Lakes are iced over. Who's fishing where? And what are you catching? Post pictures if possible. I might go ice fish Eagle Lake next weekend.

I am thinking about heading out on the ice 2 weeks from now. After finals are done with and get my ice fishing gear out for the first time and maybe the last time of the year. I wanted to go ice fishing today but the lake is doesn't have any ice. Oh, well.

Anybody doing any ice fishing this year? Not really my thing, but the lakes are usually packed on the weekends. Where do you fish at, and what are you fishing for?

I did it a couple times for pike, bass, and crappie.

Hey if anyone is out fishing this week (I got a week off) lemme me know. I'm a beginning fisher so tips much appreciated for Chicagoland shore fishing. Hyde Park, Southside, even better.

Yep DUG, was out last weekend on Pistakee and caught my limit of Walleye and a few nice catfish on accident. Was fishing the river mouth on the west side jigging a 3/8 oz chartreuse jig head tipped with crawlers. I wasn't the only one hitting, The area was under heavy pressure but most boats were pulling them in. Then hit the docks and caught a few bass along Bald Knob. Nothing major all were under 16 inches. A guy in the boat next to me hit a 31 inch Walleye in the rive mouth.
