Only 1 dinky perch today around Clearwater bay; no one near me had action in 6 fow.  Beware natural springs, which I’ve not seen until today.

Fished with 3 friends from 7-12:30 today on the south pool. No action at all on the jigs or tip ups. Only marked 2 fish all day. Talked to others out there seamed like no one was having any Luck. Ice was 5-6 inches every I drilled.

@lenny23 if you get a chance to get back out Thursday could you send an update on ice condition. I would appreciate it.

Was out Saturday 1/28.  1.5 - 2 inches at the boat launch. Saw another guy fishing the dock with his auger. Walked out to 6 feet and jigged for 20 minutes . Bupkus. Will go back maybe Thursday ice should be better.  Will go to a different area.

Out 730-1030am this morning; cpr’d two 12” lmb & one small perch.  Below main dam near warm water discharge.  Fishing above dam is possible; shoreline fishing below would be difficult still with ice.  No one on north pool at 11am.  Safety & peace in 2023!  Tight lines always.
