I have ice fished this lake with hit or miss success in the past but always wondered what the night bite was like. My son and i planned an all niter for this last sat. Got set up about 3pm and started very slow with us not catching a fish till close to 8pm. We did manage to get a limit but it was a grind. Didnt seem like any particular time period had a flurry of activity but managed to pick off a fish every 45 to 90 mins all night long with the bite slowing down after about 8am sun morning. Got alot of dinks that this lake is known for but did get a couple 15 inchers and 3 more between 17 and 19 inches. Almost all of our fish came from 18' to 28' and most came on the deadsticks in the house.

    Nice work! How was the ice? I’ll be pulling my permanent out this weekend.

    I didn't measure but looks to be 20" plus inches of good ice. Its only about 6 inches or so away from needing an auger extension. I pulled my sleds out with a 4 wheeler just because I'm kind of a nervous nellie when it comes to driving on the ice unless I have to. There were pickups and permanents all over the lake. Just don't cross any pressure ridges.
