Fished 0715-1415 hours this day out between Cotton Road and Brandenburg.

Water mostly clear; ice 6-8 inches thick and not nearly as slippery with a fresh coat of snow on it. Ice not cracking and heaving as much with a blanket of snow.

We fished 4 and a half feet of water.

We caught 50 perch and kept 20; nothing huge; the really big females were just watching which is odd because two days ago the really big females would take one swipe at least before moving on. We caught a few of them that day.

The real irritating part was at the start (0730) still dark enough for walleye. It was hard to see down into the hole at that time, but there were some pretty good size fish rolling through without biting. We were not in spearing mode, so that was that.

The perch were mostly showing up for minnows, but hit Jensen Eggs just as much.

Things really slowed down after noon; saw three dinks total in the last two hours.

No pics, but it you can imagine 20 very average perch, you get the picture...

Did you get on the ice at b-burg and walk or ride around the point? If so, how's the ice conditions there? Were you on weeds? Thanks

We have access to the lake from a private residence and we keep our shantys and whatnot in a shed there. Very convenient.

The only weeds anywhere around are in front of the Lottivue canal. Everywhere else is just sand--no structure at all.

We do about as good fishing as people at the Salt River do.

North of Lottivue, I've been seeing a pair of swans standing around, so I believe there is some open water between Lottivue and Brandenburg.
