I was out on Nov. 24 - a lot of surface melting, which pick about 4 inches of water on top for many spots. But 8-10 inches of ice below.

Just head to the middle of the lake. If you don't get action move over 10-20' and try again. Been using micro jigs with a minnow bounce it off bottom a bit till they come in and catch away. Steady perch from Loneys to the Prov park all winter so far.

Have not been out since the 28th of nov, but the ice is a good 10" in most spots on the north shore. Bite has been consistent for perch and also getting some jack, walleye and burbot here and there. The perch are not as big as last year yet, they still have some bulking up to do. Both south and north shore have been productive. None were better than the other as of yet for me

Catching Jack and Walleye at causeway, couple walleye mostly jack. Was at east end of causeway in corner about 8-9 o clock on monday night caught a couple small jacks only about 3 pounds each, tons of movement in water could tell fish had minnows running. If you dont mind brushing a few ticks off, I think that corner down there would be a great spot on a little warmer night.
