Winterkill??'s

1 post in this topic

I was wondering if someone could give me any info on winterkill? I have been fishing the lake by my house most of the winter, gills were pretty small but lots of them through early ice until mid january. Then i started picking up some nice 7-10"s up until about week and half ago, now i cant hardly raise a bite at all. Apparently the dnr did some oxygen samples and its really low, they are thinking about opening it to unlimited fishing just so all fish dont die due to freeze out. I was wondering if anyone might have ideas from experiance, where i might find some fish in this lake? Is there more oxygen in deeper water, or shallow water where the weeds are? Seems that where ever i drill a hole there are fish on the vex from 3-6FOW but cant get any takers. Im kinda lost. Thanks for any input!!

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.

      Correct.  You can throw him a buck or two to keep the road graded and all is good.  At least that's my understanding.
