any walleye action ?
I'm coming up the week of Jan. 5th its been years since I've ice fished this lake. I used to fish it with my Dad and have some familiarity of the lake. If anyone wants to meet up during that week let me know.
Id like to fish the south bay by the bouy for pike, can anyone tell me the best access for the south end?
What general area did you fish? North or south? Any size to the fish?
Below 40° F
6° - 10° F
Crappie bite was crazy hot today until 730. Could have filled 3 people's bag limit by myself. Spent half my day trying to find walleye. Only kept 3 fish that didn't make it
Fished the 10th and 11th and had about 7 inches of ice all the way to where we fished with 2 inches of snow on top. 3 inches of solid ice and about 4 inches of slush that froze. Sleds were out but everyone else walked.
Thank you all for the update, will leave the 4 wheeler at home.
The local snowmobile club has not marked the lake yet. They will be going out on the weekend to determine ice thickness across the entire lake. An occasional sled will cross the lake to go to Musky Shores but that is few and far between.
Reports of 7-9" of ice in the north and south bay made up of mostly slush ice.
I put an aeration system in for a customer on the west shore and found 2-1/2 to 6" of ice with at best 1" of clear ice. The rest was predominantly slush ice. The latest cold snap did not seem to add any ice.
Praying for -20 a few nights and no more new snow so ice can be made.
Looking for a follow up report on the ice conditions. I fish on Clear Lake next door. coming up on Friday the 17th but won't bother if the ice is not safe for a snowmobile.
Ice is shitty. About 2-3 inches of crappy ice over a layer of water/slush with 2-3" of clear under all that. Broke through top layer with smaller 4 wheeler. On the packed down snowmobile trail towards island, was a little better. Stay safe.
