Late afternoon excursion to Mead off south boat landing. Fellow leaving as I got there...reported about 30 inches of ice....I hoped not my Lazer hand auger Fuel drill setup would be not reaching water....my cross country ski pole with ruler marked above basket showed 22-24 " in holes I drilled....worried for a while. Parking lot not recently plowed, landing pretty rough, some people out driving around. Not as many fishing in this area as I thought would be. 12 feet water fish on bottom, mostly small crappies, one nice bluegill, all still swimming. White Flirty girty/ waxworm seemed best of what I tried. Nice to be out there, only fished 2 hours. No garbage anywhere I went, thank you fellow fishermen!! Ice cleats and ski pole really helped walking...Woody Eckes

Where can I purchase raffle tickets for Mead Lake ice fishing contest?
attempting to make it up fishing, and wondering if the lake has produced much? Guess not a lot of posts on Lake Links, but I know we all follow the reports. Appreciate someone responding.
Mead lake fishing contest Feb 5th 9am to 3pm
Me and a buddy were looking to get out Feb 5th. Looking to rent someone's permanent shack if possible. We are into crappie, walleye, perch. Would even be cool to toss out some tip ups for muskie as well. Please PM me if you have something available. Thx
Wondering if Mead has a Fisheree this ice season?
Fished a couple different evenings here over the last couple weeks. The fishing is on and off depending on the conditions. Definitely doing better with smaller baits like jigs and plastics or a spike instead of spoons Tipdown bite is slow but steady Several full size pickups out there yesterday
ANY FISHEREE ON MEAD LAKE THIS YEAR.?
Just contacted my fishing guide "GREG", new resident on the lake who is trying to get me up and teach him how to stay warm when ice fishing. Hope to report a fish catch on our next post. Heard his wife Sue is a excellent fish fryer?
