Slowest fishing in years
« on: Dec 28, 2011, 08:50 PM »
Measured with a tape 50 holes averaged 10 inches of ice South of Fremont bay
23rd  no fish no flags 4 hours temp 4 low 12 high
26th  2 of us 12 lines, 5 flags and 3 big perch 19 hours temp -12 low 18 high
27th    me/myself/ 6 lines 5 perch 2 walleyes  18 flags  temp -4 low 22 high
28th me again 2 walleyes 6 flags. 19 hours temp 14 low 37 high
So 8 very nice perch and 4 16 inch walleyes
I also have 2 other friends that have fished the last 3 days with no fish and they have moved all over.

I'm hoping the fish are basketball fans, and have been on a hunger strike since the lockout. Now with games running, lets wake up fish! GRRRR

ps...GO NUGGETS!

I agree. I have been out twice this year and have yet to catch a walleye. I have heard that north has been better fishing.

I honestly think it might be like this all over the state. Early ice isn't how it should be! Had real slow fishing over here on the Gorge too.

I believe the fish are suffering from a common disease   called lock-jaw.   This can only be  overcome with lots of time, an o-well approach and a great hut party with lots of good food. 
In reality I think there is lots of food and they just are not that hungry.

I have had the best start to an icefishing season that I have had in several years.  I must be holding my mouth right.   ;)    I haven't caught a ton of fish, but what I have caught have been very nice.   It's new years weekend and all the weekenders will be out tearing it up.   Lets see how the fish count goes after the weekend.

I would have to say this year has been the best year I have had in 10 years.
The Walleye fishing has been unreal, I must be getting a turn in luck.

I'm with you, I've only pulled a few big ones out this year. The majority of the eyes has been around 2 pds, which in my book is "Perfect"
