I have not been there in years, but I think it was a little walking to get to the spots. Probably no more than a 1/2 mile. I will take some pics tomorrow when I get out there and post them.

Fonzee,

i was thinking doing the same thing this Saturday. Maybe Even venturing north from ferry landing up by the springs or grassy. I assume not a lot of guys look at this thread so post back please.

Peace and Good Fishing,

Be careful around Ferry Landing - there is more current there than people realize and the ice can be dicey - I have no idea how it fishes since the corp dredged the entire area several years ago but I bet it is top notch.

I am going to try to go out to Fish Trap on Friday. I have not been there in years so I do not know what to expect or if the ice is even going to be safe at this point. I will post any updates. I would appreciate any info from anyone that has been out there. 


Thanks!

I wouldn't mind learning more about the backwaters as well.  I fished them 20 years ago and it was some of the best ice fishing.  My grandfather and I filled a bucket at Sabula.  It was unbelievable but I heard that spot is only good when the waters flood over.  Anyone ever hit Pike In the backwaters?
