A buddy and I fished today. got out there around 9 a.m. the crappie bite was tough due to the low pressure im sure. we had a hard time marking fish but when we did, they seemed to be hungry. We ended up with 15 crappies and a nice jumbo perch as well as a couple small walleye and a northern.
Ice was in ok shape, about 3" the first 20' from shore then it was good the rest of the way. If you go out, just use caution and even though we seen a snowmobile out there, I wouldn't advise it.
People who fish for food, and sport be damned, are called pot-fishermen. The more expert ones are called crack pot-fishermen. All other fishermen are called crackpot fishermen. This is confusing. ~ Ed Zern, 1947
