Got the house out on friday. 21 feet of water on a mud/rock transition. Half the house is over rock, half over mud. Fished from 2pm fri through 11 am saturday. Caught one 15 inch eye at 3:45, one 26 incher at 11pm, and one 24 incher at 8 am. Also got a 9 inch perch. Had the camera down for half an hour between 330 to 4 and saw around 7 walleyes in that time. Big blips moved through all night and day, some suspended 2-7 feet off the bottom but no takers. Im guessing about 40 walleyes moved under the house and we could only get three to bite. caught the 24 incher suspended 4 feet off the bottom.

      there is a mess being created out there ladies and gentleman. Be careful. Slush is sneaky. It looks like March out on the ice, not January. Deep slush and standing water, tricky conditions for vehicles and people. Saw a lot of flooded houses today in four mile bay.    Fishing for our group was the same as it's been all season. So Slow It Hurts.   But it sure was fun to be able to fish outside.    On a side note, I picked up nearly a dozen boards left behind from wheelhouses. With all this water and slushy conditions, I agree boards are needed. Just please take them with you or chisel them out. These things can cause a lot of damage to some expensive equipment come open water....

      I feel like every time I ice fish in the rain the fish are going nuts...Went out today on a lake in the Duluth area and just pounded the crappies and gills(100+fish)..All the gills were 8-9" and the crappies were 10-12"... Best bait was a glow majum jig with a glow plastic...
