I went to check ice at my two FPD lakes today.Arrowhead is locked up but only about 2" shore ice and looking at the cracks farther out maybe 3" away from shore.Turtlehead still has a lot of open water and is about 20 feet out of its banks again.So maybe next weekend.

I checked Wampum yesterday and found 50 to 100 foot of open water between the west shore and the ice.

Another ice season of travel to find good ice but there is good ice out there.

Yes, Bluegills can be taken. That bluegill study went on for maybe 5 years but releasing the fish over 8" never proved to grow a population of larger gills.
During that period though, over one ice season, I know of 12 bluegills of 10 inches in length that were caught in Wampum.

What was biting? Have not been to arrowhead(ice fishing) in years. Do okay in open water but when it comes to ice time usually just scattered dink gills so gave up :cuss

Couple of crappies and few nice gills. I've pulled a few bass out of there this year thru the ice as well. There are a lot of dink gills, but you can find some nice ones if you spend the time looking for them.

Nice selection of fish! Glad someone is catching them through the ice :drink

Went out to turtlehead today for a walk and a little fishing,however it is about 15 feet out of it's banks.The right side was into the big wind and the left side is flooded from half way to the corner.I packed up and looked at arrowhead and that was a mud puddle wlth maybe 4" visibility.
