Fished this afternoon near the mouth of Squaw Bay. Caught about 20 bluegills, kept 8. It was really slow today. Only a few others out when I was there. Shoreline refroze and access was good. Won't last long this week. My prediction for ice out on the 20th will be about 10 days later, I think, although I doubt you'll be able to access the ice by next weekend.

Fished near the mouth of Squaw Bay this morning. Only two other guys out where I was. Needed a board to get onto the ice but it was still over a foot thick. Tons of small ones but managed to keep a few for a meal for my family and I. Started out real slow this morning and it picked up around 10:30. By 11:30 I could hardly catch a fish. Left at about noon.

Winnequah Tr Boat ramp access is limited right now. Storm sewer run off just to the capitol side of ramp has destroyed pretty much the first 5-6 feet of ice both east and west of boat ramp about 50 yds. Really sketchy. Once you get out on the ice it's ok. Walked out to the rock pile and decided too windy and sketchy getting on and off the ice. Walked over to Squaw bay and got one small northern about 715am. Nothing after that. Middle of squaw is down to 4" or less. An area about??? 20yds by 50yds is not safe. If you're paying attention you'll see the open water. Good luck and stay dry and safe.

Hit the ice about 645am. Had first flag by 7am. 24" pike. Next fish I had was 1155am. Saw two guys land two pike about 30 min apart from the same hole. Other than that. Not much happening.


Use caution as I stated in previous post near the middle of the bay but out closer to the summer time boat navigation channel. Its only 4' deep under those thin spots but you can see them once you get close enough. Walk with caution around them.

Today? Not much happening. Lots of people out but only couple flags. Guy near us had a break off and 15 min later my friend had a break off. Shiners for bait. The other guy was jigging along weed line for gills. Never saw him catch a single one. Didnt notice anyone else having any luck either.


USE CAUTION when walking towards the boat channel (summer time) aprox in middle of bay, There is some open water. NOT from auger holes. This is thin, Very thin ice that was melting today due to temps and sun. 6" + around the open water for ice depth but I didnt venture any closer than about 15' to check. Wasnt worth the risk for me.

Was out today from 6:30am till just after 1 pm. Buddy and I had total of 9 flags. Two were wind trips. One was 26" northern and the others were hit/runs/drops. One was running quick but hookset failed. Best action was after 9:30am till about noon. Just before noon we had three flags in 20 min. All three pieces of bait had "Tooth damage" from whatever ran with them. Didint see much else happening.


Ice depth where we were was for sure over 9" and couple of our holes had an easy 12". Lake was really making noise today with ice cracks from the wind pushing down and the temps changing so much from what it's been the last week or so.

Squaw has been very slow. The bluegills are tiny and the pike seem to be nonexistent.
