Sorry for the late report guys. Death in family, sick dad, and baseball has me running.

Before the rain on Saturday, ice was 5 inches on wind sheltered bodies of water. There were areas of bad ice, so spudding and drilling holes were absolutely necessary. After the rains, shorelines opened up as well as those areas of bad ice. Hard water fishing out south is officially over. Unfortunately, it seemed like it never really started. On to fishing. Bluegills were very good on small spoons tipped with multiple spikes. Focus on areas of remaining thick green weeds for the most active fish.

Shout out to WJS. Thanks for the jigging spoons Bill. Gills loved them!

Location: Not quite over the hill, but has a breathtaking view from the lofty perch.

Glad you got to fish the prototype at least once. No crappie on them?

Crazy how fast this ice went on the southern end of Cook.

Nice report, Husker.

The body of water I was on doesn’t have a big crappie population. Next season I’ll let them tear it up at Shab.
