Fished round 2/9-2/11. Ice was in great shape (trucks everywhere). I did hit a small slush spot of the beaten path but nothing to worry about. Weather was COLD. This was my first time ice fishing round. Went after walleye. Fished a submerged hump Friday night (3-630PM). Had one take a foot of line and drop it. Saturday night (3-6PM) I tried a nice weedy bay. One little pike and a miss. Sunday morning (7-1030AM and it was -16 degrees on the truck) I tried a rocky point. Missed one. Went into a weedy bay and caught a nice pike. That was it. Tried jigging (with every bait in my box), had a few lookers but no takers. Friday was the first time I got skunked on a outing all year (I've been on the ice every weekend since 12/15). Heck, I didn't even mark a fish in over 40 holes. Don't consider myself a pro but I'm not a bad fisherman. Anybody else having better luck? I tried all I could for 3 days and was disappointed to say the least.
On a side note I saw a guy with a sleeper shack on the ice. A NICE one. He was camped out on a rocky point most of the weekend. Wanted to knock on the door and ask to come in and fish with him. Never have seen such a thing.
My family got a place on round this last year and this is my 3rd weekend fishing it in general. I will learn. From what I hear this is an amazing fishery and I cannot wait to explore more.
As always best of luck, FH
