The beautiful weather this morning allowed me to explore more of the lake and do some hole hopping   . The pan fish were hitting in all spectrum's of the water column. Some as shallow as 5 FOW and some down to 25 FOW. Definitely had to work for this fish to bite and most of them were soft biters. 

I wandered off a bit on the eastern shoreline in search of weed lines and ended up catching little perch on 7 FOW.    Lures of choice were rattlin flying spoons natural colors tipped with minnow heads. It seemed like bright colors spooked the fish a bit.

Hi throwemback,


Yes I am getting on from the boat launch parking lot on smithtown road. If you walk right towards the lake from the parking lot, you are going right to the hole of the lake. Good luck!

FishNKayak,

Are you getting on the lake from Smith Road Parking lot? I am visiting my sister, who just moved into the area, this weekend and I am looking for a place to catch a few with limited time. Thank you

First time out ice fishing this season! I drilled into ice that was 7 inches thick and sat on the edge of the main hole at about 24-25 FOW. The water is still very warm at about 38-39 degrees. Boy were the pan fish hitting this morning! The crappies were hitting a many levels of the water column. Some were even as shallow as 6 FOW! Using almost any jig, plastics, and minnow heads I was able to pull out over a dozen 10-11 inch size crappies! I had a few little gills here and there. Man I love Lake Virginia in the winter! I will be back to sit on the deeper drop offs in the hole to target some northern pike   .

Thanks. Honestly the lake seems to have a decent bite on it all season. I feel like there is some pressure on the lake near spring, but otherwise they bite consistently

Nice videos.   Looks like fun.   Does that lake get heavy pressure later once the ice is thicker?  Thinking it may be better to target early ice.

With temperatures in the mid 40s I was able to do lots of hole hopping on the lake this morning. The pan fish were very shallow. I was taking fish at 7 feet of water! Crappie were very aggressive. Some were hitting my Lindy Rattlin spoon on the fall. Fun time!

Day 2 on the ice of Lake Virginia in Carver County Minnesota. Panfish were very fussy eaters today, but I managed to catch a few fun ones using jigs tipped with minnow heads.

First time out ice fishing this year for me!  Lake Virginia is still doing pretty good for being early in the season. The usual spots that kept fish on my line were not so hot this morning, but I did manage to find where the fish were stacked. They were closer to the west shore away from the hole in about 20 fow. I did get a few aggressive crappie strikes from 12-15 fow. Crappie were 10-11 inches. Can't wait for more fishing to come!

Great video, I appreciate you posting.  I might go out this weekend on Lotus or Bryant.  I will take my 6 man house.  Would love to have you join me and my friends and family.  Give me a shout, Hicksie
