Went out xmas day from 2 till 7pm. Lite snow and warm.The Perch were active but small. After 5 the wallys moved in and we caught 7 and kept 4. All about 15" to 16". After dark it seams to shut down. At least were I was. Has anyone had luck after dark?

I'm new to the area and am thinking of trying this lake this afternoon. What were you using? Where would be a good spot to start? I'll post later and let you guys know how I did.

I was out there the afternoon of Christmas eve. I didn't even see any fish on the AquaVu until I got outside the pondweed edge. I would target the 12-15 foot range.

I only picked up one perch, but I had both kids with me and there was not much room in the portable. There are fish down there once you get deep enough.

good luck!

Decided to give ice fishing a try Scotty?

Ah, well. My son wanted to go out pretty bad, otherwise I would have stayed home.

Let's just say that it was more like a workout than fishing since I don't have a sled or 4-wheeler, and it's a LONG walk to where I wanted to fish. I had about 400 pounds of gear I had to pull through the 8"-10" of snow on the lake. I am still sore today. laugh.gif I don't see getting back out until I can take my truck out there.

I was out there on 12/26 and saw a full sized pick-up out there. I was just leaving, but looked like he drove from the landing to the north side of the island. He kept close to shore, so I think he was pretty safe, but I just shook my head and left. There was a good 10" of ice where I was, but as soon as you get north of that island I know it fades out. Just hope all was well. You won't see me out that early....

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
