Any of you guys bass fish that area near the dog park, looks like great top water frog fishing stuff but I can't imagine there's any depth, I drive by once in awhile but never have stopped to try. Any bass in that area?
Below 40° F
16° - 20° F
Was slow going today fished from 10 am till 2pm nothing for me, seen a few northerns taken on tip ups and one big bullhead
Anyone know the ice situation
31° - 35° F
Fished here Saturday morning. Didn't do too bad on the northern. Most were 20-24 inches long. Had one keeper, just barely. I was the only one jigging for panfish and I was catching one about every 5-10 minutes, but all were small. Bluegill, sunfish, crappie, and one largemouth were caught jigging. Saw a lot of flags going up, looked like a lot of misses though. I went 8 for 11 on the flags, definitely one of my better action days on tipups I've ever had fishing myself.
Ice was solid where I was yesterday morning. I didnt venture too far out towards the mouth, several guys were down there tho.
Fishing...... not so solid.
From the culvert, out about 100/150 yards looked sketchy still.
Just got back from spudding around. Parking lot end has 1-2", by the culvert was wide open. The other half, u can see a clear line of old ice meeting new ice. On the "old ice side" theres 3" or better everywhere I checked. Approx 10 fresh holes still open. 4 guys leaving the ice, and 3 others going on as I left.
Gonna fish it in the morning, I'm not confident to say the ice is safe on here. But it seemed safe enough for me to try it out, let's put it that way. Haha.
Noone out there this morning when I drove by at 7:30 but I did see those holes and assumed they were from yesterday. We don't have very good ice making weather from here on for at least the next week or two. Also all of the ice out there that is crystal clear just froze yesterday and there's a lot of it. The white colored ice was there before the snowfall, now we're supposed to get 1-2 more inches of snow tonight which would make those different layers of ice difficult to see. I know it's only 2 1/2 to 3 feet deep out here, but still you fall thru and it won't be easy getting out of the muck by yourself. Be careful out there!
