Went out from 3-5:30 pm, marked a lot of fish but only caught 5. 3 perch and 2 gills. Fished in about 12 feet of water. Ice was sketchy but safe, there are like 2 layers formed, one from previous ice and one from the rain and snow we got.

Went out with a buddy for about 6 hours yesterday. Had to use a plank to get on the ice but once we were out there it was good. Caught a handful of gills. Not much for size. Landed a couple small bass on Tipups. Was hole hopping for awhile. Best luck was between 15-18 feet. Ice varied between 3-5”
There used to be a lot of pike, some told me that they dredged the lake though and now perhaps not. I can confirm that I personally have caught pike from that lake 18 years ago
Drove by last night (28DEC) just before dark. I live 10-15 min from here so I’d thought I’d see how much damage the rain did. I’ve never fished this lake. Saw 3 guys walking off. First few feet around shore was open water. Maybe go out mid morning with a plank and the spud and see if I can catch some dinner. Any tips would be helpful
is there pike in george? DNR claims there isn’t but I find that hard to believe

Fished from about 1:30-4:45 this afternoon. Ice was about 4-5 inches thick in the spots I measured. I caught and released 6 or 7 keeper sized bluegills and about a dozen other smaller gills. Pretty slow day; most activity was between 3:30-4:15 or so. I thought I would have marked more fish on the Vexilar than I actually did.
There were probably 15 other vehicles parked at the lake, which is the most I've ever seen at one time for this little lake (although, I tend to only fish this lake 1 or 2 times a year).
