Be carefull,ice is getting iffy.Access off the wooden bridge is still good.Stay away from the open water edges.2 adults and a small child fell thru on sat.Went out earlier this am,still about 4-6 inches of ice but can feel ice moving up and down in places.Thankfully water is only 3-4 feet deep.Not a bite today,went into town and got bit but no takers.Going to give it a couple of weeks for water clarity to improve.On a side note: at the dam in town 2 guys throwing large baits,said they were practicing catch and release which they said is ok.There is NOT a catch and release season,you can not even target game fish.Henry will catch you.

Stopped at the ditches yesterday,people still ice fishing.Went on the ice myself.Found a good place to get on,Saw a buddy fishing,action was kinda slow but most places had 6-8 inches of good ice.Mentioned to him about the guy using large shiners on tip downs i saw the other day.It seems this guy is a disabled vet who thinks that because he is disabled that the rules do not apply to him.I guess dnr has talked to him and gave him a warning but as soon as dnr leaves he goes back to his old ways.It is kind of hard for dnr to sneak up on people in this area unless they park on the road side and approach people from the woods.Crappie and gill action in town is a bit iffy,one day it is good,next day nothing.Did take home 8 nice 8-10 in. crappies home yesterday.

Went out yesterday to see how much ice there was.Hoping to do a little soft water blue gill fishing.The bay part of the ditches was still ice covered and people were still tce fishing.One guy had 3 tip-downs out baited with 6 inch shiners(maybe thinking this would fool dnr).Two other guys had tip ups out but did not see what they were using for bait.Be carefull guys,this place has become a hot spot for the dnr to check pretty much on a daily basis.On a brighter note there is a spot in town where the gills and crappies are biting pretty good,Saw a 13 in. crappie caught the other day.

Fished from noonish till around 3pm the other day.Nothing biting in the bay,most fish caught in the channel.Most gills around 6-7 inches.Used plastics.Seemed to prefer small jigs with red or purple plastic.Beware of shore ice!!!Went to step off the ice and broke thru.Only about 18 inches of water,but because i am handicapped i could not catch my balance and fell and got soaked.
