Anything happening? Looks like on the web cam they were still driving out today? Not many weekends left, need to find some good ice to waste a few hours on this weekend.

I drove out of Wahkon last weekend, and there was about 6'' of soft ice (that had refrozen but was still obviously not good ice) on top of probably 20'' of solid ice.  I didn't measure, so that's just a best guesstimate.  The shorelines were just  fine, too.  I accessed from the park right in town; the resort right next door was *not* allowing vehicle traffic, so I might've been dumb.   I don't know how much longer I'd give it, to be honest. With a wheeler, I'd feel more than safe.

We dropped about eight lines down, all with flags attached.  Fishing was slow for us, but the ones we caught were decent sized.

Does anyone know what they are fishing for out in front of Chapman's. Pannies, Perch, Pike? I see they are taking wheelers out

Can anyone give me any tips on fishing for crappies and perch  after ice out?  South side?  Tips?   Thanks...Jim

Focus your efforts around the pencil reeds, and on the first deep break out from them. Warmer, stable weather will push them shallow. Crappy weather can hold them out deeper. Please release the larger, really black male crappie.

Still not seeing many folks on the Web cam's during the day so there must not be much going on out there yet or it's just not going to happen again this late season?

Well save your time. Was out in Isle bay pretty much most of the day. Saw about 12-14 other guys come and go. I got nothing and the only fish I saw caught by everyone was one pike, one Walleye and one Sunni!  Didn't see one crappie caught! :(

Ice was 12" to 15" but going. Fished about 50 holes all over the bay, That may be it for my Ice fishing season.

Isle bay is a notthe best but does produce the biggest crappies normally. Most guys fish em to deep. I catch em sight fishing and I know they are being caught by some as my cousin been getting some in his shop to mount.

      Saturday fished by Dunvilla on lake haven't fished since Christmas. searched all over for them and after 3 augers searching in different directions for an hour we found them hugging a sunken island. landed a big large mouth and a ton of 4-6 inch gills. Crappies were almost impossible to find.    Sunday tried around our cabin. Buried ranger AGAIN. Got out found dry path drilled grid pattern and fish were not in it. Had to drill 60+ holes to find them in a 40x40 area in 33 feet of water. few 10-11.5 inch crappies with one 14" small tungsten with Ripper plastics were ticket again. Hopefully get out this weekend and actually fish during prime time for once lol.
