Nothing but bass in the area we tried today. Three biggest were 19, and pair of 20 inchers. Left them all in the lake.

Had 2 hours to hit the lake late this afternoon. Caught 12, 7 worth keeping. Had to go smaller with my jig to coax the bite. The density of fish in this lake is impressive. Lot of fun with a camera. Easily had 40 gills on the screen at a time, saw a number of Bass and a couple of Pike. Humbling to see that many fish and get no bites.
21° - 25° F
Was out on Marshmiller yesterday afternoon with the family. Lots of trucks out on the ice. Even saw a few Ice Castles out there. Very light bite and what we caught was too small to keep. Fishing for bluegills. Caught a mixed bag of bluegills and perch. Marked fish all day on the Vexilar, and saw them on my underwater camera. The fish on camera were very small too. It's a good lake to take kids to for action.
Anyone have any luck on tip ups for pike out here?
Looking to head up this coming weekend. Are they driving on yet? Thanks
Fished late Saturday afternoon. About 5 inches of good ice. Went out on the lake to 10 foot depth. Marked a lot of fish on the flasher. Very light bite but caught a mix of perch, crappie, and bluegill. Perch and crappie were very small, about half of the bluegill were nice keeper size.

Size structure in this lake has gone to complete garbage. Caught a big Bullhead on a tip up, and a tiny perch that was barely bigger than a minnow. Saw lots on the sonar but they were barely bigger than our bait. Not like it used to be 4 years ago.
Went out for an hour or so yesterday. About 8 inches of snow, and another 2 inches of slush on top of the ice. Average of 3-4” of ice. Ice thickness wasn’t very consistent. I’d use extreme caution going out until we get past the heat wave this week and get back down to freezing temps. Had one flag, but it was on the only tip up that didn’t have a wire leader and cut the line.
Thanks for the reports. I might try to get down there tomorrow or Sunday to check it out. Will post any info I have.
I called Birch point on Monday, they said that people were fishing but this last warm up messed the ice up.
