Hit the river in buddy's boat on Tuesday. Launched downtown and wide open from 106 bridge thru town, and to just up from VFW and marina, where there was a large ice flow block. Beyond that, the channel was open. We drove over to the bypass launch at end of day, and it was locked up pretty good then. 

We boated about 15 eyes/sauger with three legals in the mix, all on jig/minnow. No hits on plastic. Only boat on the water, but that might change with this weather. Downtown ramp was a mess, with a foot or so of mud on the lower section....bring boots.

Junk.  Beware of knockoffs! Much variation! The original tables are from John Alden Knight.  I get their calander and pamphlet.    Got it for about 60 yrs. I read about it in the original FISHING FACTS And SECRETS newspaper.    (Which I still have).     CARPIO

Carpio,

Yes they did - once they got it on the road it fell off the trailer...lol.  Sounded like they were laughing so all good.  Real slow bite overall - not much happening in the few boats around us. Glad we stuck it out till the moon phase.  It has proven itself over and over - especially on tough condition days - firm beleiver.  Found this site while back - love it. Tight lines.

Ice junk.     I was at the tavern today for lunch. Did they ever get the sunken piers out!    I try to impress upon people about the importance of moon phases!  Read MOON UP MOON DOWN.    I saw one dink caught near the bait shop.  CARPIO

Launched off Groeller and went up river. Was out from noon to 4:00pm yesterday. I ended up with 7 shorts and one 19” walleye. Water was higher than normal due to last weekend’s rain. Jig with yellow/chartuse speckled Gulp worked best. Fish seemed be in the middle of river channel at 12 to 14 deep.
