Should be excellent fishing lately if the wind dies down. Used to be good during deer hunting and before west Union froze up. I think my hands are still cold frown.giffrom years ago when it was 5 above and in the boat on west Union grin.gif

Fish, Looks like you are the only one around here that can withstand those cold temps. You sure did haul in some huge eyes. How large was the biggest you caught?

Well being I called you and filled you in on the info I won’t say much here. The biggest was 10.5 lb caught by Paul V.

I did purchase the Skiple <spelling>spear yesterday. Don’t know if I should keep it or sell it tho. Looks like brand new and he purchased it new from the brothers.

Good luck up north if you guys go.

Any of you guys been out on any of the lakes around Ersking yet? My dad has been out on Little Sarah spearing and he said the water is pretty cloudy he is hoping to hit the lakes soon for some panfish/walleye action. It sounds like the snow is really going to mess up the ice though. How bad is the flooding?

I was out and checked the ice depth on the west side, only found about 3 - 4 inches with about 5 or more inches of snow on top. It didn't flood when I cut the hole but you can be sure there will be some flooding going on.

I would imagine other areas have more ice, west side just froze over Tues. other areas have been froze for longer.

Saw 3 houses out on the west side and a little bit of flooding at the access.

I hope people play it safe for a while, first look and you would think it was Febuary out there with all the snow but with only a few inches of ice, we need COLD weather for sure now.

      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir
    • monstermoose78
      It’s still a blast to fish
    • Alex wilhelmi
      thank you tom sawyer good to know,

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys

      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.

      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
