Sunday, perch bite dies out late morning so, probly should get out early next time. Or, be mobile to chase wandering schools. Some tried but, wind was miserable for detecting bites if not in shelter. Many tippups spread over promising area with not a one going up. Gave up on the bluegills. Screens full of active fish chasing baits over several all day outings with only an occasional gill to confirm what they are, which is mostly small.

Measured 16" ice over 40fow last evening.. Thats all we did as cats not interested at all. Same as last couple tries. Mark some fish but not sure what? Not seeing the schools if baitfish we did when catching cats earlier. Time to search,,,or wait? Action often picks up 2nd week of Feb. No time to fish here for a week though.

Enjoyed the hot bluegill bite for 4 days. Only kept couple meals due to deep water so, some smaller fish can't recover, add few nice ones to bucket to make it worth getting knife dirty. Finaly decided to intentionaly keep a meal of nicer fish yesterday with partner. That jinxed it. 1-8" gill in bucket right away then only a few toosmalls that swam back down. Slowest day of year soo far.

Drove my 3/4 ton CHEVY on the ice with no issues yesterday. 

Fished from 8:00AM until about 1:00PM.  Two of us caught about a dozen mixed bag panfish in about 20 fow. Pretty slow.

Short try just to see. ?  Yup, still there. Not as thick or agressive but, enough schools drifting by to pluck one here and there if had more time.

Set over cribs in morning. Couldn't get bait to bottom, fish rising up to meet it. Most very small gills, few cleaners. Action slowed when sky cleared. Drilled holes to hop looking for perch in 20-35fow. No perch but, huge schools of suspended gills blacking out screen. At times schools 15ft deep in 30fow. Non stop action all rest of day till full dark. Tossed back hundreds 3-8", had to keep some less than 8 due to bloat coming from deep. Some gills grabing crappie minnows, most on waxies. Over broad area of no structure. An unusual situation for Swan, hope can be repeated. A few crappies at dark and a few flags, lost shiners on nort tippups over weeds. Thought catfish be in area too but, no hookups after dark. Pleasant sunny day to sit out with truck to block wind. Put in a lot of slow days, nice to hit a hot one for once. Pic of a few earlier in day.

Long day yesterday. Slow all day, handfull of tiny gills, 1 keeper, cpl flags. Then clouds moved in before sunset and gills started nipping. Dozen keepers up to 9+" and a 28" fat northern before it got dark. Yotes killed small deer south side of narrows. 4 eagles picking the bones clean. One small car driving on lake, I'm sticking to atv till have more cold weather. Too much warm runnoff entered to suit me.

That is a good spot for perch Redneck, close to where we've had some fast action with them for short periods but, then shuts down, they move around a lot. If lucky you park over a school that hangs around longer. Not far away a bit shallower a guy has had limits in half hour, ,, multiple days.


This evening we got cpl more wiskertrout, partner still out there,  just lost a biggun.
