How is the northern action on here? Been catching 30-40" muskies more often than northern and wondering if anyone else is seeing the same?
21° - 25° F
First time out here... ice is 13 inches everywhere I measured. Very little fish.... have a hard time staying on the hook
36° - 40° F
Ice fished off the landing this afternoon out to the island. There is decent walking ice and not a whole lot of snow left on top. Maybe 4 inches of snow. The ice thickness varied from about 7in down to about three. The area around the island was kind of sketchy. A couple of snowmobiles went passed it over the weekend but now there is some standing water on top of the slush. That is the area where I found only two or three inches of good ice also. Other than that it was pretty good for foot travel fishing although no bites.
Musky fished on Wednesday from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and did not see a musky. Water temp was 50. We tried rubber, Medussa, toad, bulldog, suick, gliders, phantom and hellhound, spinnerbait, and had small suckers out, Nothing.
