Fished from 8 until 12:30. Bite was good to begin with, but slowed as the day went on. Used waxies and jigs( color not an issue). Had to sort for keepers. Ice was about 15 inches and the shore line was good. Don't know how it held up with all of the rain. Lookinf forward to get out once more if the weather holds.

Fished from 8 until noon. Fishing was slow and we had to grind them out for a meal. Fished the front channels.  About 8-10 inches of snow on the ice made for tough going, some snowmobile tracks but still tough. Had kept 7 for a meal 1 nice crappie and a bull gill with 5 7 inchers. Waxies and spikes were used.

The back channel behind Hermanns has 8”-10” and earlier this week the fish were biting. The front channel has a good few inches & was slushy but may be more firm after that deep freeze

After slow start at Pistakee, had to get my fish fix on at the channels. Caught plenty of gills mostly on the small size, but did end up with several nice ones. Used red spikes and water was clear for sight fishing.

About 3"-6" behind Hermanns and there have been quite a few people out there. There is a fishing tournament there this weekend & they will be providing guidance to get into safe ice on the front channel as well.

Fished the back channel on Sunday, not my preferred spot at Nielsen's but it turned out to be a very productive venture. Got on the ice at noon, used the camera to look around and saw lots of gills, a few bass and schools of shad moving through,fished till 4pm. Our party of four caught well over a hundred fifty fish, keep 4 legit 8"+ gills and 33 more 7"+, a very tasty meal. With all the people fishing and seeing lots of fish just looking but not partaking on the spikes and waxes offered, it was great afternoon, thanks to Herman's (Wayne) for providing awesome parking at a reasonable price.

Agreed- the back channel is swiss cheese. Lots of pressure on those gill and it's starting to show in their bite. Hopefully we can start fishing larger bodies this weekend

Yeah there is ice but it's only one channel, the rest are 2".  And obviously that channel has been fished over and over again.  It looks like swiss cheese.  I got some small bluegills, and maybe three keepers yesterday.  Only for sure safe spot I know.
