Walked down the tracks at Dam on south end of the lake. Mixed bag...Pulled out crappie, bluegill and very small perch. Most were small, the ones 10 inches and above I kept to eat (crappies and gills). 2nd time spring fishing Dexter area, some pressure but not unreasonable. Fun day fishing. Used very small jig 1/80 and gulp 1”.
56° - 60° F
Any chance the ice is still safe to fish? Would like to get out one more time tomorrow for a couple hours but don’t want to drive from Marshfield just to check.
26° - 30° F
Fished off old boat landing in 7 to 8 feet of water out of current. No snow on ice cleats suggested. 8 crappies 71/2 to 10, 1 8in perch, 1 8 1/2 gill kept. waxworm on silver/copper marmooska best results, we caught fair amount of fish mostly small but better than none....very light bite, spring bobber inside shack to see bite necessary. good parking no vehicle traffic on ice, fewer fisherman than I expected. shoreline pretty good but it isn't gonnas get better. My cousin brought his wife who usually gives us a clinic on catching, she felt sorry for us today and let the BSers pull 'em in. Temperature was pretty warm but wind was raw, waxworms/minnows available at gas station/store across from park. Saw some guys with tipdowns out, not sure how that went. All fish we caught were off bottom, nothing really suspended. Dam on 54 was wide open, every once in a while water would cloud up then get clearer.
The yellow river North of Pittsville has opened back up today after the rain yesterday. Lot of flow going into the lake today. Id be very weary of driving out there. Its really not a far walk. I live on the river by the way.
36° - 40° F
Fished Sunday during the jamboree and there were probably 100 vehicles on the lake...big trucks parked side by side, etc. Dont know how much it melted today, but may fish it tomorrow and feel safe driving my mega cab ram out there. Quite a few fish caught on jigging with waxies, a couple decent (9"+ perch, a few 8-10" crappie, and a 8" fat bluegill) my buddy's girlfriend got a 16" bass on a tip up with a minnow, and saw a damn nice northern pulled up after the 3:00 time limit. Forgot to save pics from my snapchat, next time.
This coming weekend, it's Superbowl sunday 10 to 3 pm
