Hit the ice with my 10 year old son yesterday 2-10-18. Ice was 8-9Ē little slushy on the way out and really slushy on the way in after the rain. The bite was a little slower than expected for this location but the fishing was a blast! My son nailed an 11Ē crappie on his first drop! I thought it was gonna be game on at that point but it turned out to be a slower pick. Caught a bunch of gills mostly small ended up catching around 20 crappie kept 8 between 9 1/2 & 11Ē also kept 2 gills and 1 bass. My son totally out fished me in fact he caught 7 of the 8 crappie we kept and the bass. I was pretty proud to be getting whooped on by my own son! All in all I couldnít have asked for a better day!

 Fish were caught in 9fow visibility was not even 12Ē it was super dirty. Majority of the fish came on gold #6 hook and minnow fishing 6ft deep. The rest came on a gold tungsten jig and maggots.

That sucks about your back! Especially with the nice long ice season weíre having! If you want to get out one day this coming week shoot me a message. My big stupid otter will fish 5 but itís usually just me so Iíve got plenty of room. Just bring a seat and your tackle. Only thing that really sucks is itís not the shack for run & gun fishing.

Iím game to get out somewhere Wednesday!  Iím gonna get out later today but Iíve got some stuff to take care of this morning.  I was out yesterday and itís for sure spudbar season! Most of the ice was 7Ē and perfect. But one area where I wanted to fish was a total no go Iím not sure how I got so close before I realized what I was dealing with if I wouldnít have ad my spud Iíd have been swimming! The ice in that area had and ugly look to it and was only 3Ē  Iíd say 1.5 of that wouldnít hold the weight of a mouse. Lucky i very cautiousy got out of that area. The fishing wasnít so hot where I ended up 1 crappie and some mostly small gills but I didnít have to worry about getting wet.

Today at PLX was sketchy and bite was off.  Hardly marked anything and what I did didnít want to eat.  Got 1 nice Crappie and 1 nice bass and a few small gills. Couldnít find much today. Going to try tomorrow morning and I think thatís going to be my last trip unless the forecast does a 180. Will post more details.
