Fish are being caught but they are not exactly jumping out of the ice hole over the last few days. Definitely having to work and put some time in to get a few. I always tell customers usually after a few slow days of fishing you can expect the fishing to ramp up over the next few days. We have some snow forecasted and some cold temperatures for Wednesday night! In the Annandale area I am finding 12-14 inches of ice! Sure feels good to be out with the truck getting around. I did a guided outing yesterday and we were targeting crappies. We ended up having 4 walleyes iced, half a dozen crappies. We had crappies and sunfish on the camera along with walleyes but they were tight lipped yesterday so I expect a good bite going into middle of this week and next weekend. Pictured below are from the Annandale area. Had a couple nice sunfish I kept. We are fishing in 29ft of water.
I did have the hook and go rental go to Mille lacs lake they went out of Red door and had anywhere from 12-17 inches of ice. They said fishing was a bit slow a lot of fish would chase but had a tough time getting them to bite off the north end of Mille Lacs. Pictured below is one nice fish they caught!
I also had a group head out to Devils Lake that we outfitted them with some equipment. They were targeting Perch gold tungsten jigs tipped with wax worms was the go to. The walleye bite was a low light hours bite on Green jigs fishing off rocky points with a full minnow. Pictured below is a nice Pike they caught. They mentioned the bite was slow for them also on Devils Lake ND. I expect we will have some good fishing coming up after the slower reports over the last few days!
