Never fished here before but was thinking about it. Anyone have any tips? Feel free to message me if you rather do that. Appreciate any info!
Plenty of panfish around. Also saw 1 northern pike.
26° - 30° F
Fished 11am-3pm today in the first bay past the boat launch. Marked a lot of fish and caught a bunch of 4-6" gills, a few 4-6" perch and the FIL had a 13" small mouth as the highlight of the day. Beautiful day and a fun lake - everything went back in!
26° - 30° F
Ice is safe been here for about 3 hours and caught about 6 northerns
On Friday we got a bunch of gills and a few crappie
16° - 20° F
Fished for just over an hour today. I was a little skeptical to go out because of a "Thin Ice" warning sign at the boat launch but I was on 2 different lakes yesterday and there was plenty on those so I went out on foot, pulling a sled. I went straight out from the launch and to the left in the first bay. I drilled 3 holes, there was 7-8 inches of ice in each. I set up 2 tip ups with medium shiners on them and 1 hole for jigging. I only had 1 flag but the fish took the bait right away, only pulled out like 2 feet of line. I jigged a neon green jig with a wax worm, caught 5 very small bluegills (the 1 in the pic was the biggest) and somehow managed to land a 24 inch northern.
Took a quick 2 hour bass fishing trip July 6th and found only 2 bass. both of which were 10" long and FAT. Had 1 bonus 23" pike. There were plenty of small gills. that part seems to be back to normal. Lots to do with the gamefish population from what i seen. Can't wait for this lake to come back to what it was.
