Ice / fishing report

3 posts in this topic

We spent Saturday looking for some crappies on some area lakes. We tried a few lakes about 1000 acres in size and mid 2o foot maximum depths. We found 4-6" of good ice and lots of hungry perch but no paper mouths. We were going to check again Sunday to see what impact the snow had on the ice but decided to head out and take care of snow removal at home.

I was thinking about keeping some of the perch but I was in a crappie state of mind. Now I wish I had kept a couple because the fresh fish sounds good.

I'm with you. I'm staying home for a while until the lakes dry out and freeze up. Slush will ruin a fishing trip in a big hurry.
