Fish Deep- 40-60 FOW. 5pm-10pm Watch the Flasher to see where there at. Crappies and Walleyes have been anywhere from Bottom to 10 ft off the bottom, but it changes daily. Find some deep structure. Glow in the dark jigs with medium to small crappie minnows are best-- Don't even try fatheads or shiners waste of time and money. Was setting up 3 ft. off the bottom, with luck, until this past weekend, they were there but weren't biting.

need too add a length min. of 10" on some Wright co.lakes for the crappies,this special reg. has helped the fisheries on many lakes in the state,lets them grow up before they are harvested.

      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...
