fished stillwater today
jigged up a lot of decent sized bluegills
and a few calico
ice is about 12 inches
looks like the rain and warm temps
is going to take its toll on the ice this week.

Looking for an update on bantam later this week. I'm thinking about trying it on Saturday since I haven't tried for pike yet this year

Went to the south end by the launch today and couldnít get on. Might be able to use a plank. Iím sure once u get out there itís safe.

Breathable waders have helped me a few times when the ice pulls away from the shore.

I fished stillwater on Saturday. There was over 10 inches of ice and the
edges were locked up. Very surprised as the pond made ice all morning.
I caught a few bass and perch and one big bullhead. 23 ' and 4 lbs
My buddy jigged up a bunch of bluegills perch and bass. Great day.
