Ice isn't good. I suggest make other plans. It is going fast with warm temps and rain. Looks like high winds this weekend which will make conditions much worse. If you must go out stay close to shore. Safety first.  Please be safe. I put away my stuff on the 18th of February. Isn't worth it in my book.

MOON PHASE (60%)
Waning Gibbous

CONDITIONS
Sunny

ICE DEPTH
13 inches

AIR TEMP
46° - 50° F

Fished this morning from 645am to 2pm. Caught 11 kept 8. Some small fish only 12 or 13 inches still swimming.  Fished 15 ft water. Water was murky. Never moved today nobody close to me. Landing is breaking up.  I walked out today. People driving over crack, not smart. Drain culvert at landing will eat it up quick. When fish came they were somewhat aggressive, caught on pimple and slider. I think I'm done this year for whitefish, ice will deteriorate quick with warm weather. And if we get winds the cracks will open. Be safe, be smart, and have fun. Good luck maybe see you by dam walleye fishing.  

Hopefully all the info I gave helps all you guys out that pm me. Patients, is the key and learning the technique is important.  I am glad to hear that it has helped a number of you. As the old saying goes, give a man a fish feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.  God bless and good fishing. See you next season on the ice.

ice update 2/16/17

there is a crack rite in front of the landing, saw couple people drove over the crack, i drove my full size truck onto the other side, look down on the cracked ice, you will see the ice move up and down. it was too sketchy for me to drive out and headed back. ended up going to red river. atv travel for volks is best, with the warmer temps i dont know how long the crack gonna hold. just be careful and use good judgment this weekend, everyone be safe and tight line.

ICE DEPTH
16 inches

The landing at Volks Launch is smooth and solid as of Wednesday afternoon.  Ice is 16 inches thick.  You can hear and see a few cracks but none that I saw were opening up.  I put the new shack I built on the ice saturday and with the warm weather coming I took it off wednesday.  After over 50 years fishing, I finally build a shack just in time for "Global Warming"!   Fishing report: Fished 7 to 1 pm.  Water was very murky.  Again, fish was slow. Saw one nice eye right away.  Put a couple whities on the ice early then it was dead until noon.  They were more aggressive for half an hour.  Caught and released couple small ones and one more keeper. lost several at the hole.  Pimples and slider/floater worked equally well.

Tight lines, stay safe and hope for cold weather!

Don't stay from sun up to sun down. Usually start around 7 am to 230pm tops. The fish are there.  That's why I commented on keeping notes. And I don't claim to be any kind of whitefish king. Their are hundreds of thousands of whitefish in the system.  Not really a hard fish to find. When you find them you will catch them with proper technique.  Good luck fishing. I have messaged many people helping them with technique. What size and colors I use. I am more than willing to help. Good luck fishing.
