Indian Lake Update - 1/21/2019
« on: January 21, 2019, 05:07:31 PM »

All,

The lake looked a lot better today. This morning when I woke it was -14F so a fair amount of ice will have built overnight. Itís been in the single digits all day too.

Anyway, at Long Island first pull-off folks were fishing out on the main lake close to the island. At 3rd pull-off there were a couple of guys fishing on the right hand side as you look towards the bridge. I didnít see anyone at North Fork.

As ever, Iím letting you know what I saw. Conditions may change quickly and if you go out please use all safety precautions.

Thanks for the report. I'm hoping to come up and fish late Friday afternoon and most of the day on Saturday if the rain doesn't hurt the ice too much.

Fished the first turn off today about 1 pm. Good 5 inches of ice. Got a few bluegill and perch, no keepers. Saw people fishing near northfork.

Fished several areas of indian today. The majority of the ice is 5 to 6 inches but the top couple is crap.  Cloudy and just basically frozen slush. Theres also some really sketchy areas. Anywhere the snow sat seems to be the worst. Saw 1 spot that the spud went through on 1 hit with 6 inch ice 10 ft away. Another area looked like it just had a thin layer of snow on top but was actually at least 3 inches of slush and water sitting on top of the ice. Had ice underneath it but...Other areas were open water as of sun and have now frozen over but I have no idea what the thickness is. Didn't get anywhere close to it. Anyway as of now it's fishable as long as you are cautious and USE YOUR SPUD!  Not sure what this rain will do to it but with more cold coming we should be in good shape after a few more days.
Fishing was pretty slow most of the day. Only had a couple keeper crappie and some small gills and saugeye to show for several hours on the ice. Found a good school of crappie late this afternoon and ended up with a limit but it took a lot of searching.
Anyway I expect the ice to take a beating, especially in current areas,  but I plan on being out fri or sun. I'll post conditions when I get back out.
