Ice conditions are improving a few days ago we had slush on the lakes from the last snow fall and our area of the state the lakes are firming up out here in the Annandale area. The last spots that froze up we are finding around 8-10 inches of ice. The spots we have been fishing are around 12 inches of ice. We have some nice ice making weather over the next week with some cold nights in the forecast. Lots of ice that has not been touched by wheel houses this year and fisherman so this next week we are going to have some good fishing as the wheel houses roll out on the local lakes. The crappie bite has been in 22 feet of water out to 41ft of water on the lakes we have been fishing. The key has been to stay mobile and move around. Pictures below are from the last week.
