Pratt Lake 12/26/13

 

Catch and Release Walleye East Shore 17 FOW
 
We made our first ice fishing trip of the season to Pratt Lake this afternoon. The ice conditions were very good with 6 to 7 inches, but deep snow and slush made pulling the sled no fun.  We setup at 2pm on the East side of the lake and started looking for fish with the camera.  We found blue gills in 15 to 17 FOW, but could not get them to bite.   The tip up action started at 4pm with a few small pike and a bass.  At 5pm we hooked our first walleye on a slick jig tipped with a wax worm and then lost one at the hole 10 minute later.   Overall we found fish but the bite was slow.
 
Good Luck...
