FISHING REPORT

Ice Depth: 8"
Fished with my wife in front of six lakes yesterday 8 to 11. Caught 9 perch between the two of us and kept five nice ones caught on jamei plastics. Had tip ups out three flags caught a small bass and caught what i thought was a burbot, but later determined it was a dog fish at 24". Sure put up a fight though. One ugly ba$tard.

FISHING REPORT
12/24/14 4:42 PM CST
Ice Depth: 11" Conditions: Cloudy Air Temp: 31° - 35° F Water Temp: Below 40° F
Got on the ice at about 7am. Fished at gilligans. We punched holes all over the place. Focused around the bridge and fishing pier. Got the tip ups out and get a flag in about 10 minutes. Fish ran hard for about 20 feet than dropped it.

We jigged for panfish but to no avail. We did however get 3 walleye one largemouth and one northern. All walleye were under 15. northern was about 24 inches. bass was a little guy maybe 12 inches. The walleyes came on a slenderspoon (silver/green reflective sticker) Northern on a frosty tipped with minnow. bass on a gold tungsten with white BY Bait mayfly.

All fish caught at about 11 feet of water.

Merry christmas guys!!!!

Thanks guys. This has been hands down one of the strangest years i can remember weather wise. This was my earliest year on ice, My son and i fished northern prairie and menomin on opening day of deer hunting. Then I sat on ojaski with water up to my ankles with water literally gushing out of holes a couple weeks later. Then trucks on the ice and now people droppin through the sheet in stoddard, onalaska, fox and shacks going through on cedar and bemidji. strange stuff my friends.

Stay safe and ill report when i get home tomorrow. Nerry christmas and happy new year folks!!!

Cronk~ There were several folks running around the north end of Prairie with pick ups the last couple days. (not what I would do) but, they were doing it and saw no one having any problems. I think you would be good to go, bud. Pokegema shouldn't be that much different than Prairie. Go for it!

Hey folks just curious if the ice is still in good shape. I know there will most likely be some water on top but wanted to make sure its still safe.

Some guys were saying that ice down around the coulee region is being degraded pretty bad in some areas. Think ill head to pokegama in the morning unless you guys think shes gettin sketchy.

Thanks for any info you can provide.

Does anyone know if the Fireman's Ice Fishing contest is isolated to one area, or is it like the hydro-flights contest where you can fish anywhere on the chain and just bring your fish to a weigh in station? Thanks!!!

Wright6 I think your exactly right...I think its also from the early ice with no major cold fronts and what not

I agree it has been pretty good all day this year. Actually it has been good everywhere all day. I do believe it has a lot to do with the early ice and lack of snow on the ice. Also we have had steady temps. No major cold fronts like 25 degrees to -25 degrees.

Like you said the early morning and late afternoon/night bite is better but up until Saturday, every time iv been up there, there has been a decent afternoon bite...not one after another but enough of a bite to keep a guy interested...that changed this saturday I didn't get out till 8am or so and didn't have much of a bite all day and I left somewhere between 4-5 I was however a little lazy and didn't exactly move much that day so Idk if that would have helped or not but it was extremely slow for me for the first time this year

Hi Wright6 - generally speaking, I agree with everything you said. This year (so far)has been different for me. there has been a very good early afternoon bite. Not just the little ones. I caught the biggest perch I have ever caught last saturday mid-afternoon. It was right in the middle of the afternoon when I wasnt getting too many bites. Maybe its just the early ice, I dont usually get out much before Christmas but this year I have been out five or six times and done pretty well all afternoon (I dont usually go out in the morning). Good Luck!
