This report is for 1/20/18.

We hit the ice at about 6:30 in the morning and started in deep water looking for crappies with no luck after drilling about forty holes. We then moved shallower to a weed edge in about 8 to 10 fow and saw crappies holding tight to the weeds with the camera. Set up on the spot and as luck would have it the first fish was a healthy 17" walleye and managed a few crappies as well but when the sun got high enough everything pushed out deeper except for dink gills. We also setup four tip ups and had four flags, one false trip and 3 northern at 21" 27" and a fat 36". Fishing was slow after noon and we packed up around three and left. Lots of people out with a spread of tip ups but didn't see anyone running to flags where we were at, I'm sure all the ATV, UTV and snowmobile traffic doesn't help the fishing.

Gave Silver a try today from 10:30am to 3PM  no flags, caught 2 small perch that was it.  Lots of guys out, only a few trucks on the ice, but plenty sleds and ATV's.  Saw a guy catch a small walleye in 30 fow very few fish caught from the guys I talked with.  When I left there was quite a bit of water on top of the ice.

Are their any bad spots if going out on the dnr launch? With all the snow they could be hard to spot if any. Thank you for any information you may post

I'm going to have a few hours to kill on Friday. I'm thinking about trying my luck out here. I am traveling for work so it will be all catch and release for panfish. Any tips or areas of poor ice?

Thanks.

Today I fished on silver lake. It was very easy to catch a lot of fish in clear water through clear ice. My legs hurt from running to my flags going up all day long. Tipup, medium roach, 4-8 FOW, 15 bass. Easy pickins.

A few things with clear ice...

Put on ice creepers, trust me on this one!

Tip-ups are a great choice, you can even fish them with light lines, rigs, etc. for perch and panfish, just set them really light on the trigger..  Using tip-ups get's you away from where you are fishing, less chance of spooking fish.  Even better is a "wind" setup that will jig for you when you are away from it.  I do this with balanced rods mounted on small tripods (home made).  By adding a 3" square, the wind will jig for me.  Once again, you can get away from it. 

Silver has a nice weed line, especially off DNR launch on north side.  Clear ice can help you find some holes and edges that can really produce!
