Fished 3.5-5 in Mills county today. Caught one bass. Sure was nice to get out.

Found about 2-3 inches of ice.  Caught 3 bass 15-17 inches at a farm pond North of Red Oak Ia.

Was able to get out on ice this afternoon and fish a pond south of Glenwood. We had 3-5" inches. Caught several nice bass (3-4 were 3lbs and one was approaching what we think was 6lbs. It measured 24 3/4 inches and she was fat! Caught (there were 3 of us) about 25-30 crappies ranging from 6-11" and a few decent gills. We also caught one large catfish (was really cool to see big fish fight in clear water under clear ice!)
Lures used:  CJ and spins gold slender spoon, acme rattle bait, buckshot spoon, Tungsten jigs with maki plastics, CJ & spins red wedgie plastic,
we fished from 10:30-2:30pm (bite noticeably slowed down about 12:30pm)
pond was a shallow one (deepest water is 7ft) so we stayed in that 5-7ft range and one guy with us knew were some sunken brush was, so we fished nearby it.

we heard that a few people may have been on Mile Hill Lake west of Glenwood today, but we can't confirm that.
nice day to be out and fish on hard water!

kpmswi:
Sunday afternoon from 3:30-5:30 found 4" of ice and caught 1 catfish, 3 bass and 12 nice bluegills with one going over a pound at a farm pond North of Red Oak

Ice_Fly_Guy:
Nice haul Kpmswi, I also slammed some really nice bluegills on Sunday afternoon at a small public lake.  All released though.  It's awesome to be getting out this early!
