stopped by resthaven on way back from cataba state park ,resthaven looks to be unfished in a long time ,road to pond 8 has not been plowed at all and deep snow covers the whole pond ,other roads in to other ponds have deep snow and with out 4 wheel drive did not want to venture very far,looks like no one has even tried to fish in the past 3 weeks

helloo, don't know who the guys were who drilled my holes do to me not sharping my hand augers but thanks. ahhh youth huh! can a smaller snowthrower be used on resthaven? maybe a light model? would running a couple of paths to my shanty kinda lead fish towards hole? seems the fish follow the light so to speak. just musing I guess.

fished resthaven yesterday noon till 5 or so. drilled many holes,thanks to fellow member lima area who sold me great stingray, all in 9 ft water or so. used minnows and large maggots to no avail. tight lipped fish. tried brush cover,dock area, mid lake and near shore. different rigs to. roadways poorly plowed and quite a lot of snow on lake surface. others joined me after they were skunked out at east harbor. gear I btg from fellow members all worked as stated by same. thanks!

skipped resthaven today and tried beaver creek res south of green springs, total bust. others were there and we swapped ideas and still got zilch. worms n maggots and lures. 2 shantys, I seed box, brrrr and a family sitting on buckets in open. one tiny perch and few nibs. very thick snowcover and very deep ice depth, drilled multiple holes at varying depths. guy next to me had flasher and showed em but zilch

hit  resthaven pond 8 this morning ,and got nothing had camera going and saw nothing moving ,drilled alot of holes and moved alot to find fish ,but not even a good bite . went to white landing and boys said no fish out of 20 shanty's .went to east harbor but checked mazurky first no one fishing from there to islands ,at east harbor very slow and no reports of fish ,wind gusting  and tough to keep holes from freezing

Thanks for the reports guys. Seems like everything is slow inland. I like beaver creek but it has sucked this year. I heard east harbor is picking up a little. Good luck out there!
