January 6, 2011

After quite a New Year's weekend, the ice is getting straightened out. We had several cracks when we went from 36 and 1-2 inches of rain to below zero in a couple of days. We moved the main road and bridged the worst of the cracks and this week of cold temps have done wonders to heal the ice.

The cold weather slowed the fishing for a few days, but it seems to be picking up again. We saw several nice catches of perch in the last two days and heard of nice walleyes taken also. The deeper perch bite is improving, although they continue to pick some up in shallower areas as well. I think we will see some fishermen leaving the reef areas and start moving deeper along Perch Parkway and south of the reef along either Walleye Drive or Lake St..

Walleyes continue to like shiners and red hooks are still working. Perch have taken fatheads one day and only wanted wax worms or euralarva the next. Be prepared to offer them a bait buffet and let them show you what they want. The mornings have been better for perch. Walleyes still prefer the low light times.
