Front channel yesterday/Sunday. Plenty of ice in my area (5-6”) but fish not biting. Lockjaw. Just a few small gills and perch. No wonder I had the place to myself.
Fished dead end channel by river. About 6 in ice. Saw so many small bluegill on my marcum camera and 1 crappie. Was out there from 1-345. Got 2 decent gills at 8-9”
Below 40° F
26° - 30° F
Fished with Jeff today, 12-4. Very windy and slow bite. We got about 25 gills all very small. Fished the dead end channel closest to the river. Ice was solid 6 inches. No weeds to be found, water clear.
Was out on front channel yesterday/Sunday. One spot, 3 inches of ice with slush on top. Didn’t feel like moving around. Would not go out today. Fishing was slow for me. Very light bite.
Out Wednesday lots of small fish. Managed a meal o keepr gills> Ice 4-5 in and solid!
Anyone been out? Ice still good?
31° - 35° F
Was out sat. morning. Fished all over. Not only did I do poorly but everyone else I spoke to did same. Never saw a keeper caught all morning, and very few dinks.
31° - 35° F
Was out yesterday with a couple buddies. Ice depth was around 4-5 inches everywhere we went. Fished the front channels. Did really well. Lots of shorts, but lots of keeper fish too. Not a ton of people out. Felt good to get back on the hard water.
