I was at north sterling last weekend. Got the skunk...which is rare. Marked tons of fish. I think they were mostly baitfish, specifically shad. Had many large bait balls come through when I tried deeper water. No predators following them.

Fished north Sterling the past three days, never went to jumbo. Caught lots of bluegills and that was it. Marked lots of fish in deeper water but couldn't get them to commit. Ice is deteriorating fast. Was 6-8 inches everywhere on the east side where we drilled but there was a very large pressure ridges and a few big open water holes starting to form. Water clarity less than 6 inches and the lake is down 10-12 feet.
