Bloomington/Normal area ice fishing
« on: Aug 28, 2023, 12:09 PM »
New transplant from for college. What's the ice fishing scene like down here. Is there usually ice every year or is it hit or miss? Read about Lake Evergreen mostly and saw there's some walleye and musky to be caught.
What can I expect to catch down here in an average winter? And how long does the season last?

I did really good a couple years ago at Evergreen. Mostly crappie and white bass. Only caught a couple saugeyes. The problem you are going to have in our area is if we get enough ice. Last year was bad only a couple days of good ice, the year before was really good, I fished 30 days on the ice.
