Between Areneson's and Ballard's between Jan 11-13th....we dont care about the nightlife we care about the fishing....where will we more likely to have better luck? the mud flats or the structure off areneson's?

I'd pick structure. (bottom structure... lol...)

That's my opinion.

when you say between arnesons & ballards, do you mean a location between the two areas or do you mean pick one or the other?

Mid Jan, twin islands comes to mind.

Well, if you figure that out, let me know. smile.gif

It's fishin man, we can all only speculate but to me that seems a little early for hitting "off shore structure" as in reefs.... but, it's fishin.

guess I'd still want to say twin islands (east side) if I was going to try to make a logical guess.

Early for reefs? Never too early, unless you break through.

Arnesen's....there you will have the choice of fishing a reef,reef edge, or deeper flat all within a short distance, and can move between them to find some active fish without spending a lot of time travelling from one to the other.

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
