Ice fishing
Jan 17th, 2014 at 3:27pm
 
Good afternoon all. Been coming to 4mile all my life but just recently finally bought a cottage here. Just wondering if anybody has iced fished and how it was. I know the walleye are out of season, but wondeing if anybody has got into any decent size perch. Also wondering if Crappie are in the lake. Looking forward to a great year. Cheers.

We tried ice fishing over the New Years break and couldn't catch anything.  We tried in the middle of the lake and the weed bed by our shore.  We also tried in the bay along the east side of the lake.  We are new at it so it was probably our knowledge letting us down.

It was 12" at New Years.  I bet it's almost doubled by now.

Oh nice.  Where were you fishing and what bait do you use?

I'll PM ya. Ya, caught nothing. Four Mile was fished out years ago. Hopefully it comes back around, but that might  be years down the road.
