Anybody been out on shell lake planing on heading up next weekend with the ice castle. Never fished it is the ice usually pretty good for driving? I’m thinking it is but just need a little more comfort in pulling the house out.

Went out last night and caught one pike jigging. Walleye action seems very slow right now with everyone I've talked to also. Ice is 6" and atvs running around in south bay. Not sure about the main lake.
Hey we are going up on the 16th of July would love some advice on Walleyes and Bass both Large Mouth and Smallies. Very familiar with the lake but it been a few years. Used to catch Smallies on the island with crawlers bit water level and cribs changed the lake. Anything would help. Any species is good. Thanks

Hit the lake up a couple times last weekend. Smallies were just moving shallow after dark so my guess is that they were on the beds this week. best bait was drifting a leaf worm for smallies and slip bobber for walleyes It wasn't fast and furious but we managed to fill a few bags of fillets between smallies and the couple walleyes we kept.
Be back in a few weeks.

Fished the week of the 4th, lots of dead flies to start the week all over the water so I suspect the fish had more than enough to eat. Fishing was a tad slow but managed a mix bag fish for the fryer.
I've only fish this lake a few times but with family property in the area I would like to fish it more and learn it. I only found one crib so if anyone has coordinates for more cribs on the lake I would greatly appreciate it.
