The fishing has been so/so. They are getting a few walleyes and the occasional flurry of crappie activity. No real hot bite going on yet.

There are still some areas of open water that have been moving aroung due to the wind and shifting ice.

Two pickups went down in the last week. One near Boyds landing and one over by Engebretsons(sp).

the state park landing doesn't seem to get used much. I myself haven't heard of anybody using that landing so far.

There are a couple of houses in that area. Everybody seems to be scattered this year probably because of iffy ice.

WALLEYEDUDE2001

As far as the south end, a couple of vehicles were out last week end but they drove out of the pit. The access at the old state park is inacessible (big heave right in front) which was open as recently as a week & a half ago. Fishing was tough last weekend with the cold & wind. Did I mention the wind. Up by the hunting shack (Wally's) by Milan Beach, three guys on Sunday were trying to pull a couple of houses off with cables. Seems someone was walking by one of the houses & went in up to the armpits. The lake opened up by Milan beach to the south big time from the wind. I'm sure is got some ice now. Use caution.

There are more & more houses going in by the "clay banks" & north of Janes out in the middle but again ice varies.

The north end was decent a week ago but they have scattered. The full moon coming up may chane the fising luck but the cold is also supposed to set in so we'll see. Am heading out that way today (wed.) to fish the weekend.

Good luck.

Fished it hard this weekend and not a whole lot to show from it.. Couple eyes and a few perch, I'd never complain about sitting in a house out on LQP though! I love it out there!

I fish the puddle 5 -7 times a week. Once the extreme cold has set in the crappie bite has been real scattered. If you do a little work you should be able to get on top of a hard hittin school. Best advice I could give would be to setup in the house cities. Either a little shallower or deeper then every body else is where i've had the best luck.

I've been catching walleyes real shallow in several different areas of the lake. The action is fast and furious if you can find a shallow spot where they are feeding on bait that doesn't have fins or gills. Seek and ye shall find.

      Arrowed my first in the fall of 1968, just a few days ago it seems. Last year did not go. This year not going. I could write a book with memories from archery and rifle and slug.   Withdrawals are bad but been slug hunting with son in laws family for 3 years now.  That is helping the addiction big time.  I wish you all, whatever kind of kill that deer method you prefer,  a nice smelly gut pile.  
    • eyeguy 54
      Hows the action. Got out a couple times and it was fun. 
    • eyeguy 54
      congrats on the PB ! great time of the year. great pic!
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Thinking of trying a few spots like this tomorrow. I’ve covered the whole lake so hopefully that works. I know once I find em I’ll hammer them 
    • eyeguy 54
      I have good luck on a couple spots with steep drop offs and weeds close to the drop. I anchor shallow and cast out to the drop.

      There were a PILE of big fish caught out there today, but yeah, that wind was still pretty tough despite the warmer temps.  My boy caught a 28 1/2 and a 29!  He bested his best on the same day!
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Awesome! Sounds like fun. Staying on a lake I’ve fished a fair amount last few years and struggling. Can’t get nothing to go. Fished from 4-16 ft. Been reading some articles to use electronics to mark fish in deep water (20-30fow) so maybe I’ll give that a try tomorrow. Tried trolling for pike to and again nothing. Also tried bass fishing and yep your right nothing. Man I’m really struggling but I’ve never fished this late in the season so that doesn’t help. But I don’t think I’m the only one struggling quite a few anglers out and didn’t see any fish caught.

      Hi my name is Royce. I was a live bait addict for many years and just could not kick the habit. Every day I would have to stop at the bait store to get my fix and every night I would come home with minnow and wax worm juice all over my fingers and a lot of fish to eat and let a lot go that were YUUUUGGGGGGGe 😝😜🙃
    • eyeguy 54
      I was on the windy side of a small lake for the action. hit 3 spots calmer and the 4th paid off. my money spot was a snooze. LOL anchored in 10 to 12 feet and bobbered down 4 feet above the weeds.  1 inch gulp alive minnows in emerald and chartreuse on a 4mm widowmaker ice jig again. the bigger ones were biting crazy light. any small change in bobber action and set the hook for the nicer fish. Smaller ones smacked it. gills and crappies acting the same and in the same area give or take a few feet. Pinched off a weight from a different bobber and put on the comal ( I am really liking these). Just the yellow stayed above the water and easy to see the nibble. Had a boat next to me with round bobbers and they struggled bigtime.
