FISHING REPORT from JEFF ROBL
2/2/14 12:26 PM CST
Ice Depth: 20" Conditions: Partly Sunny Air Temp: 6° - 10° F Water Temp: Below 40° F
Spent Friday afternoon and Saturday fishing with Rick and Greg, visitors from Ohio. Friday with the clear skies and cold weather the fish weren't very aggressive, we caught a couple fish and had quite a few tip-ups with a foot of line taken out then the fish dropping the bait. Saturday the bite was a little better with bites throughout the day, our two biggest fish came right at sunset. We tried jigging a deeper spot during the day (14-17) with no luck, our fish came on tip-ups in 6-8' with shiners. There have been a lot of days this season where fishing without a heated shanty or portable would have been pretty hard to take. Saturday with the temp warming into the teens and the light wind we spent most of our day on the ice. We have had a lot of bitter cold weather but with all the snow to go with it the scenery in the northwoods is beautiful.
Travel report: snowmobiles! unless you have a 4-wheeler with tracks on it. There are pockets of slush but there is enough snow on top to stay on top when moving, just don't park in the slush and when moving and hit slush below your sled don't slow down. We had no problems travelling on the snowmobiles. We have 4 weekends of walleye fishing left come enjoy the northwoods, other then the cold it has been a beautiful winter.

The fishing report the last few days here on the Flowage has been a good one.
