Is the Ice Ready for Fishing:

East Bay near Harveys Marina 
The ice is rumored to be 4" up to 8" (in some areas). We have had some good lows overnight but the highs are unseasonably warm for this time of year.

The DNR is advocating the use of caution when on the ice as there are still many thin spots that will not support any weight.

Best Bet:
For now is the East Bay near Harvey's Marina at the edge of the shelf. Although I haven't heard if anything is biting.

Best Bait:
Most successful during the cold water months is minnows and wax worms.

Best Fish:
Northern Pike seem to be active in the winter along with Yellow Perch and Walleye

Notes: Ice shanties for rent have not been placed on the lake yet due to thin ice. Use extra caution on the ice.

Stay Safe and Good Luck,

Ken S
