Northern Pike Fishing
Typical winter temperatures this past week brought out more anglers, but fishing for the most part was slow.
Walleye and sauger action hasn't caught on again since the harsh cold front started moving out. The reported depths for the best chance was 36'. Minnow and a glow jig remained a good presentation.
Northern pike still the active fish, they seem to show up throughout the day at various depths, however they favor shallow water outside the weeds in 12-18' of water.
A few anglers found big perch while searching for walleyes in mid-depths around 28'.
Once again, the ice surface is slush free permitting travel nearly anywhere on the lakes.
Ice thickness is reported at 34-40" depending on currents and location.
Have a Great Day!
