    Lots of snow is making for tough conditions as ice anglers head out.  With that said the ice fishing has been very good. We had a great week catching some very nice crappies, bluegills, pike and walleyes.  The ice conditions are very good with most areas showing 16 or more inches of good ice.  Don’t let that completely fool you...

    Fishing in the Lakeland area got a little tougher after a week of snow and cold.  Snow could have been worse, luckily it was light enough to blow off the lakes to some extent.  The frozen crust from the earlier ice storm did protect some, but overall on the lakes it’s not bad.   The cold (29 below 2/9) kept more anglers off t...
