This warm weather has slowed down the ice growth.  Luckily in the areas guys have been fishing we had a couple extra inches to spare.  If you have been fishing areas with current just be aware that it may be thinner than the last time you were out.  The good news is colder weather is on the way which should firm up everything quickly.  There are plenty of fish out in the dredge lines anywhere between 10-15 feet, you just need to be on them when they turn on.  Mornings and afternoons have been best with midday being slower.  A few guys have been able to pull in nice fish around lunch time so it isn’t a lost cause.  The fishery here on the lake is really healthy this winter with all panfish species running large, and I am expecting this winter to be dynamite!  With my expanded tanks I am now carrying 3 sizes of shiners, two sizes of rosie reds, crappie, and walleye minnows.  My freshwater tanks keep them healthy and lively!  Stop in to get the latest news.
