Fished from 3 this afternoon till dark. Fish were stacked on the locator almost the whole time. Not many keepers but lots of action, great place to take kids fishing

Fished Sunday afternoon until dark. The perch came in every 5-10 minutes in large schools. Most were on the small side but full of eggs. Action slowed down as the evening went. A group of 3 of us landed about 60 perch, 20 crappie, a couple gills, and 2 bullhead. Not many were in the eater size range but lots of action. Yellow jig with a plain spike worked well for perch, crappie liked a red spike later in the evening. I had to up the size of my jig to filter out the tiny perch. A fun afternoon and amazing weather. Lake surface has about 2 inches of crusty snow, easy to get anywhere with a truck

My friend and I used tip ups with bigger minnows and crappie minnows on jig poles. Nothing on the tip ups, small crappies and blue gills on jig poles. We fished East of the island out from the Lured In Resort. On ice from 8 am to 5 pm.

We were out on Sunday. Sloppy. No vehicles are out on potato at all as far as we could see. The main wheeler/snowmobile trails are frozen and good to travel. Anything off in the snow is slush/water underneath.

Fished what I would call little potato yesterday 1/27. Sloppy travel some was froze which wasn’t to bad to walk on but other areas had 6” of slush and water. Fished 20 fow with a purple lethal Cecil, and had a great day hammering the gills and about 4 crappies. Not many others out and if this lake is any indication of other lakes in the area driving on will be a challenge

Was there today.   Plenty of hard ice.  A little snow but easy walking.  Fishing was good.  Typical potato lake sizes
