6 in of good ice. Only saw a couple small fish so far checking my bait out. Besides the dirt bikes buzzing around all is calm.
I was out here last week, fished the back bay. Ice was about 6" with lots of snow and slush on top. The fishing sucked, a couple small gills and 1 bass in 5 hours of fishing.
Any ice report?
Did you go out and if so what was the ice depth?
I might try out here tomorrow for the first time. I've lived in the area for 3 years and never fished it. thinking it's time!
Beautiful lake and crystal clear water. Bluegills are normally white in color because of it. Northers are green because of the great weed patches throughout the ice. Drop off point is just south of the bar with the beach. If you use a shanty make it as dark as you can and you will be able to see the bottom [in shallow water] pretty easily.
It is a tough lake but it does have walleye, northern, bluegill, and a very rare muskie has been caught there. Good luck!
Looking for any information about lake Ellen. My family is going to be there next weekend and we have never been there. Looking to find anything about depths to fish as well as what need of fish are in the lake. Thanks for your help
Dose anyone have an ice report ?

Slow morning so far. Marked a couple, no takers in 14fow. Ice is crystal clear and solid. 13" at the launch and 16-18" everywhere we drilled. Seems that the weed bed that usually holds holds the fish is sparce this year.
