Got out yesterday onto Gages.

Kids had fun. Ice was decent. An inch of crust over 5” of legit ice.


Caught plenty of gills around 14’.

One tip up of a small hammer handle pike at about 7’.

Was out for 5 hrs, 10:30-3:30...1 flag over a spread of, at one point w/all the kids, of 15 flags...so a bit disappointing. Didn’t see anyone else with much better luck either.

Had some guys on some old 2 stroke 4x4s having fun ripping around in the afternoon. Got kind of close to some of the tip ups, and kids got nervous they would be “squished” when they got near at full throttle ...big reason we called it early before the dusk bite.

Better luck next time.

Good luck fellas!

How’s the ice looking fellas?

Thinking of taking the kiddos out, wouldn’t mind staying close and hitting up Gages if possible, in case kids need to get off ice.

Thanks!

In response to Rcott, I've never fished this lake but if there are weeds, try to find a weedbed close to a decent drop and set your tipups about 10 feet away from the deep weed edge and set the bait between 1 and 2 feet off the bottom. This will work for pike and bass all day and towards dark might get a walleye or two. As for targeting walleye, i've had my best luck finding good sized flats and just drilling holes and jigging. Jigging Raps with a piece of minnow on the bottom hook are my best bet. Unless there is a good walleye population present, they can be hard to find.
