The crappie bite is definitely on.  Use a slip bobber and minnows four foot below the the water surface.  Also plastics on a quarter ounce jig has worked well on a slow retrieve. Put yourself in about 12' of water. I got into 12 and 14" crappies.

My final outing of the season resulted in some great late ice jumbos. It always blows my mind that fish can even survive the winter with all the pressure here and not end up in hot oil. Till next year!

Wow, and I though I was pushing it going out last week. How people could be so ignorant and reckless just amazes me. If ice rescue did come, I hope they get charged every penny and not on the tax payers. Idiotic, fishing is never worth your life.

Stopped down by the landing this morning. 6-8 guys pressing there safety.

Ice very saturated. Dark spots scattered. Few airboat fisherman out towards airport lights.  Open water and very dark Ice as you head towards the spillway. Open water out on the main shallow lake. 

Coming from someone with ice rescue background I don't understand the need to press there luck on late season deteriorating ice.  Just rattles me. By the time responding Resources are assembled. Time is of the essence. 

Fred funk landing on the upper north end is almost ice free. I bet one with a shallow water boat could reach the main channel if they wanted to stay away from the lock n dam hustle.

I was on the ice Wednesday afternoon. 17" ice.  Top 6"or so was honeycomb. 

Access onto the ice by Moseys was deteriorating. 10ft plank and that was getting sketchy.

Fishing was slow. We've had mild temps last couple days with some light rain today. I would put a fork in it if your coming from a distance.  Ice time is a wrap for me.

Anyone have an ice report/landing report? Wondering how everything is holding up after the warm weather and rain. Looking to take the wife out one more time if you are able to get on the ice. Thanks

There were quite a few wheelers out there today and even a pickup and a SUV, but they are asking for trouble.  I was out there today in a side by side and we broke a wheel through in two different spots. One of the spots is just southeast of the little Island to the south of half way creek.  If we would would have been twenty yards to the west of where a wheel went through we would have went through.

Couple hours on the ice this afternoon 2-5pm. Decent bite in 13fow. Kinda stalled out after 4pm. Threw back my biggest perch of the season at 13". Kept 5 perch and 5 gills for a Wednesday fish dinner.   

Ice doing OK. Still 20"+.  Top layer getting soft. Cold days ahead will firm up again. Couple trucks on the ice which I wouldn't advise. Good wheeler conditions still.  

Watching the military aircraft practice at Lacrosse regional never seems to get old.
