Clear Lake, Spirit Lake and the IGLS have been good. The sleeper on Clear has been kicking out some nice panfish with a few nice Walleye mixed in. The Yellow bass have been biting like crazy on the west end of the big lake. If your looking for Yellows work 8 to 10 ft and when you start to catch a few drill out the area so you can cover more water. If your looking for Crappie work the little lake dredge cuts. Over at the IGLS Spirit has been good. You will want to work 21ft out from buffalo run. The bite on East has probably been the most consistent bite at boji this year. If you fish east work 18 to 20 ft and small spoons has been the ticket for us. Fish the bar at Emerson’s if your looking for gills. Small dingle drop with a smashed waxie has been our best bait.
The cold snap has had a impact on the bite but we are still finding some good gills and crappie. Tomorrow I take off to Rapid City to fish with some boys from the Rapid City Boys Club. (Hooked On Hard Water Event) This is the most rewarding event I do all year. There is nothing like taking some under privileged kids out ice fishing and truly giving them an opportunity to experience some pretty cool things.
The team will be out with clients all weekend around Clear Lake and I’ll post some reports Monday or Tuesday. I will also be posting my report when I get home. Thanks again for following along everyone!
