Eagle River Area

While ice conditions remain good in the Eagle River area, some
shorelines are opening up. Anglers should stay away from current
areas, bridges, and docks. We may be breaking ice at the boat
landings at the fishing opener (Sat., May 3, 2008). Stay tuned. In
the meantime there’s some excellent ice fishing going on right now
in the Eagle River area. The bluegill bite in the Eagle River area
is excellent. Fish 15 feet of water or less, in and around the
remaining weeds. Use a small jig, tipped with a waxie or spike.
Crappie action continues to improve in the Eagle River area. Fish
25 feet of water or less, over structure, and concentrating on
break edges. The crappies are suspending anywhere on the water
column. Use a crappie minnow under a slip bobber, recognizing that
crappies only bite “up,” never “down.” The perch bite remains
inconsistent. Fish either deep mud flats (35 feet of water or less)
or around weeds in 15 feet of water or less. The perch are locating
in both areas. Use a crappie minnow, waxie, or wiggler.
