The bite last week slowed down, typical for mid January. The bite window each day is short, but if you put in the time, fish can be caught. We iced some decent blue gills, along with a few perch and crappies fishing various jigs tipped with wax worms or spikes. Bass and northerns on tip ups fished with shiners. The ice where we fished measured 8 plus inches. As always, use caution when accessing the ice as some of the shorelines can be bad. The weather is great, so get out and enjoy the great outdoors!
