Fished from 7 to 11 am. 5 of us only managed 5 keeper gills and 1 crappie, no flags. Really slow today. Got 2 man limits of gills (10) last 2 trips but only got 1 flag all year seems weird.
lol, at least they put the $ towards the lake and stocking. It's been better since all these bullshit fees but I understand what you guys mean.
It wouldn't surprise me if they're probably trying to figure out how to charge people for breathing "their" air while fishing on the lake :(
That would be a bad idea. They will try to put a fee on it for using it.
We should post this link around the lake so we get more consistent updates

Went out on Saturday & Sunday this weekend, and even with the near 50º temperatures and sun on Sunday, ice was still 5" thick. Saturday was very slow, fish were hugging the bottom and didn't really want to bite. But on Sunday, panfish & crappie were biting like crazy...most were still hugging the bottom, but some crappie were suspended at 8-10' in 15' of water.
Last couple evenings slow dinks here and there, ice about 5” maybe little less on the South end of the lake..
Talked to the police on the lake and confirmed the Gill daily bag is 10 per day. He told me someone keeps peeling the updated sticker off the signs in certain places around the lake, they will be fixing them again shortly. This pic was from the Bait shop at Wauconda Boat. I never take that many just wanted to know for myself as well just in case.
I was out today, ice was about 5 to 6 inches every where I was. Fishing has been real slow last few days, the 5 people I talked to one small perch was caught today between us.
Anyone been out this week, if so what are the ice conditions?
Anyone out on the ice today?
