Same, Jimmy. Tried different size/colors spoons, jigs , minnows and waxies to no avail.... finally just trying a different lake.
All I have caught out there is dink perch jigging this year don't know what's going on vexy is full of them
Anyone having any luck here yet this winter? I’ve put in about 30-40 hrs in and have only landed a couple perch. Marked plenty of fish every time I’ve been out in anywhere between 15-30’ of water and all chasers and no takers...
Thank you Mac da gaff.
I live on a small lake just south of Long, we have 5-6" of strong ice over 90% of the lake.
That being said I can walk 50 ft to the side of my pier and go thru due to a spring that has the ice dangerously thin. No one can expect someone to give a truly accurate ice assessment with out knowing your area and checking it yourself.
Teach your son the right way to assure his safety by spudding your way to your spot, and drilling holes to confirm that you are on reasonably safe ice. Teach him how to use the ice picks to get out in case you do have a mishap, Someday he can pass that info onto someone else and keep the outdoors safe for the next generation.

Anyone have a depth on ice? Just checking as I’m bringing my son out and don’t wanna put him in danger. Thanks everyone in advance.
Any pointers for a newby on this lake? Not looking for any spots. More what type of bait and depths to fish for walleye, northern, or bass with tip ups. I‘ve figured out that golden shiners about a foot to a foot and a half off the bottom in six to eight feet of water is a dead sea already.
71° - 75° F
86° - 90° F
FYI...yes, the water is higher than I’ve ever seen. The boat landing dock was moved from the East side to the West side. Many features and shoreline is currently underwater.
Fished from 730pm till 930pm and witnessed a crazy mayfly hatch at dark. The water was alive and boiling. Only caught 3 small largies and 2 small pike.
Water temp was 75 and very dirty, compared to what it normally is. Lotta pollen on the water.
Boat landing was completely full and overflow parking on the road.
66° - 70° F
61° - 65° F
Water levels are record high Im told. Bring hip boots for boat landing. Tough bite with mayfly hatch. Couldnt find any active bass. One short northern, one 29 released.
This is a long shot, but my father in law lost his tackle box on 1/30 coming off the lake. Just checking to see if anyone would have found it.
