Got out yesterday afternoon fishing was slow to say the least moved around quite a bit seen many others doing the same caught 2 perch a big blue Gill and a baby white bass seen a few good crappie and white bass get caught but not many very slow ice was good but slush was bad in spots probably my last time on the ice this season looking forward to open water
46° - 50° F
I think you should be able to get an ATV on at the preserve off of Rollins road.
Fished from 7-2 today, and picked up 7 nice white bass, but tons of dinks.. marked fish practically all day, just couldn’t get the suspended marks to go. For me, all the active fish seemed to come off the bottom which were predominantly white bass with a few crappie thrown in - no keeper crappie though...
Tried spoons and several different plastics - different colors, shapes and sizes - and the fish just didn’t seem as interested. The only way I was able to get them going was using a small tungsten jig and 2-3 spikes. By about 2p, they kinda quit chasing and weren’t coming up for anything, so I called it a day.
As for the travel, there is plenty of snow on top( on average, anywhere from about 5-7”), but considering some of the other lakes in the area, it could be a lot worse. Followed snowmobile tracks out to my spot to help with the walk.
Good luck and tight lines!
It's there anywhere to access this lake with a UTV.
Was out this past weekend... tough bite. Marked fish but had a tough time getting them to go aside from the 3” white bass and 4” crappie. Upsized my bait to a blade bait (1.5-2”) to try and get more of a reaction bite and got the bigger marks to chase 12-15’ off the bottom, but still couldn’t quite get them to seal the deal. Jigs and grubs or jigs and plastics just didn’t seem to have the same effect.
Be careful out there.. There is a crack working North to South from the point with the flag where the ice looked very dicey, so I did not cross it. Hopefully that area will firm up with the cold temps we are getting this week.
WHO IS FISHING THE DEEP POINT AND HOW FAR DOWN THEY SUSPENDED ...LAST YEAR THE MAGIC SPOT WAS 15 FT DOWN IN 25 FOW.....FISHING THIS WEEK BETTER IN THE MORN OR AFTERNOON?.....
coach kwj, sorry I didn't see your question sooner! We were trolling very shallow, maybe 3-5 ft. if that. White bass and other species will come high in the water column to feed on bait fish, and we just happened to find a school of them.
