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,

Chad
