We got a few small bluegills on Wall Lake a few weeks ago.

There was pretty good action, but mostly smaller fish.

Just went out on Loon today - eye's were biting decently early in the morning at the south end of the lake in 16-19 feet. Bass and sunnies pilfered my Gulp! all afternoon.

Just watch the public landing at Loon....I had someone #&(*^@!!! with my trailer today. Nothing that $20 won't fix, but still.

Wx Nut -

I'm going to be fishing Loon for the first time this year in mid Sept. when you say the south end, were you in the deepest lobe of the lake? Shoot me an email if you can - would like to ask a few questions.

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later

      Lets say you have 1.5 ah batteries now and you drilled one and a half holes per battery. Unless that ice was 50' thick, have dull blades and your auger is 8, or bigger that's not a drill you want to put more money into.  So give us some info on your auger and how many in lbs of torque is your drill?
