Late January Ice Fishing Report

Capt. John Bomkamp, Contributor

With all the snow on the ice and frequent cold fronts coming through,  fishing has been pretty slow here on our river systems.   If you put in the time, you can catch enough for a small fish fry!  Getting a few pike on tip ups, great for pickling.

On Jan 29, we fished over on the Mississippi near Lansing.  The ice was a good 15 inches there. Fishing should improve when the days start getting longer and the weather starts to warm.  Already preparing for the spring perch and walleye runs!
