Duck Harbor
« on: January 21, 2017, 06:26:08 PM »
Fished  Duck Harbor 1PM til dark. Lot's of small perch and pumpkinseed but landed a good 13in. perch. Don't really know this lake and fished in front of launch to the other side. A couple of groups were to right (North) and I spoke to one gentleman who said they caught bass, brown trout and perch up the northern end. 8-9 inches of hard ice tight to the shore. If looking for safe ice this is a go. FT

Fished Duck Harbor 4 weeks ago about 6" ice, my son and I caught our limit small mouth, threw about as many back. Caught only a few perch and really small gills. Went out to the middle and fished about 25 FOW and about 4' off the bottom with 3" shiners. You need to go out of the launch to the far end to get into good weed beds. Good luck!

My son just called with his Duck Harbor report.
They caught a few nice Smallies' 5 Decent perch,lots of small perch.
All on tipups.

Jigging only produced tiny perch and 5" gills.
They had fun he said.
Thats all that matters.

They got on at a private spot.shore was open 2' when the got on.
Was freezing back up when they were leaving.
Said there was a good 7" pluss good ice plus 2" of crap ice.
But plenty safe to fish.

Dont bank on my word.
But i think it will be safe.
Depending on the rain today vers.snow will determine the shore though.
Im pretty sure there is a derby there this weekend.

Im hoping to get on the ice somewhere.

Nice outing Chez! I never caught a smallmouth thru the ice. I might have to get up there before ice-out this year!

The Pack gives up some smallies through the ice.  Fish steep drop offs.  I only catch nice size ones, even on tiny tungsten jigs.

I've caught smallies in Lower Lake in open water.  In the channel between the upper end of Lower Lake and the dam end.

Fished DH today, started test drilling 25ft from launch and 7-8 inches of good ice. Out further the ice was 10+inches with 1 1/2 inches of wind swept snow. Wind was bad and constant snow squalls, with the drifting snow it was hard to keep hole clean. After about 2hrs of misery and 4 dink perch all under 5" I said to myself " really Joe". But the ice is there and that's a good thing for the weekend guys. FT
