Hows the fishing going here and across the road? Sunnies and Crappies?

We were on Lake George two weeks ago. We fished north and east of the access by the small cluster of houses. We fished for about 3 hours and caught 1 11" walleye. I was marking a few fish on the Vexilar but couldn't get anything to bite. I assumed the bite must have been slow at the time because it was a nice Sunday morning and their was no one around. We had fished at Portage Lake on Saturday, another nice day, again we were marking fish but couldn't get them to bite. I didn't see anybody catch anything that day. We should have worked harder on Lake George, but it was such a nice day we took it easy and enjoyed the surroundings.

Went up there on Saturday started at about 7:45 and fished until 4:00! it was a struggle all day long you had to keep moving with the school of fish! The fish that we did catch were nice fish! We had 4 guys at ended up with I think 27 or 28 nice fish caught alot of small crappies to small to keep (I mean really small. But Overall it was fun and it wasnt to windy til later in the day and by that time we had some spots down there to fish!

Hope to head up to the cabin this weekend. Does anyone know the ice conditions on George or any other area lakes? Are they driving or walking?

My brother lives about 40 miles south of Lake George and has been fishing and driving on the ice by his place this week and says he has 2&1/2 feet yet and the ice is good.

I remember talking to you. Did well open water as usual except in August when it turned into a cesspool full of bullheads. Fished it a few weeks ago and nada. Only lookers on the vex. I spent time this winter on another lake up there and did pretty well for perch and crappies, over new years and spring break.

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?

      Wow that ice went fast fished below the dam in Cold spring today. 3 feisty pike that was fun. Where the landing is there was about 20 feet of ice at the access. i was hoping to get the boat out but not yet. If anyone see's the ice go out by the landing let me know. Would like to get out however by Friday have heard any where from 1 inch to 20 so we will see.

        Do those 6" filet knifes work pretty good for pan fish?
