Quite a few guys out at Balsam on Boxing Day. Like usual, some did well some not so much. There is a bite out on the lake, you just have to find them.

I fished around 10'. Donavan was catching in 17' I think. I am sure he will post something.

South West side (not Chalet).
Lost one in 6' of water
Caught a 17' Football in 8'
Ice was 14", but very rough, some water around Ice ridges.
Quad would be OK, but wouldn't take a truck out yet.
You may get out, but getting back?? if cracks open up.

You should have seen our flashers in the last 30 minutes when the windy was howling before dark...seen that a few times before eh ;)

Hey Blackwater, we were the group just east of you with all the kids, we did real good, they were biting pretty well everything, only one skunk out of ten of us, shore lunch was great, mostly all off the bottom, few suspended, nephew caught 3 species, LX7 worked great, Lee glad you stopped in for a bit, always a pleasure, that clear ice sure makes you want to stop but glad we didn't, can't wait for next trip back to the lake.

Great to hear. You were the group to the east of us early in the day around noon? Lee drove past you to come see us and then back past you when he left at noon?

I ask because we didn't see many suspended fish until we hit deeper water later on in the day. you must have been in 14-15 feet over there?

Great to hear you had a good day especially when the kids are along, will have to stop next time and join you for the fish fry...mmmm :lol:

Yes that was us, always drop please cause we almost always have a fry, even brought some ready to go just in case we wear a stripe, but yesterday was a good one, Lee dropped by after he left you guys, mostly we got from the bottom, but we had a few nice ones about half way up, going back out Thursday morning with some other friends with 3 kids, it will be a first for them so hope the fish are still close. Have a buddy out right now and put him the vecinity and he is catching quite a few.
