Just getting ready for the tip up town trip was wondering if anyone fished it this weekend and how you did + ice conditions I fished Saturday on a thumb lake wow the little buggers were not bitting anything. :fish:
Was up there Thursday-Sunday, ice was 10-12 inches everywhere we checked. Fished on the south shore weed bed by lyman's shanties and about a mile out from there in about 8-9 feet of water. Ended up with about 15-20 pike. The biggest around 24-25 inches. 1 perch and 1 rock bass. Was hoping to run into some walleye but that was not the case.Most fish taken on tip-ups with golden shiners. While I would not take the risk, there were full size trucks running all over the ice this past weekend. Goodluck
I appriciate all the good adivse if I dont catch any fish now I may need to take up a new hobbie. Definately going to have a good time no matter what, but a mess of nice fish would be the icing on the cake. good luck See ya there.
Thanks J! I'm telling ya, this Navionics app rocks! We drove in the dark to within spitting distance of your marks from Wed. I'm still shocked we didn't get a pike, but certainly not complaining! I'll b bringing up those terrific Bay City blue minnows! Looking forward to Saturday n Sunday!
