Can you still get on the lake, or are the shorelines shot?

Today I checked the Southwest side and found 4 inches of ice. Then I went to the Northwest side and checked two spots up there. Both spots had 5 inches of white ice. Shoreline was 3 to 3.5 inches. I caught quite a few small perch. Kept three 9 inch perch and two 7.5 inch gills. Most were caught with a size 14 gold tungsten jig, plastics and spikes both worked.

Wondertucky1 took out his boat this afternoon.  I would classify today as “quality over quantity.”  Okay, we only caught three fish; two bass and one walleye.  The walleye measured 28” and weighed in at 8 lbs 4 oz.  The walleye smacked a lipless crank and the two bass were fooled by a spinnerbait.

Not seeing too many posts this year.  Here's a crappie that hit Wondertucky1's soft stickbait.  He definitely out-fished me last week, more than doubling my catch.  He caught a dozen bass, but only one was a smallmouth.  We normally catch more smallies than largemouths, so it was an unusual day . . .

Just got off the ice, 3 to 4 inches black ice and 2inches of re-frozen slush. I was fishing west side about mid lake. Kept 6 crappies and 2 perch. Threw back about the same.

I got the invite to come fish wonder lake today with Pantera. We had an absolute great time. We started off on the west side of the lake about seven fished for an hour didn’t catch much moved out to the middle and hammered the Croppie‘s and bluegills and some perch for the next two hours stayed out till 11 AM Ice was still in good shape around 6 inches saw some guys with four wheelers out i was very impressed by the size of the crappies the fisheries in decent shape we caught about 50 crappies and bluegills. All fish returned to Lake to grow Becker. Most of the fish we caught were 8 to 11 inches.

Sorry Fishguy no derby today. They pushed it back 2 weeks. We wont get a derby this year. Its gona be 40 and rain. 

I never did go out. My aunt had a fit and told me to stay off the lake because the ice wasn’t safe. It was fine for a walk, but I just blew it off. Sorry no ice report fellas.

We fished the island lake lions club tournament yesterday. It was on Island Lake Illinois. The ice is pretty good out there. Everywhere I drilled was at least 8 inches.
