Ice fishing is in full swing throughout the area, with 7 to 10
inches of ice on average, but this thickness is increasing quickly
with below-zero temperatures in recent days. There are a few trucks
being driven out on the shallow, smaller lakes, but it is extremely
early yet and the only vehicular traffic we are seeing is
snowmobiles and ATVs. Bluegills and crappies are being caught over
the tops of weeds near deep water, and on the weedlines. The
walleye bite has been good, with some scattered pockets of good
action. Walleyes are relatively shallow yet and can be caught on
rock bars and points in 6 to 15 feet of water.
