If anyone can post tomorrow how the ice is off the boat ramp it would be much appreciated for those who live a long ways away.

Just came off the ramp area and found 5-6 pretty much everywhere. Went a ways out to a spot and seemed to be a steady 6 further out. Ice actually seemed to be in good shape. Only one keeper eye. Went 18 3/4

Id be careful at academy bay walking on from the academy. Ice isnt always the best right there. Im sure the ice is ok out where the fish are but getting on may be tricky there spud away

I drove by the north end this morning and there were a few shanties out.  I couldn't tell you how thick it was, as I was just passing through.

Can anyone tell me where it is OK to park on this lake besides the launch.  I know where that is but am not familiar with parking on other portions of the lake.

Where do you park to fish academy Bay?

Where do you park to fish off the beach?

Thanks.  I hope to go out this afternoon.

I believe you can park at academy on the bay and at the beach.

Yes you can park at the academy awards but be careful people are saying the ice toward shore to be thin I have not here. There's lots of people fishing all over the weekend a lot of small perch

Fished maxi today from 5 am to about 1200 . Drilled numerous holes fished alot of humps and drops finding weeds / grass. Walked probably a mile and half ! And the bite was on fire ! ...... For three inch perch and gills . We could not get away from them ! Didn't matter depth they were there !! Also was catching these shiner looking big minnows ?? Never caught these before and also another fisherman said the same . Alll in all good day to be out and pulling the shanty on this long walk was a breeze, it walked right beside me like a dog !

Caught one of those shiners last night myself! Yeh a lot of dink perch this year whoever my friends and I have landed quite a few eyes so far this year too. Got a 17 this morning and a 10 1/2 gill and a bunch of dink perch. Slow day today. Ice conditions are nice down by launch. Solid good ice! Not sure about anywhere else though seen quite a few guys all over today.

I've also caught these shiner like minnows. I keep them and use them for tip up bait. Caught a 3lb lg mouth bass yesterday on another lake using one.  :thumbsup: Maxi lake is a stubborn lake on some days, then on others she gives up much. Either way, always love fishing there. Keep keeping on!

No I was by myself in a ice pattern clam one man. Got out late at about 8 est. and caught the eye within first 20 minutes and thought man it might be a good day then got slow as could be.
