Do any good?   Ice ok?  Thinking of coming up Sunday for a few days. If ice good now should hold based on what I saw in forecast fingers crossed.

Thanks for the info.  Any update after would be awesome.  Still debating if Coming up. My wife is all for it so that should make the decision easy     As they say any day fishing is better than work and can’t catch them from the couch!


thanks!

The ice is still holding up after all this crazy weather. The bite was good but you have to catch a mess of dinks to get a few keepers. I got plenty of exercise hunting for a decent size fish. Still a great day on the ice.

Hi guys.  I had a great fish weekend at galena January 12-14.  Strong bite on Gil’s and crappie.  Some nice perch Friday night. 

How is ice holding up?  Almost gone down here in central Illinois.  Errr.  


May at come back up next month.

Walmart in Galena usually has waxies although they were out today. I am close to Savanna and I get my bait from Beavers gas station they have waxies and minnows. That's about 30 minutes from the territory. I would suggest you stop along the way not sure what route you are taking. Other   than that Dubuque Iowa has a place called The Bait Shack that is about 45 minutes from the territory.

We have had quite a bit of rain around here and warmer weather, not good for the ice.  I have seen a few people fishing and I plan to go myself soon but if this weather keeps up like this we are going to have a very short season.

Besides all that good news fishing has not been that great this year. I am hoping things will turn around or I will have to change my game plan. Perhaps Chippewa Falls.

Went out for the night bite,got set up around 4ish. I had tip ups set with the   largest minnows I could find. Does anyone know who might have shiners in this area? I had two hit on the same tip up about an hour and a half apart, I felt the fish but missed the hook set. I need to work on my patience. Jigging was slow lots of dink gills.

The bite was slow and lots of dinks I brought home 6 gills nice size. I did see a few perch and bass on my Aqua vu. I hope this weather calms down some,10 below one day and 45 the next it just isn't right. Anyone else doing any good?
