It seems like we are really turning the corner into a “late ice” bite.  The perch bite in front of my shop is good, and guys are going East toward Marge’s Island and catching a nice mixed bag.  I have not heard about the airport lights, but the last few days there have been a lot of guys over there which usually indicates a good perch bite there.  The ice out on the lake is great, we are still around 14-16″ average.  The shorelines are bad, guys are still able to access off of the dock at the landing, but in the not to distant future that is going to go away.  I have talked to a few guys who are going out on the river.  Walleyes have been off and on depending on the day at both Dresbach and Trempealeau.   Good luck and stop in for the latest report!

Thanks,

Ice is still the main concern for most fisherman.  The shoreline really took a hit on Saturday, but the good news is that the cold temps last night really firmed things back up.  I saw a guy drive an ATV onto the ice from the landing this morning.  I don’t expect that to last long but it will still be accessible on foot for the near term.  Ice thickness overall seems to be around 16″ with the issue really being access like I said.  The snow has really thrown a wrench into things here on the lake.  Late last week the fishing was very good right in front of the shop with numbers and size being caught.  With the snow on the ice is has slowed down.  There have been some guys venturing out to Marge’s Island, and if you are willing to make the trek the fishing has been good over there.  I also have talked to a few guys who are catching some bluegills in Airport bay off fishermans road.  I would bet that the fish are biting in other parts of the lake but I have not been getting very many reports as it seems like most guys have quit for the year.  Now is the time to get out while we still have good ice and the fish start to get more active!  Stop in and get the latest ice and fishing report!

The ice continues to be the main topic for ice fisherman.  These warm days have definitely cost us some ice but not as much as you would think.  I would venture to say that we are still averaging 20″ of clear hard ice, and guys are still driving their trucks on as of this morning.  The landing is getting rough and without any cold nights coming up it may stop vehicles soon.  If you have a four wheeler or UTV the ramp off of my parking lot is in great shape, it hasn’t been exposed to all of the sand and salt that the landing does.  As far as fishing goes things are picking up.  The bluegills especially are getting active with limits being caught yesterday.  I still haven’t heard of big schools of perch by the lights but guys are catching some big ones to mix in with the bluegills over there.  The northern bite remains good with the east side of the lights producing the best fish.  The crappie bite is fair with some nice size but lacking in numbers.  Hopefully the cribs we built last Saturday help that out.  Late ice is here, get out and catch some slabs while you still can!

Thanks,
Chad
