I haven't see many actual reports on here lately so I thought I would put one out. I fished Swede yesterday afternoon with a co-worker who had never ice fished. Set up at 2 and fished til 5:30. We caught a nice mix of perch and gils, the perch were 8-10" and the gils were nice, most over 8". The fish were finicky, had to really tease them up off the bottom before they would tap lightly. Picked up 2 northern on tip-up's and smelt, but had a lot of flags. Had a great time and hooked a new guy on the sport. It was worth the trip to see his face when he pulled that little 3 pound pike thru that hole. Like the commercial says- Priceless!

Yup i went out again to try my luck durring the perch bite about 12:15-2:30 and my girlfriend pulled up a nice perch, one of 4 perch and then that was it. lots of traffic, and i was sitting in the middle of everyone so it wasnt great, house accross from us pulled in a couple of nice snot rockets and that was it that i could see, not too impressed, has really shut down since mid Dec. so i think im gonna start venturing around to find a little bigger lake.

Ouch, Watchdog, Pike Pickler, and I all went out yesterday morning 6am-noon and fished the North bay (bowl). The bite was tough, overall, we landed a couple of perch and couple of gills. We saw 4 pikes, 1 being of nice size on camera. But, all they did was look at out bait and move on. Interested to watch schools of about 15 gills come in and leave from time to time. The lake has definately seen the pressure. I think the only entertainment we had was when the DNR truck drove by a couple of time. He never stopped by though, I would have liked to interviewed him of where the bite is on at, because it certainly wasnt on at Sweed Grove. the Perch

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.

      While ice fishing on Caribou, I was gobsmacked that I could see my jig over thirty feet deep when peering down the hole.

      Snow is definitely going down things are looking up! B season should be really good saw 3 strutter Toms this afternoon comeing home from fishing. 
    • IceHawk
      My opinion no. Nest maybe but time will tell.

      Don I'm surprised as how much the river sections are opening up. Checked from the 71 bridge towards Cold Spring and there's actually a bunch of open sections. Noticed the honey hole area, in the rivers mouth entering cedar island is really going quick also. Definitely looking better for a possible ice out on the lakes on the chain. Time will tell
