Entered my 4th calendar month of ice fishing yesterday with the kids. They rode around on the snowmobile and I fished. 2 dandy keeper Walleyes and 2 Perch. One of the Perch looked like a football. Released one Walleye and kept one because it ate the large treble. Gave them to a group of guys a few hundred yards down the ice as I have lots of fillets frozen up. Good times, great long season
Go to Heaven for the climate, to hell for the company!

This page hasnít been resurrected in awhile, personally feeling that the derby wonít be happening again this year, but isnít it odd that the website hasnít been updated at all? Iíve only seen one post on Facebook even listing a date for this year. Just wondered if anyone had heard anything?  :tipup:

I'm guessing that they are waiting it out to see if there's a remote chance it will really be happening. The lake hasn't been too good to us this year at making and keeping the ice. ☹️

Yeah it definitely seems like a long shot this year...

Has anyone been out fishing on Whitney lately?  Wondering if there is at least enough ice to support me and some minnows...  Thanks!

Was out today - put in opposite the park.  Ice was in the ~4Ē range; any less and Iíd not have stayed.  Fishing was slow.

I remember the days when we had plenty of ice to hold the derby. Now it seems like a once every 3 years or so derby.  :%$#!: :%$#!:

Fished last night from 4-9.....several small crappies and walleyes.  Rock bass came through periodically...they were nice sized so I kept 6 for a meal.
 I was near the islands...Ice was around 5 inches and the slush was not nearly as bad as i thought it would be.

On Sunday, 3 of us managed one bluegill and one 14" eye (dozens of lookers).  The group next to us landed what looked to be a 5# eye.  This was in the pond.  Lots of ice, some slick spots, bring creepers.
