1/10/2022 report
« on: Jan 10, 2022, 02:37 PM »
After a lousy first 4 days on the ice on a couple Iroquois County ponds, I managed to put together a decent outing today. Thursday and Friday were both skunks, a couple gills and a baby bass Saturday, and 2 baby bass yesterday.

Went out from about 9am-1pm today and landed 13 gills, a small crappie, and an itty bitty bass. No size to write home about, but it was a nice turnaround after 4 days of lousy bite. Ice is still really variable, ranged from 1.5 up to 6" on the pond I was on today.

Thanks. I had been seeing fish, they were just dead negative. I couldn't get them to touch anything. Yesterday they decided it was time to eat.

I'm hoping to get back out maybe Friday, definitely over the weekend.

The last few days have been ridiculously warm here, so I'm sure all the pond edges are mushy or shot. It was 38 Tuesday, 40 Wednesday, and 44 yesterday with some rain. Supposed to swing back down colder tonight, but I probably won't be doing any fishing until Sunday, unless the ice held up better than I expect it did.

it hit 40 last two days here but when we left yesterday around 3 our spikes sank in only a quarter inch or so, still solid on the edge
was gonna go today but we are on the edge of the blizzard, i have seen anywhere from 1 to 7 inches from the weather guessers  ???

We're only supposed to get a dusting this far east, but it is raining and 34 right now, which surely isn't helping the ice.

Did pretty well this morning on a small pond. I went out from 7:30-10 and pulled 17 gills. About half dinks, half decent sized, nothing real big. The ice was a bit soft around the edges, but the sheet was 3.5-4.5" The bite just flat died around 9am, the fish were still there, they just stopped biting anything.
