Fished on the Kmart side a couple of hours this morning. 2 crappies and 1 bluegill. No other bites. No one else out on this side. Looked like about a dozen people out on the Hwy 12 side, so assuming they're doing better over there. Or maybe it's just a shorter walk through the snow and slush.
16° - 20° F
Fished in 5 to 6' of water off highway 12/16 boat landing for about 5 hours. Only 1 small crappie. Not marking anything. If you do mark a fish on bottom, the don't bite. Very very slow. Even in shallows they are not getting anything. Had 2 tip ups closer to shore and not a single flag.
Still solid 6-7" of ice off boat landing off highway 12/16. Nice 22" largemouth caught on tip up in shallows. Caught some nice size bluegills on waxies but you really need to work for them. Fished in 2-3' of water. No crappies. Need to fish deeper 6-7'.
Has anyone floated the river from new lisbon to decorah lake and fished? Is it worth doing? TIA!
Fished from 9 AM to 1 PM. Went off boat landing on highway 12/16. Fished in 6-1/2' water. Ice thickness 10". Caught 3 nice 11" crappie and released some smaller ones on waxies. Lots of action on flasher but most wouldn't bite.
Anyone got any results on the tourney,was down there around 1 to grab some raffle tickets but couldnt stick around.
There was a decent sized open spot straight out from the boat launch this afternoon. Lower part of the lake had open spots along the entire channel. I’m not familiar with this lake however I was in the area for work and stopped by to check it out.
Looked pretty rough this afternoon. There was an open patch about 100 yards off the boat launch today. Lower part of the lake the channel is wide open. I only saw the one open spot in that bay and not too Familiar with that lake. A lot of people driving in and checking out the ice and saying the same thing I am.
