We have had a decent walleye day bite and a strong morning/afternoon bite. Depths of 13 to 24 feet have been best. Always downsize this time of year and drill a lot of holes to find exact fish locations. Grindstone, Round and LCO have been good.
Pike fishing has been good near deeper weed growth. A lot of fish in the 27 to 33 inch range. Suckers and Shiners are typically the baits of choice.
Crappie fishing has been hot on both the Chippewa Flowage and other bodies of water. Typically try for deeper cribs, brush piles, and holes. The cribs off of Pine Point are usually a hit, and fishermen have reported increased activity in the deep holes off the west side of Popple Island.
This next week we will be seeing highs primarily in the low 20s and mid teens and lows ranging from the mid teens to sub zero temperatures. Expect some snow on Monday, Tuesday, and Sunday. Ice Depth is approximately 18 inches. But, as always, ensure you exercise caution whenever going out on the ice.
In addition to the fishing reports, there is now a new News Section on the Jenk's Bait and Tackle Website. Please check regularly for updates. These news updates will now be posted here as well as the Jenk's Bait and Tackle Facebook page. This is to accommodate those fishermen that are not subscribed to Facebook.
