Fished today from 7am to 4pm. Fishing was slow, had to work hard for them. Would show up in spurts. Catch 1 or 2 then nothing for a few hours. Bite was really light. All fish on slider. Ended with 5 on ice and lost a couple coming up. Sat outside all day. Weather was nice. Good luck to you all this coming week.

Fished yesterday 10-dark. Had a few whitefish come thru early in 20ft. Finally had a few more marks right before dark. Ended up catching a 10 inch walleye. Ice was 8-10. Some four wheelers and snowmobiles out
Any ice updates for the landing and possibly out to the reef?
Below 40° F
11° - 15° F
Made it out to the reef this afternoon, checking the ice and fishing along the way. Travel was okay until you had to cross one of many pressure cracks. Ice depth varied in such areas greatly. One area was soft and had only 3 inches of ice about 200 yds from the launch. The further you went out from shore the worse the pack ice under and above the ice was. Drilled several holes along the reef and it was near impossible to drill a clean hole. Fishing was extremely slow. As I walked back at night the ice was shifting and grumbling at the pressure cracks and water was pushing up at the launch making it soft and wet near the shoreline.
I was at the landing a few hours ago. No one was on the ice. There was, however, a set of tracks from the landing out forty yards or so onto the ice and back. I did not check ice conditions.
If you go down one post there is a picture from 2 days ago
Has anyone been fishing by Volks launch ? I would like to know the ice conditions before I drive there this weekend.
What it looks like as of 1/12
Can you put a boat in?
