As the small shallow lakes freeze I’m leaning towards the big lakes in the Boat. Ice under 5” is not a good idea. If your in a Boat concentrate on early ice locations and presentations. Just don’t tell the fish you are in a Boat. Lol. Fish the weed lines for walleyes and suspended panfish. […]

Fishing remains good if you can handle the weather. We’ve been catching huge bluegills and crappies in the 15-20 ft range with plastics or jig and Minnow combos.
