Ice depth report?
21° - 25° F
Fished for a few hours this afternoon. Only a few small bluegills and perch
31° - 35° F
Fished late morning to early afternoon. Caught a few small perch right away and then nothing for a few hours.
Can anyone tell me if there is ice and if so the depths or if anyone has ventured out? PM me or post here.
As I posted 2 days ago i only saw 1 person fishing the slips around 3 pm. If they were hammering the perch there would have been 50 people there! Somebody apparently blocked my post. Why?
Thanks for the honest reporting to those of you that have actually gave a real report. I was thinking about trying it at skippers for the first time. Not any longer. Its a little ridiculous when folks have nothing better to do than make up fish tales. Oh well mom pays the rent for these kids and they haven't yet experienced the real world. I understand
Below 40° F

This a two day report.
I was fooled by the first perch report and can say that there are a couple good perch in here and a lot of eater bluegills with a few little guys of other species.
Yesterday i was out dawn to dusk fishing with tip-downs and jigging in 3 fow. I caught a lot of 6-8 inch perch jigging and on the tip-downs with minnows and i caught 2 good perch that were 11.5" but went through almost 2 dozen minnows throughout the day for them. Bluegills were 4-8 inches with a lot of 7" that i threw back. I also caught a bonus bass on the tip down and a white bass.
Today i went out at 2pm and caught an 8" perch and a couple decents gills that were 7". I got another small white bass and a little crappie.
Overall i would say that this isn't a total perch spot i wouldn't say there arn't any perch in here worth catching but a full day and only 2 above 8" means you should look elsewhere for perch.
There's a public road that runs parallel with I-41. You have to drive behind the buildings that are tucked up close to Hwy 21. If you've ever driven past on 41 you'll see the vehicles parked in the lot. Hope that helps a little.
