We are starting to see the ice fishing pick up after the past couple weeks being a little slow. Walleye and northern pike fishing has been decent especially in the morning and evenings. We are hearing lots of reports of people marking fish, but struggling to get them to bite. After a couple weeks of clouds and fog, hopefully the sunshine helps pick up the bite.
We are now seeing ice thicknesses around 18 inches in Creel Bay and more in most other parts of the lake.
Tip up fishing for northern pike has been most successful using sardines or smelt, while walleye and perch have been most active on Buckshot and Forage Minnows tipped with a minnow head or wax worms.
