The ice keeps growing and fish reports are starting to come in.  The channel in front of the shop to the east to halfway creek is averaging around 4 inches.  There are still areas that are thinner so if you venture out take a spud.  As far as fishing goes the perch bite has been good, I have seen multiple over 13″ brought into the shop.  The crappies are being a bit elusive I think the bite will improve when the ice gets a bit thicker.  The bluegill bite has been strong with a lot of nice eaters being caught.  I haven’t seen very many real big ones yet but they will show up soon enough.  Haven’t had many guys go for northern yet but they are getting caught jigging so I suspect it will be a good year for them.  Stop in for the latest reports on ice and fish!
