Quick report from todays outing.

On the ice(which is at 5 ")from 12:30-4:30 today. We were the first ones out on the ice there because there was no others holes cut anywhere. We fished about 50 feet straight out from the point. We were in 13' of water and visibilty was at least three feet. The Vex showed almost everything at about 11-12 feet. We used waxies on Marmooska, spring bobbers with a tear drop and and Ice Buster bobbers with a Genz grub and waxies. Waxies all day long. Total fish--- 42 sunnies 2 crappies and 2 bass. Biggest fish of the day was a nine and quarter inch crappie. Three guys in a 4600 Clam, pretty crowded. Great to be back!!!

Hi all,

been away for awhile as have been trying to invite some venison "home for dinner". One more outing to IA for old-timey blackpowder hunt but cold snap has me interested in some hardwater solitude.

Dan, which pit are you fishing? nearest Mayo parking lot? If not, I remember CT talking about the 2nd pit being preferable to fish. So would appreciate knowing the best way in there. I have Mayo parking priveledges, so park at the lot and pull across the west end of the S. pit to the next pit? Is there areas to watch out for? (seem to remember CT mentioning springs somewhere)

Thanks in advance for the info

Hi Tom,

We came in from the north east corner. Come in from the bottom of seventh street. There is a poured rock ramp down there. Easy access. Man I think Mayo One must of took off and landed at least ten times today.

Stillhunter,

It's the pit farthest to the north. Although if you have Mayo parking priviledge you can still get out from there. Depending on where you come in at you should go along the edge of one across the south one. There is a feeder creek that dumps into it by that area.

Look for the finger or penninsula there can't miss it.

Thanks Dan,

Have always fished the south one, since was unsure if the other was legal. have had enough excitement to keep going back although it seems as if some of the fish were a bit stunted

      I'm wondering the same thing!  Low temps have been dropping below freezing and in shallow water that temp has to drop multiple degrees in a night.  I'm wondering if they went back to the breaks and are waiting again?

      Public water is the Surface of the Water, not the land beneath it.  So even if you can access the river through an easement the actual land that youre standing on could be private property. Everything on the DNR Website says "Surface of Water" in the trespassing section.  I agree this is unfortunate,  but as usual, the 3 drunk morons that don't care ruin it for the 1000 that do..... standard procedure these days.  1 idiot doesn't clean his boat, and wrecks a lake for thousands of people.
