Doodaa,

Welcome to FM. We're glad to have you.

I wish I could give you a recent report. But, honestly, no on in my clan of fishing buddies has fished it for several years. My last time out there was 10+ years ago and it was dink panfish galore.

Like Ray said, I have not been out there in some time now, but at one point I was hitting this lake 2-3 times during winter ice. My ice fishing crew and I know this lake for the winter of 96 death march. We where out and it started snowing very hard. The fishing was great and kept us out longer than normal, but the walk to the launch was a disaster. One buddy had to leave portable out on lake and go back next day. I took like two hours to get to landing (1' ½’ of fresh powder in 7-8 hours of fishing). At first we could not find lauch in black/white out conditions (before GPS). We did not get home until day light break (after digging out cars and trucks at launch). Just getting home was another task. Its know as the death march grin.gif, one of those things you will never forget.

Hope you read it good, because I only leave info like that on for a short time. grin.gif

Find deeper water if things are not biting. Start shallow and work out into the depths.

Its a long walk, but if you do it right, its worth the walk.

I have not fished Bone in awhile now, because of my knowledge of other lakes in the area. We always talk about Bone and I help out anyone who wants to make the walk.

Good luck!

      I think with the current forecast there will be ice fishermen/women on URL by the 20th. It'll be bitterly cold, which is excellent, but the snow puts a hamper on things...

      all good advice, but with first ice I will avoid going out in the dark until the ice is a thicker. Ice is never safe, play it smart. looking forward to getting out soon

      I also use braid for my decoys and suckers  I think I even have a steel leader on one of them and never had problem with them spooking,  I built a wood floor for my but and use PVC poles to hand my decoys, GoPro, spinner etc works great and can slide them out of the way when not in use.
