Great fishing there. The trick is small pink jig and meal worm. Best thing is to keep it dead stick the fish are finiky. There are bows from 16-24" I have seen caught.

I've been fishing it the last 15 days except Christmas, in my opinion I would keep an open mind. Everyday is different, some days they want jigs worked aggressively and some they want it still. Color is something I play with daily. To catch fish throughout the day I have been changing color 3 to 4 times a day. Today it only took 2 colors to get me through. The best advice I can give you, is if you're not seeing fish, move. And move as many times as it takes until you find fish. Once you find them throw everything you own at them until you get a response. Be careful the fish are spooky about noise, light, and alot of other things. For me waxies have out performed mealies 10 to 1. Stay near the veggies.

Well we went down yesterday(southshore), we got the big 0. We threw everything at them. I could see the fish on my underwater camera, but they just were not biting. We did meet a few people who were having catching, but not many. GOOD LUCK TO ALL

well we went down thursday and my dad had two bites at about 10 so we moved around the south part of the lake all day we moved prolly 8 or 9 times and then got to a spot and i tied into a nice fish got it right to the bottom of the hole and my hook bent darn near straight so he got off about 10 minutes my dad tied into one and it broke his line this was between 145 and 245 so we decided to stay the night we went out today and moved 10 times finally found a spot today and seen fish on the camera we threw everything we could at them and not a single bite i watched nice fish look at my jig and just werent interested but we are not discouraged we seen one fish on the ice today and one yesterday. but i still am satisfied with the size and fight of the fish very happy with antero even though we got skunked might go back sunday so any tips will help
