Was out today from 4-7pm and never had a bite. Ice was good on the wisc. side, 12" and a few full size trucks running along the shorline. HTB

Just out of curiosity- do you guys always fish the deeper holes out there? I haven't fished it for some time now, probably 8 years, but I used to fish the hell out of it. I noticed that when nothing was going on out in the deep stuff, I would do pretty good shallower. Maybe not so much the crappies, but walleye, sauger, and smallies and an occasional northern. I would just work some of the spots I would find them in during the summer, and these are spots that usually nobody hits, typically "drive by" spots. I don't know if a guy is able to get to where the pylons are north of the power plant, but sometimes, those backwater areas around there can produce. I sure miss fishing that whole area.

I usually fish deep like in 40 ft or deeper. This year does suck and the ice is just starting to get thicker so there are not a lot of brave souls driving everythere yet. grin.gif

Was out there this morning with only a few small crappies, nothing to brag about. Slow and boring

TRZ, long time,no see. I have to agree with you.I think it was three winters ago when we would fish down there in different places and do pretty well.The year after that I gave up after a few trips and the same with the next year.It was nice and close and if the fishing was good,so much the better.But now I don't hesitate to drive a ways to put some fish on the ice.Keep posting.

TRZ, yeah I'm still here dude.Just don't hit the river anymore.I'm sure it still has it's days,but it's nothing like it was a few years back.I even gave it a shot this year twice,earlier in the year.But those two trips bagged me one 10" crappie.I don't know what happened down there.By coincidence,we bought a cabin NE of Siren,WI. in the fall of 2004.I've been fishing the lakes up there now.Also Big Round Lake,north of Amery.Say "Hi" to Chris for me.Talk to you later.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      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.
