|Lots of water flowing to the hole. |
Floating Tip Up.
|Fishermen in front of the boat launch. Lots of fog and slush.|
It seems like every time I get a day to go ice fishing this season mother nature doesn't want to cooperate. Despite the warm temperatures and rain on Friday I made a trip over to Lake Mitchell to try out the walleye action. When I arrived at the lake the ice had 2 inches of slush and the fog was thick enough that I couldn't see across the lake. Ready to fish I headed out of the launch to fish on the south shore. After searching for an hour I saw a few walleyes on the camera in 10 to 11 FOW. The fishing action was just as bad as the weather. In six hours of fishing I saw five walleyes and never hooked anything. Lake Mitchell had 9 to 10 inches of ice and should be good fishing when the weather straightens up.
