last season I thought the fishing was on a decline but this season it’s even worse.
