Fishing the weekend 15th-17th of January, I am sure with the cold snap this up coming weekend ice will be good but checking reports on the area lakes. I am taking my brother-in-law, who just moved back from California and would like to put him on some fish. My lake I fish is Round up by Waukenabo, and never have I had any luck with catching on hard water there or even in the summer for that matter, a reason we have always called it the dead sea. Please PM me if you have any tips! Thank you in advance!

I will have to try those this weekend and report back. Does anyone have any experience on these lakes on the hard water over the last couple of years?

Sissabagama? I've fished it quite a few times in the past winters. Was good for crappies several years ago, but hasn't produced for me the last few years. Used to be able to drill holes until I could see the crappies in 28- 32' sitting from about 18 to 24' down. Had the wheel house out there last year and didn't do much. Probably drilled 50 holes. Fished West side of island in a little over 30 fow. Never have had a nite bite on the lake. Something really weird happens in 30' of water after dark on that lake. My vexilar starts to show solid from 15' down. It starts gradually from the bottom and works its way up. Can't figure what's causing it. Asked vexilar and they didn't have a clue. Someone thought it might be red worms.

One of our guys caught a 6 lb. walleye early one morning. Lots of hammer handle northern.

what your seeing is plankton ascending after dark. the crappies are there. you need to follow your jig down in the zone and look close for the brighter mark from marking a fish.
its a bit annoying until you figure it out. they are there in that mess of plankton.
nothing wrong with your vex.

Sissabagamah Only lake I ever seen that happen on. It gets so thick, you can't see your jig. Why only at night?

I would hit the lake right by Round, Esquagamah. It's been years but we always caught fish on that lake.
