Any ice reports? I was thinking about trying a night bite tonight or tomorrow.
It was rescheduled it is March 2nd now
Anyone make it out for the derby this past weekend? how was fishing? what were the catches?
What day did you lose it?
Did anyone happen to find the top piece of a hand auger on the ice or near the ramp on the northeast side? Thanks.
Good call !!

Went out on 2/5 from 9am-2:30pm. Fished between 8’-11’ of water. Ice was 5”. Walked out a little further about 350’ from shore and found 3”. Promptly stopped right there, placed, the tip up, and watched it stay idle all day. Bite was real slow. Had to hole hop to find anything. At the end of the day 4 bluegill and “hello rock bass 9” what a surprise”. Saw a Pike swim past. Even he looked pissed about the lack of weed coverage in the lake. Oy vey.
41° - 45° F
Yeah Ive been out 4 times including last Saturday and it was the dead sea every time. No flags and just dink bluegill and no signs of vegetation in every part of the lake we went that usually have weeds. I heard they just cut the weeds but unless they cut every weed in the lake to the root I have to believe it was treated for weeds too.
36° - 40° F
Went out between 9:30am-2pm on Sunday. Ice was slushy, with lots of standing water from all the snow melt, but 5-7" of ice below that. Drilled about 15-20 holes on the NW end of the lake searching for vegetation, but found none. I've heard the vegetation was cut this fall...it was pretty thick over the summer, so that may make some sense.
Around 10:30-11am, marked a school of perch in about 15 feet of water, and hooked a few small ones...no keepers though. Fish absolutely disappeared after that.
Not sure how the ice will hold up with more warm temperatures, and rain on the way, I'd bring a spud bar and ice safety picks if you have any inclination about going out this week.
